The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Laura Tucker-Longsworth and a group of parliamentarians are experiencing another parliament, the Westminster Parliament in London. The Belize delegation has met with representatives of Tate and Lyle Sugars, toured the Thames Refinery, and participated in other activities. The parliamentarians have also been hosted by the Chair of All-Party Parliamentary Group on Belize in the Palace of Westminster and have met with the Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs Committee and the Home Affairs Select Committee of the UK Parliament. The purpose of the trip is to strengthen the bilateral parliamentary relationship between the National Assembly of Belize and the UK Parliament through a series of practical and diplomatic exchanges, focusing on areas of shared interest and developments in the international political landscapes. The trip is the first phase of several trips made possible through a CPA UK and CPA Belize Parliamentary Exchange Programme. The tour of Westminster Parliament commenced yesterday and will end on Thursday.
