PRIME?MINISTER?FREUNDEL STUART says Government is linking with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) on a project that will deliver a comprehensive evaluation of the risks and vulnerabilities of Barbados to storm surges and tsunamis.
Stuart spoke about this country’s next phase of coastal conservation at Hastings Rocks, Christ Church, at a grand ceremony where the boardwalk on the South Coast was renamed after former Minister of Finance Sir Richard Haynes, a key figure in the Democratic Labour Party’s resounding 1986 general election triumph.
Before an audience that included Sir Richard and Lady Haynes; sons Richard and Kaska; Sir Louis Tull; members of Cabinet, including Minister of the Environment Denis Lowe; and entertainer Adrian Clarke, Stuart said: “Sir Richard Haynes has indeed made a sterling contribution and only the ungracious and the churlish would want to deny it.”
In a foreword on the programme, Sir Richard, who turns 76 in June, said the project was a welcome addition to those that had been completed and was an important response to the needs of the people.
