Sugar sector project ‘too large’

TWO FORMER Cabinet ministers have urged the Freundel Stuart Administration to consider scaling down its multimillion dollar sugar industry restructuring programme, saying conditions had changed too drastically.

Former attorney general Dale Marshall and former minister of state in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Kerrie Symmonds argued that the scope of the project was now too large, given the troubled state of the economy, Government’s parlous finances and the heavy debt it would impose on the country.

They voiced their concerns about the project while addressing a meeting of the St Joseph constituency branch of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) at St Bernard’s Primary School yesterday.
