Falklands : Motion for Adjournment Speech by the Honourable Mrs Jan Cheek, MLA
Submitted by Falkland Islands News Network (Juanita Brock) 24.04.2014 (Article Archived on 08.06.2014)

Mr Speaker, Honourable Members, I would like to reinforce what others have said about the difficult task we have in completing the budget.

Motion for Adjournment Speech by the Honourable Mrs Jan Cheek, MLA

Mr Speaker, Honourable Members, I would like to reinforce what others have said about the difficult task we have in completing the budget.

And I would like to add that we have to be careful not to be seen giving with one hand and taking with the other. But as others have very correctly said whatever we have to do must be sustainable. And like the Honourable Gavin Short, I know we will get there. We always do.

Those of us who already have white hair wonít be troubled but those who havenít will have gained a few white hairs by the end of it.

As has been mentioned next week we have a meeting on the Capital Programme. And we see at public meetings that the vast majority of the electorate are not able or donít wish to attend public meetings and speak out on these issues. So I would urge them to contact Members individually with their questions and their views on this and on whatever other matters that they have strong views on. Otherwise there is a danger that minority views widely expressed can be seen to be representative of the views of the whole community. So I would urge you to continue as you do. Stop us on the Street, in the shop, telephone us but not too late at night, please, take advantage of the Thursday meetings. And remember if those are not convenient - and as from May they will be one to one meetings with a single Member Ė just a phone call to Gilbert House is all you need to set up a meeting with a Member of your choice. We do welcome interest and we are committed to representing you fairly.

I support the Motion.
