There is a call for the Minister of State in the Ministry of the People and Social Development, Vernella Allyene
Toppin, to be sent before the Privileges Committee of Parliament.
Chaguanas West Member of Parliament, Jack Warner, made the appeal in the House of Representatives this afternoon.
Mr Warner said during the March 25th debate on the motion of no confidence in Opposition Leader, Dr Keith Rowley, in
the parliament Mrs Allyene Toppin MP for Tobago East made several unsavory and distasteful statements which targeted
the PNM Political Leader.
He said the comments which targeted the personal life of Dr. Rowley were an abuse of the privileges of the House and
cited the need for the matter to be dealt with.

In response to the request made by Mr Warner, House Speaker, Wade Mark, said he will inform the parliament of his
decision on this matter at the next sitting.
