dc.description.abstractIn this report the differences with Jamaica and Barbados over the signing of the shiprider type arrangement with the United has been downplayed by the United States Envoy, Richard Clarke. Also Mr Clarke was questioned on the US led complaint against the European banana regime at the World Trade Organisation. Next, Anguilla’s Health and Social Services Minister says that his country did not misinterpret the letter from Britain’s Foreign Secretary on reserve powers for governors of British dependent territories in the Caribbean. It states that in the future continued dependence might in some cases require an extension of reserve powers to be exercised by the governor if necessary. In the following, the Head of the OECS Secretariat says there must be a restructuring of the organisation as the OECS seeks to recover from serious financial difficulties. There will be cut backs both within the Secretariat and its offices abroad. Next, as Guyana’s President still remains in a critical condition in a hospital in Washington, his wife has been identified as his most likely successor. Next, a new Afro-American newspaper, Our World News, will soon be available at newsstands in the United States. It has promised to offer more sophisticated coverage of Caribbean affairs. Next, stories of Caribbean interest appearing in the British newspaper. In the final segment, the British newspaper, the Daily Mail, will not face contempt of court proceedings after naming the five young white men responsible for the killing of the black teenager, Stephen Lawrence.en_US
