The Parliamentary Committee on Economic Services has been denied the approval of the Speaker of the National Assembly to conduct public forums on the future of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) and the sugar industry, following the announcement by Government to downsize it. In a letter dated June 5 and addressed to Clerk of Committees, Letta Barker, House Speaker, Dr Barton Scotland said that a public forum did not seem appropriate for the Committee to undertake.“I, therefore, disallow the request and withhold my consent for the Parliamentary Committee on Economic Services to conduct public forums under the cover of the National Assembly,” the letter stated.The Committee had requested since May 31, 2016 to conduct these public forums in Regions Three, Four, Five and Six on specific dates starting from June 7 to June 31, 2017. The request was made under Standing Order (95) 8 and the purpose of the public forums was to receive the views of the various stakeholders in the respective communities and prepare a report to be submitted to the National Assembly. Commenting on the issue, People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Member of Parliament (MP) Komal Chand told Guyana Times that it was a majority decision by the Committee to have these public forums to get an understanding of what people within the industry feels about the decision to downsize. Chand, who happens to also be the President of the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), said that in the past, these requests were never denied, adding that he was not clear on what authority the Speaker has exercised.“I don’t know why the Speaker is now standing in the way to have these forums which is so important for members of the Committee to ascertain the real issues and how it is affecting people,” he said. The Opposition MP said too that members of that same Committee have been meeting with the management and staff of GuySuCo, who did a presentation. The next meeting, according to him, is scheduled for June 29, when the team will appear before the Committee.Following the announcement by Government to close more sugar estates and reduce the annual production of sugar with an overall plan to gradually downsize the industry, there has been much debate about the need for the white paper on sugar to be debated in the National Assembly.Chand claimed that certain procedures have not been put in place by the Government to have the policy debated, explaining that it may not be on the agenda for the next sitting, which is June 15.However, Chand believes that the policy decision taken is of national importance and it ought to be debated by the National Assembly.“The information contained in that white paper has significant effect on the country, the people, and, particularly, the workers in the industry…,” he added.The GAWU official also argued that the white paper presented vague information and did not go into detail on how this matter is going to be dealt with. According to him, Government spokespersons claimed that the Administration has not configured the rollout of this new policy fully.Meanwhile, the PPP, in a statement late Monday evening, said that this latest move was seen as “another attack on parliamentary democracy by the Speaker”.“Further, we view the rejection of this request, as nothing short of an abuse of power and an undue interference with, and restriction of, the democratic right of parliamentarians to properly represent their constituents and the reciprocal constitutional rights of these constituents to receive information from and exchange views with their elected representatives,” the Party said.It pointed out that since the constitutional creation of the Standing Committees almost two decades ago, they have enjoyed unhindered freedom to discharge their mandate, both within and without the precincts of the National Assembly, without any restriction from the Speaker.“The nation is very much aware of the public outings of other Sectoral Committees, eg the Sectoral Committee on Social Services conducts regular visits to public health institutions and other agencies which fall under their portfolio with the permission of the Speaker.”It, therefore, begs the question, the Party stated as to why this sudden restriction was being placed upon the Economic Services Committee as it sought to discuss the sugar industry, which was so critical to the nation’s economic well-being and which represented the lifeblood of tens of thousands of people.“The PPP also recalls the difficulties it encountered at the hands of the Speaker in getting motions debated on the floor of the National Assembly in relation to the sugar and rice industries.”The Party is calling on the Speaker to review his decision forthwith and to grant permission to the Parliamentary Sectoral Committee on Economic Services to meet with the Guyanese people to discuss the future of GuySuCo and the sugar industry.“If the Speaker fails to do so, we will find it extraordinarily difficult to persuade our constituents that the chair is not grossly lacking in impartiality,” the statement said.Government has announced plans to close the Enmore and Rose Hall Sugar Estates, sell the Skeldon Sugar Factory, reduce the annual production of sugar, and take on the responsibility of managing the drainage and irrigation services provided by GuySuCo.Agriculture Minister Noel Holder claimed that this process would result in improving the relationship with some cane cutters, estate staff and about 1710 private cane farmers, adding that GuySuCo’s sugar operations will be limited to the Albion-Rose Hall, Blairmont and Uitvlugt-Wales Estates. The estates will be complete with factories and will have cane supplied from all locations, according to the Agriculture Minister.The Minister had also revealed plans to cut sugar production to approximately 147,000 tonnes per annum.Several members of the Opposition PPP/C have maintained that the white paper on the industry confirmed that the industry was being “maliciously downsized” as a prelude for closure.

