Prime Minister Andrew Holness says a Parliamentary oversight committee for the Integrity Commission could be established by next week.

He was responding to a call from Opposition Leader, Dr Peter Phillips, for the establishment of an oversight body for the Commission.

Prime Minister Holness says he has directed Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives, Karl Samuda, to begin consultations with a view to selecting the members of that parliamentary oversight committee.
