Security issues were high on the agenda when Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry met with British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, His Excellency Mr. Duncan Taylor last Friday January 25th, 2008 at his Bath Plain Office.
In a press briefing shortly after the meeting Premier Parry described the meeting as favorable.
“I had a very good meeting with the British High Commissioner to Barbados.  We focused on security issues and I brought to his attention that we needed assistance with some of the problems we are having with our coast and coastal protection.
“The High Commissioner promised that he would get back to me and that someone would be coming to the region to discuss security issues and what can be done. It seems to be a priority of the British and they have been working with the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States over the past few years.  Their presence has been more in the Windward Islands and Antigua but I do believe they would be more active in St. Kitts and Nevis over the next year or two,” he said.
