The Code of Conduct and Register of Interests were developed by the Administration Committee of the Anguilla House of Assembly with support from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) through a Technical Assistance Programme. The motion, presented by Hon. Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers, acknowledged ‘the community’s expectations of high standards from their elected representatives as well as the desire of Members of this honourable House to enhance propriety and to strengthen the community’s trust in the Assembly’.
