BLP brings QEH resolution

Social Share

THE OPPOSITION Barbados Labour Party (BLP) brought a parliamentary resolution condemning the Government today, calling for urgent discussion on the crisis at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) and stating that it was “a definite matter of urgent public importance”.
Speaker Michael Carrington then asked for a vote on whether the House should be adjourned to discuss the matter, and after members voted in favour of it, he overruled the strict 6:30 p.m. timeframe for the discussion and scheduled it for an earlier point in the post-lunch session.
Today’s sitting of the Lower House also featured the second reading of the Economic Partnership Agreement (between CARICOM, the Dominican Republic and the European Community) Bill 2013, introduced by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler. (RJ)
