Thank you, Madam Presiding Officer. The Chief Secretary is not in the House at this time; may his request be deferred until he is in the House.

Question deferred to next Sitting.

Minority Leader.

Before we start Minority Leader, can I have your attention? This House
starts at 1.30 p.m. and I will caution each Member, every Member, to please
abide by the Standing Orders. This would not be tolerated again.

Thank you. [Desk thumping]

Thank you, Madam Presiding Officer.


The Minority Leader asked the Secretary of Infrastructure, Quarries and Urban Development the following question:

“As it relates to the Studley Park Enterprise Limited Board of Directors, can the Secretary please indicate if there is a difference in the roles, functions and remuneration of the Independent Directors appointed to the Board as opposed to the Executive Directors appointed to the Board?”

Secretary of Infrastructure, Quarries and Urban Development.

Good afternoon, Madam Presiding Officer, good afternoon Members. As always, it is an honour to be able to speak in this august House.

      Madam Presiding Officer, I have read this question several times in order to try to understand what the question is asking. I suppose that I have failed because it could not be that the Member was asking what seems to me,to be a rhetorical question.

He represents an organization that has tremendous experience in setting up Boards and understanding what the roles and functions of Board Members are - to come to this House today to ask this question. I had intended to give a long foreword, Madam Presiding Officer, but I have decided to answer the question as it is written:

If there is a difference in the roles?

       Absolutely, there is a difference in the roles.

If there is a difference in the functions?

         Absolutely, there is a difference in the functions; and          Absolutely, there is a difference in the remuneration of all Independent Directors and of the Executive Directors appointed to the Board at the Studley Park Quarry.
