The Parliament meeting requested by the National Alliance about the airport did not go through last week Thursday due to a lack of quorum. It had to be reconvened within four times 24 hours, so by last Tuesday.

This did not happen; the Parliament announced yesterday that the meeting is now scheduled for March 25. The reason? Minister Ted Richardson is not available.

This poses of course the question what is more important: a prior commitment or a call to appear in parliament.

In our book, that call from Parliament ought to prevail. If Minister Richardson feels he has to be elsewhere the minister who replaces him during his absence should take over. Plain and simple.

The way things are going now, the government coalition loads the suspicion upon itself that it is stalling this meeting for some obscure political reason.
