Mr. Morris says this action, followed a directive from Director of Finance and Economic Affairs, Ian Carrington last Friday instructing the Accountant General on the approach that should be taken to restore the cancelled pension.

Mr. Morris says in July Prime Minister Mia Mottley intervened in the matter after considerable public criticism of how it had been handled.
