DLP ‘not meeting needs’

Social Share

Unemployment and rampant food prices are increasing because the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) administration is not being true to its mantra of building a society, says Deputy Leader of the Opposition Dale Marshall.
Speaking on the third day of debate on the 2011- 2012 Estimates in the House, Marshall said if the DLP were true to its mantra, then the Estimates would reflect it; but instead there was no encouragement in the proposals for entrepreneurs after 10 000 jobs had been lost in three years; while the cost of living was rising; people were paying major user fees for health care; and university education had become seriously imperilled.
“In all,” he said, “this Government has done nothing more than display reckless disregard for the needs of Barbadians.” (RJ)
