Motion for Adjournment Speech by the Honourable Mr Ian Hansen, MLA Thank you Mr Speaker, Honourable Members, I wasnít here for the last Legislative Assembly. I was overseas. I would like to briefly touch upon the trip myself and Emily Hancox made to the Caribbean. The first couple of days were spent in St Lucia at a Small Statesí Debate and although that was very interesting and there was a lot of networking done, some of the things werenít particularly relevant to the Falklands. I wonít go on too much about this because there has been coverage of it but the visit to Trinidad was extremely successful and some very important links were made. The Trinidad people seem to have the same attitude as the Falkland Islandsí people in that they look at something and see how it can be done as opposed to how it canít be. We found that very interesting. They have a huge amount of expertise concerning oil exploration and exploitation. They have been in the business for many, many years. And they were very helpful in offering their services to us in training not just in the oil business but they have some very significant and capable training facilities in Trinidad. I was very impressed with what we saw. As I say I think there were some very good links made there and we are in the process of maintaining those links. We hope that later on this year we will see a visit from some people from that area. Closer to home yesterday the Honourable Roger Edwards, the Honourable Gavin Short and I visited the Abattoir. I have to say it has been quite a few years since I was there and had a look around inside the place. The thru-put since I was there last has grown considerably. And the way it is run is really quite impressive if anybody gets the chance to go out there and have a look. I was pretty impressed and I am sure my Colleagues were as well. Mr Speaker thatís all I have to say today and I support the Motion.
