DAME BILLIE MILLER is “devastated” that areas such as Cat’s Castle and other depressed areas in The City have not been developed.
In an interview yesterday, the former long-serving Member of Parliament for The City with the Barbados Labour Party said she had personally fought for a $30 million loan from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) for a major restructuring project in The City which had been “allowed to die” by the current administration.
“Jobs and housing were the two things my constituents wanted and I was told, due to where Barbados figured in the bank’s statistics, we were never going to get a loan for housing, but I wouldn’t accept that and I went on fighting and fighting,” she said.
Dame Billie said she had personally taken members of the IDB through places such as New Orleans to show them why it was wise to have a sewerage system in the area.
