PAC meeting postponed
A public meeting of the Public Accounts Committee scheduled to take place this afternoon has been postponed due to the expected absence of the financial secretary.
The meeting had been set to take place at 2.30pm, with the PAC members speaking to financial secretary Anthony Manders about the controversial airport redevelopment project.
A notice released today however stated that Mr Manders was still recovering from illness and would not be able to attend.
The PAC is comprised of Members of Parliament and is authorised by the House of Assembly to closely examine and report on matters relating to the accounts of the Government of Bermuda and, in particular, to investigate findings reported by the Auditor-General in the Auditor's Annual and other Special Reports.
The chairman of the committee is David Burt, the deputy leader of the Progressive Labour Party and shadow finance minister.
