Yearbook 1996

Antigua and Barbuda. According to, Prime Minister Lester Bird made changes to the government on May 14. He took over responsibility for communications after Robin Yearwood, who was instead given responsibility for the state companies, labor market policy and energy issues. Bird's decision to appoint his own brother, Vere Bird Jr, as a consultant on telecommunications, science, technology and information matters was highly controversial. The brother was forced to leave Parliament in 1990, when he was alleged to have been involved in illegal arms trafficking.
