THE George Town Council meeting was adjourned for 45 minutes yesterday for the second time this year while a man was ejected.
About half an hour into the meeting, Winston Archer was given an official warning by Mayor Roger Broomhall during public question time.
Mr Archer was asking Cr Broomhall to clarify his answer to Mr Archer's question, regarding a right to information request he submitted in August 2010.
Cr Broomhall told Mr Archer to take his seat; Mr Archer refused and requested a clarification once more.
The mayor then asked Mr Archer to leave the council chambers for the duration of the meeting and adjourned the meeting for 15 minutes.
During this time, more than a dozen members of the public were involved in heated debate with the councillors who remained in the chambers.
When the meeting resumed, Cr Broomhall said that Mr Archer had not left the chambers and adjourned the meeting for a further 30 minutes.
He said he would call the police to have Mr Archer ejected.
It is not known if the police were contacted.
Mr Archer left about halfway through the adjournment.
It is the second time Mr Archer, husband of Deputy Mayor Bridget Archer and son of former mayor Lawrence Archer, has been ejected from a George Town Council meeting this year.
At the council's meeting in May, he was escorted from the meeting by police for attempting to ask the same question during public question time.
That meeting was also adjourned for 45 minutes.
