Issue of pensions must be fairly resolved, says Mottley
THE OPPOSITION would have happily supported the Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2016 if Government had attempted to operate fairly across the board, said Mia Mottley.
The Opposition leader told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday at the annual “Day Of National Significance” in Golden Square, The City, that it was unfair to treat the posts of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and Auditor General differently.
“If the Government had given a public commitment on the floor of the House to resolve the problems of the potentially thousands of statutory board employees, we would have supported the two but in the absence of that, we are not going to agree that you should make grounds for a ‘two few’ and leave the rest out.
“You cannot have a seamless route to extend the pensions of two people and leave thousands out to sea,” she said. (CA)
