Ms Panades interviews UK Chief Negotiator of Cayman’s fiscal responsibility

On 19th July, Ms Panades interviewed Lord Bellingham, former UK Parliament Minister for the Overseas Territories.

Lord Bellingham was the UK lead negotiator of the frameworks for fiscal responsibility.

These are laws that restrict government’s ability to accumulate debt.

This is so that government finances can be stable in the long term.

Lord Bellingham and Ms Panades discussed the negotiations between the UK and the overseas territories.

Findings from the interview will inform Ms Panades’ current research on British management of political and financial scandal in British Overseas Territories.

Lord Bellingham was Minister for the overseas territories under the Conservative government of David Cameron.

Under his watch, the 2012 White Paper on overseas territories was published.

This document has influenced the relationships between the UK and the overseas territories greatly.

The White Paper remains the most updated governmental paper on the subject.

Ms Panades is grateful to the Portfolio of Legal Affairs and the wider civil service in facilitating this cycle of interviews in London.

This is further evidence of the Cayman Islands Government commitment for the advancement of Caymanian scholarship.
