JAMAICA'S PARLIAMENT has confirmed reports by The Gleaner that British Prime Minister David Cameron will, on Wednesday, address a joint sitting of the Upper and Lower Houses of Parliament.

Cameron, who will be on the island on official visit, is expected to make his presentation to the 84 members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate in an uncharacteristically early sitting, beginning at 8:25 a.m.

The British prime minister will also hold bilateral talks with the Portia Simpson Miller-led Government on economic and security issues, among others.

The last United Kingdom leader who visited Jamaica was Tony Blair in July 2001.
