More leave from Parliament
By Clint Chan Tack Saturday, August 18 2012
FORMER Prime Minister Patrick Manning yesterday celebrated his 66th birthday. Manning also yesterday sought, and was granted additional leave from sittings of the House of Representatives from July 25 to October 24. Contacted yesterday at their San Fernando home, Manning’s wife, Hazel, said the San Fernando East MP would be spending his birthday “very, very quiet” with his family. She said Manning’s recuperation from the stroke which he suffered on January 23 last, was going very well. On Manning’s Facebook page, several persons posted birthday greetings to him and wishes for a speedy recovery.
At the start of yesterday’s sitting of the House, Speaker Wade Mark said he received correspondence from Manning asking to be excused from sittings of the House from July 25 to October 24 “due to continued illness.” Under Standing Order 84, an MP must get the leave of the Speaker not to attend a sitting of Parliament, or else face sanctions such as the possible vacating of their seat.
