Sir Frederick: Cut Cabinet
FORMER GOVERNMENT MINISTER Sir Frederick Smith has called on Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to drop at least one minister from his Cabinet.
The 89-year-old former Attorney General also suggests Stuart should “interact more” with Barbadians, letting them know what he is doing to get Barbados out of economic and other troubles and why.
He made the suggestions yesterday while delivering the weekly Democratic Labour Party (DLP) lunchtime lecture – The DLP As A Party And Government And Its Relevance To Barbados And The Caribbean – at party headquarters in Belleville, St Michael.
Suggesting Stuart should reduce the ministers “by one”, he said there were some professional people who “won’t suffer” if they were axed from Cabinet.
