Jones: We must reach the people


Added 28 January 2013


The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) must do more in relation to engaging the people, according to Member of Parliament (MP) for Christ Church East Central Ronald Jones. The DLP MP was speaking to the media on Saturday during a mass canvass of the Wotton and Kingsland districts in his constituency. Jones said the public might not always scrutinize what the Government had done for it on a wider scale so it was necessary to take the message to the people. “The unthinking person might not necessarily work right through what the Government of the day has done to maintain political and economic stability in Barbados,” he said.
