A clerk from the British Parliament, who spent two weeks on the island working with Bermuda’s Public Accounts Committee, returned to the UK on Saturday.

Stephen McGinness, a Clerk of the House of Commons’ PAC, visited to help the Bermuda committee with planning and reporting its findings.

Dennis Lister Jr, the Speaker of the House, said the trip followed a visit by the Bermuda PAC to the UK in January 2018 to “go through some exercises and training in rules, responsibilities and functions”.

Mr Lister told Dr McGinness, who was in the House of Assembly, that he was “sure you can testify to your colleagues that it has been a very worthy exercise”.
