    The T&T Chamber of Commerce is calling for amendments to the Freedom of Information Act to be delayed, so that public consultations can first take place.

    In a release it acknowledges the AG’s changes to the proposed amendments.

    The Chamber says it is necessary to maintain the purpose and intent of the Act, and to avoid undermining it with bureaucratic obstacles

    As such, it wants the AG should defer laying the amendments in Parliament until proper public consultations have been completed.
