Speaker of the House of Representatives  Marisa Dalrymple Philibert says that embattled Westmoreland Central Member of Parliament George Wright will not be allowed to sit with the Jamaica Labour Party Government caucus in Gordon House.

In a joint statement from women in parliament on violence against women this afternoon, Dalrymple Philibert said that Wright was no longer under government control.
