OPPOSITION LEADER Mia Mottley led another walkout of her members from Parliament yesterday as she blasted the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) for seeking to restore the docked ten per cent of their salaries in light of the latest Central Bank report.
In fact, Mottley said the resolution, coming just hours after Central Bank Governor Dr DeLisle Worrell gave his outlook for the economy, could be seen by the thousands of public servants who had not received a raise in seven years, as an attempt by Government to feather its own nest.
“The Opposition will have nothing at all to do with this resolution . . . and if you see us leave the Chamber, it is no disrespect. We will not be in this Chamber for any vote with respect to this resolution,” she declared before leading her Barbados Labour Party (BLP) colleagues out of the Lower Chamber. (HLE)
