Minister of The Arts and Multiculturalism Lincoln Douglas has reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to
granting full autonomy to Tobago. He was echoing the sentiments of the Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly, Orville London at a closed door meeting this week in Tobago.
Questioned on whether this issue is being used as a political football with an election on the horizon, Mr. London said nothing could be further from the truth.

Chair of the meeting, Minister Douglas said one of the reasons for inviting the major political parties of Tobago at the meeting,
was to ensure that all parties involved would be on a level playing field.
