Prime Minister Patrick Manning confirmed yesterday that he has received the Uff report of the Commission of Enquiry investigating Udecott and the local construction sector.
He said, too, it was his intention to make the report public. Yes; I got it (the report)," Manning said. "No. I have not had a chance to read it." Manning said "it was always a commitment" for the report to be made public and published. Manning also dodged questions about putting the PNM on alert for a general election.
He declined to comment on any plans to hold a general election this year. Manning spoke shortly after yesterday's People's National Movement walkabout in the Toco/Sangre Grande constituency. The walk was a continuation of the PNM's Meet the Constituents series titled: Explaining Policies, Providing Opportunities. Manning led the walkabout from around 4.30 to 5.30 pm at the corner of Quarry and Old Valencia Roads.
