At Thursday's Post Cabinet Media Briefing, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, Stuart Young, cleared up speculation on Minister Maxie Cuffie's health, saying he is in very high spirits and making progress as he goes through a period of specialised rehabilitation in Washington DC.

Minister Young confirmed that Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley has accepted an invitation from the People's Republic of China to attend high level meetings in Beijing later this month. Ten world leaders will attend the Beijing meetings. Mrs. Sharon Rowley and a small delegation will accompany the Prime Minister.

Minister Young also clarified issues surrounding the accommodation of Victoria Keyes units for Tobago MPs Shamfa Cudjoe & Ayanna Webster-Roy. He said units at Federation Villas, where the Tobago MPs would've stayed, were rundown and in need of refurbishment, but the Ministers are not utilising rent-to-own units at Victoria Keyes and will have to give up the premises when they give up office.

He also revealed that under the PP Government, several Ministers and non-Ministers were afforded accommodation at Federation Villas. This matter will be further investigated since it has come to Government's attention that computers were taken to the Villas and "wiped."
