THE EDITOR: It must surely go down as a first when, Stuart Young, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, had nothing to say about an issue, namely that of National Security Minister Edmund Dillon.
He was only willing to say, “It is a matter personal to Mr Dillon.”
The “Minister of Everything” must now tell the country why in a personal matter Mr Dillon used the Ministry of National Security’s official letterhead and press releases at taxpayers expense, to communicate positive information relating to this “personal matter.”
The all knowing Minister Young would, no doubt, rapidly provide assurances that Mr Dillon was granted the necessary unpaid leave and all his travel and accommodation cost were at his personal cost.
The citizens await confirmation that it did not cost taxpayers any extra in this “personal matter.”