CAR put the game to bed with what seemed to be a soft penalty in the 70th minute with Foxi Kethevoama and Eudes Dagoulou having scored in between Eric Johannah’s equalizer.Michael Olunga scored a late second for Kenya, but it was too little too late.Stars’ day went from bad to worse when right back Ismail Gonzalez was sent off for bad-mouthing the referee with 14 minutes left on the clock.Goalkeeper Patrick Matasi was the busiest of the 11 Kenyan players on the pitch, making three brilliant saves that ensured the two teams went to the break tied at 1-1. Save for collecting the ball in his own net after Johannah’s equalizer, the CAR keeper didn’t have much to do.Having drawn 2-2 against Comoros in their first friendly on Saturday, Okumbi’s men came into the tie eager for a win to bring their confidence floating again.He made four changes to his starting team. David Owino took up the captaincy with Victor Wanyama missing while Anthony Akumu took his place in midfield.Ayub Timbe who missed the 2-2 draw with Comoros last Friday started on the left side of midfield ahead of Francis Kahata while AFC Leopards captain Duncan Otieno went in ahead of Johannah Omollo.Paul Were who came on as a second half substitute has also earned the starting role ahead of namesake Jesse Were.Timbe had Kenya’s first chance of the game after six minutes when he drifted to the right to pull in a low shot, but the ball went wide. Three minutes later, Timbe was in the thick of things once again this time sliding in to an Olunga cross, but he mistimed his run.CAR broke the deadlock in the 14th minute, punishing a careless loss of possession by Kenya. Kethevoama volleyed the ball home from the right unmarked after David Manga had picked the ball off Akumu’s feet on the left and diced in a cross.Stars however responded immediately, Johannah finishing calmly inside the box. Olunga had raced onto a long ball, skipped past the keeper but his shot was blocked Nicaise Zimbori. The Girona forward picked the pieces again and squared it back into the area for Johannah to finish.But CAR continued to command possession, passing the ball well while Kenya relied on second balls, hitting most upfront to Olunga.Kethevoama almost made it 2-1 in the 21st minute but Matasi produced an excellent save to backtrack and tip the ball behind for a corner after the forward had lobbed the ball from the edge of the box.Dagoulou had a chance as well in the 26th minute when a quick exchange of passes at the edge of the box saw him break into the box, but his effort to bend the ball into the top corner was futile, the ball going wide.Harambee Stars players hurdle for a prayer after a training session in Marrakech. PHOTO/FKFMatasi made another great save nine minutes to the break when he went down low at his near post to give a strong palm to Dagoulou’s shot.The Posta Rangers custodian produced another stellar stop four minutes later when Kethevoama’s corner was brushed to Zimbori’s direction who headed it strongly on target, but an agile Matasi parried it away.In the second half, Okumbi started off by bringing in Clifton Miheso for the jaded Timbe who was playing his first competitive match since returning from a three-month injury lay-off. Were was also rested for Samuel Onyango.Stars almost took the lead early on but keeper Geoffrey Lembet made a great save to slap the ball against the crossbar after Saint Cyr Ngam-Ngam brushed it behind as he attempted to clear a cross.Substitute Onyango also came close in the 57th minute when Omar’s freekick from the left found him isolated at the back-post but his volley came off the woodwork.The CAR side however pounced on another chance and made it count, Dagoulou heading strongly unmarked inside the box from Manga’s cross.Immediately, Okumbi made his third change of the game, Patillah Omotto coming on for Johannah. Omotto almost made an immediate impact cutting back a cross for Olunga. But the latter’s connection on his weaker right foot was collected.Stars suffered with a soft penalty awarded to CAR when Momi Hilaire went down easily from a tussle for the ball with skipper Odhiambo inside the box and the ref pointed to the spot. Hilaire took matters into his own hands and scored.Six minutes later, Kenya’s day went from bad to worse when Gonzalez who had an equally long day at right back was sent off for bad-mouthing the ref.Olunga hit a low left footed shot in the 82nd minute, but Kenya could not amass energy for a winner.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars players line up before a past friendly match against Iraq in Basra.

GAA: There was bitter disappointment for Downings this afternoon – as they lost out to the Aran Islands in the All-Ireland Junior Gaeltacht Final.The game was played in extremely difficult conditions, and that affected the quality of the game. Both sides battled hard and played with plenty of spirit and determination despite the elements doing their best to spoil the game.There was very little between the sides in truth – but two first-half goals really done the damage.The concession of those two goals meant it was always going to be a difficult path back for Downings.Aran Island only scored ONE point in the second-half – but that was enough to see them bring the All-Ireland title back to the Islands. The score at half-time was 2-02 to 0-02 and Downings really needed a goal to kick-start their comeback.However, despite their valiant efforts to get not find that elusive goal.They did kick THREE points but it wasn’t enough and the Aran Islands saw off their challenge.Final score: Aran Islands 2-03 Downings 0-05DISAPPOINTMENT FOR DOWNINGS AS THEY LOSE ALL-IRELAND JUNIOR GAELTACHT FINAL was last modified: October 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSport
The Chilean Ambassador to Ireland visited the County Museum in Letterkenny yesterday to officially open a unique exhibition.
