Opposition walks out of Parliament over Outameni questions

Published:Tuesday | November 25, 2014 | 4:05 PM

The Opposition walked out of parliament after demands that Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller answers questions relating to the purchase of Outameni lands were shot down.

House Speaker Michael Peart ruled that the questions tabled last week by Opposition Leader Andrew Holness, are not due to be answered until tomorrow.

The Opposition insisted it would not stay in the Chamber unless the questions are answered, and when Government member Robert Pickersgill suggested they leave, Holness and the other members packed their belongings and left the chamber.
