In connection with the row over the Governor deciding not to pursue a Commission of Inquiry into the land grab at Tucker’s Town someone wrote this:
“The governor did not have to be involved. His powers to launch inquiries are designed for cases where parliament does not want to hold an inquiry but the Governor believes it is in the public interest to do so. An example would be evidence of high-level corruption …. there was nothing stopping parliament from launching its own inquiry”
Is this true?
