Labour Minister Jennifer Baptiste- Primus, in
responding to queries about the June 11 death
of National Flour Mills plant superintendent
McAllister Charles and NFM's safety compli-
ance, said the compound has been inspected.
She did so in the Senate yesterday.
Baptiste-Primus said the area was inspected by
Occupational Health and Safety inspectors and
found to be fully compliant with safety standards.
OSH's inspection on Monday pertained to the en-
tire NFM compound. An OSH report is being done
following information on the cause of death, she said.
Also in the Senate yesterday, Opposition Senator
Khadijah Ameen said Health Minister Terrence Dey-
alsingh acted irresponsibly by "tossing aside" public
views about pensioner Christopher Philip's recent
death outside the Port-of- Spain General Hospital.
Philip's body was found on the hospital grounds
last week after he sought attention.
Deyalsingh said Philip was attended to twice and
told the remain on site, but "disappeared twice." He
said no protocols were broken. Eyewitnesses claimed
Philip was put out of the hospital.
Ameen told the Senate, "The jury's out on the
matter. This pensioner died on the hospital grounds

yet there are conflicting reports from the
public and minister---the public must judge
who's telling the truth."
Ameen also rejected Senator Franklin
Khan's call for a Joint Select Committee
comprising Government, Opposition
and independent senators to consider
the Winston Welch committee's reports
on Health Care Delivery, regional health
authorities and to rationalise the system
of public sector doctors in private practice.
Khan said there'd been a clamour for
JSCs and this was an opportunity to par-
Ameen said Parliament's job was to
formulate legislation and hold the Gov-
ernment to account on spending, while the
Cabinet is the entity to formulate policy.
She said the Government was abdicat-
ing its responsibility of doing the latter by
seeking JSC deliberation on the reports.
Ameen added: "You're in charge, but
you're yet to take charge. The Cabinet
should do its work on these reports. If Gov-
ernment wants us to be part of policy-mak-
ing, resign and call a general election!"
She said Government was trying to
have the controversial issue of public sec-
tor doctors working in the private sector,
handled by a JSC. But she said Government
was the one which must decide on that.
