Get to work!
STRESSING?that the time has come for Government to turn up for work and lead this country, Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley says there must be a reconvening of Parliament with Barbados “in crisis”.
At a Press conference yesterday afternoon, Mottley said Prime Minister Freundel Stuart’s recent call for continued dialogue and assessments to be made on the impact of a ten per cent cut in the areas of temporary employees, substitutes and acting appointments, was a convenient way to hide the Government’s incompetence.
She said?Stuart’s stance was strange since circulars outlining the expenditure cuts had been delivered last month to every Government department by the Director of Finance and Economic Affairs and the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of the Civil Service.
“No Cabinet ought to approve any measure without understanding the real impact of the measure which it is introducing,” Mottley said.
