THE BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY (BLP) is calling for the resignation of Education Minister Ronald Jones.

This was revealed in a statement read and issued today at a BLP Press conference called to discuss the educational policy of government, the controversy surrounding the bursaries promised by the government and Minister of Education Ronald Jones’ handling of such matters this morning.

The conference held in the BLP offices in the Parliament buildings was attended by Edmund Hinkson, Shadow Minister of Education and Human Resources, and former Opposition senator and Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Education Cynthia Forde, who is the Member of Parliament for St Thomas.

Forde, however, said she was not going to discuss in public any strategy about the call for Jones’ resignation.

“I am not prepared to speak on that issue of any minister’s resignation at this point in time,” she said. (JS)
