ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The House of Assembly (HoA) is continuing its Second Sitting of the Second Session of the Third HoA today October 25, 2016 as was first and accurately reported by our news room on October 20, 2016.

The HoA last met on October 13, 2016 when Opposition Members accused the D. Orlando Smith Administration of paying little regards to questions from the Opposition in the HoA asked on behalf of the people of the Territory.

The Premier moved the Questions and Answers to the end of the Order Paper at the last Sitting, knowing that he will not be in the Virgin Islands and there was a decision taken by Members not to go beyond 9:00 PM.

It is unclear if the Acting Premier Dr The Honourable Kedrick D. Pickering (R7) will answer the questions asked of the Premier as the public awaits answers to the many reports circulating in the British Overseas Territory about the behaviour of the ruling Administration.

The proceedings of today October 25, 2016 began around 2:40 P.M. and is being carried live on CBN Channel 51 from the HoA Chambers in Road Town, the Virgin Islands' capital city.
