PUBLIC MEETING 15 APRIL 2013

Part 3

 

By J. Brock (FINN)

 

A public meeting took place in the Court and Assembly Chamber of the town Hall at 1700hrs on Monday, 15 April 2013.  Present were MLAs Sawle, Elsby, Halford and Short.  Gavin Short was Chair of the Meeting.

 

After Sharon Halford saying any decision about money tributes to The late Margaret Thatcher’s funeral would be made in Standing Finance Committee, Dick Sawle said that being remembered in another way was a mystery to him and needed to think about it.  He was against spending money on her funeral.

 

Tim Miller objected to paying his workforce for taking a public holiday. Barry Elsby asked if he preferred it to be a Sunday or a Saturday but Tim Miller believed a free day was not what it was about but one to pay tribute to Mrs Thatcher but he didn’t want to pay his workforce.  Councillors asked if Mr Miller would sound out his employees about the matter.

 

The conversation returned to naming the new port or the airport after Mrs Thatcher as a tribute – or perhaps a stamp in the passport – especially Argentine ones.
