Education Minister Anthony Garcia says a National Bullying Strategy has been developed to deal with bullying in the nation’s schools. He told members of the House of Representatives that the strategy uses a data driven approach and involves the establishment of disciplinary committees in the schools and at the ministry.
He said schools have appropriate discipline plans which are evidence based, specific to the needs of the particular school. Later in the sitting on Friday, Finance Minister Colm Imbert said proposed reforms being considered by the National Insurance Board require extensive public consultation, public acceptance and national dialogue.
“No decision has been taken on these matters to date,” he stated. One of the reforms is increasing the retirement age from 60 to 65 years. Planning Minister Camille Robinson-Regis said with the exception of Canada, TT Post continues to provide registered mail locally and internationally. She said that in August 2016, the Canadian Postal Corporation indicated it would no longer be providing tracking information for inbound registered mail coming into Canada from other countries.
Indicating that TT Post cannout provide courier services on its own, Robinson-Regis said TT Post has partnered with DHL under the brand name, Humming Bird Express.
