The Government has announced that it will accord an official funeral to the late Roger Clarke, minister of agriculture and fisheries and member of parliament for Central Westmoreland.

The funeral service will take place at the St George's Anglican Church, Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland, next Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow at Glen Islay, Williamsfield, Westmore-land.

Clarke died last Thursday in Florida where he was recuperating following surgery for a back condition. It is reported that the former agriculture minister was at an airport heading for Jamaica when he fell ill and was taken to hospital.

His body will return to the island next Wednesday.
