The motion failed after going to vote with seven No’s, three Yes and three persons absent, despite an emotional closing plea from Hon Fraser to have the motion passed by legislators.
Following the failure of the motion, the house returned to the substantive motion for the appointment of Scatliffe-Boynes to act in the Director position for 6 more months based on the recommendation of the SSB Board.

Senior Legislator and Third District Representative, Hon Julian Fraser RA on August 26, 2021, moved a motion opposing the Government’s plans to have Mrs Jeanette Scatliffe-Boynes appointed as the Acting SSB Director for another six months, citing her experience as a factor.
