Mottley: Trim Cabinet, travel
GOVERNMENT SHOULD trim its Cabinet and limit ministers’ overseas travel to critical developments because of the country’s economic troubles.
These were among recommendations floated by Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley yesterday when she addressed the final 2013 luncheon of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
Addressing an estimated 300 people at Hilton Barbados, Mottley also said the Opposition could soon be asking Parliament to amend the Constitution to put brakes on Government’s spending against the backdrop of a huge gap between spending and revenue.
She charged too that a US$225 million loan approved by the House of Assembly last Tuesday night, would not be enough to close a gap in required Government financing.
