A RECENT SURVEY has deemed the River Van Stand as “deplorable”.
What’s more, Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley revealed that the report, which was conducted by the ministries of environment and health, stressed that it became an even greater danger to the public’s health each day it went uncorrected.
Lashley made the revelation yesterday as the House resumed debate on a resolution on the Barbados Green Scoping Study.
Given the fact that 121 vending operations were located in the stand, 67 of which sell food, Lashley argued: “We cannot turn a blind eye to the stand”, vowing that work to remedy the facility will begin in January. (SDB Media)
