Funding Solomon's Socially Disadvantaged
Solomon Times On Line
Prime Minister Lilo has explained that taking his wife, his executive secretary, plus other political appointees, totalling 16 in all, to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, is "to link certain activities that happen in the country."
It isn't for me to question the honourable Prime Minister's motives, but I would have thought a much smaller delegation, if funds for such a trip are available might have been better used to provide for the needs of Solomon's disabled, deaf and socially deprived young people.
