Speaking to Penguin News from London MLA Cheek said: "I felt the meetings went well and we participated in all sessions. The visit to No 10 was very pleasant and began with the walk up the staircase lined with photographs of past Prime Ministers."

They were then joined by the Prime Minister for tea and, "he made a point of speaking to everyone and is clearly well briefed on the issues affecting each territory."
