Barbados Attorney General David Simmons speaks on the intensified efforts to establish the regional court. Britain's Royal Navy launches its latest plan to recruit more ethnic minorities to its ranks. Fiaz Khan of the Ethnic Minority Enterprise Centre acknowledges the problems of discrimination. British Nuclear Fuels Ltd (BNFL) and a French company are responsible for the shipment of nuclear wastes through the Caribbean. As the shipment sets off from France however, the Caribbean High Commissioners in London have called on the governments of Britain, France and Japan to end the endorsement of such contracts. The Jamaican Cricket Association (JCA) is to hold a meeting to try to find out what went wrong at Sabina Park.
