Doctors in Samoa were scheduled to meet the Prime Minister today to give their response to the Commission of Inquiry report into the strike.

Government doctors have been on strike for nearly 10 weeks.

Cabinet is supporting the Commission's 14 recommendations.

The meeting with the Medical Association was called after Parliament's sitting.

Included among the recommendations is to leave the starting salary of government doctors unchanged.
