Stuart: ‘We’ve done good for Barbados’
PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart said today that while the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) had not been perfect “we’ve done good for Barbados”.
According to Stuart, over the last 60 years Barbados had been able to make strides in several areas, including education, conditions of employment, succession rights for children born out of wedlock and protection against domestic violence because of the party’s “hindsight, insight and foresight”.
Stuart, who is president of the DLP, made the comments during a service at St Paul’s Anglican Church to launch celebrations of the party’s 60th anniversary.
At the service, the DLP gave awards to ten longstanding members – Doriel Green, Paula Jones, Michael Sobers, Decourcey Headley, Lionel Brewster, Phyllis Linton, Richard Matthews, Lance King, Gwendolyn White and Emmerson Jones. (TY)
