Tourism Minister Shamfa Cudjoe tells the parliament she has no problem in revealing the findings of the probe done by TSTT into her costly cellular phone roaming bill from her trip to Bahamas earlier this year on official government business.
The issue surrounding this matter was first raised by former Justice Minister and temporary Opposition Senator Christlyn Moore in the Senate.
On Thursday at the weekly post cabinet media briefing Communication Minister, Maxie Cuffie, told reporters that cellular phone roaming rates in the Bahamas are the highest when compared to other Caribbean nations.
However, when questioned repeatedly on the hot topic by the Opposition in the House of Representatives this afternoon, Minister Cudjoe explained that she had utilized Wi-Fi service when it was available.
At one stage during the proceedings several questions came from the Opposition to Minister Cudjoe on the issue causing the House Speaker to intervene to maintain order.
