writes PM

on problem
A LETTER with a $1000
problem has been posted to
Prime Minister, Dr. Eric
Williams.
Gladstone Cuffe 21, of
Southern Main Road, McBean
Village, ,pouva, wrote Dr.
Williams two days ago, asking
that he use his office to have
Trinidad and Tobago
Electricity Commission
(TTEC) compensate hbin for
the destruction of his one-
year-old television set.
Mr. Cuffie, a clerk at
Workers' Bank, who sent
copies of the letter to the
ombudsmanand the Chairman
of TTEC, wrote the Prime
Minister, saying that while
viewing television on Satur-
.day last, it suddenly went off.
He added:
"When we checked the light
bulbs, we realized that there
was no electric current.
"Quick action saved our
home and other appliances,
but my new television, which
is not even a year-old, was
destroyed. I don't think it is
justice for me to buy another
tv out of my small packet.
"I am, therefore, asking you
to use your office and have
the electric company, or who-
ever is responsible, to send me
a cheque for one thousand
dollars for its replacement"
