David Burt, the Premier, cancelled his post-Budget press conference at short notice Monday without giving a reason.

This follows the sudden announcement that the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Budget Breakfast, which Mr Burt was due to attend at 8.15am Monday morning, had been postponed until Thursday.

Giving no explanation for the last-minute cancellation, a government spokesperson said: “The Premier’s press conference that was scheduled to be held at 3pm today has been postponed.

“I will advise later the new date and time for this press conference.”

The Royal Gazette has asked for clarification on why the press conference was cancelled at such short notice.

Regarding the Budget Breakfast, Bermuda Chamber of Commerce CEO Kendaree Burgess, said: “We had an unforeseen event resulting in technology challenges.

“We will have those challenges sorted by the new date - Thursday. We look forward to the discussions on Thursday.”
