Nelson’s fate up to Bajans
The controversial statue of Lord Nelson may be moved to a maritime museum, but not before a public consultation on the matter.

However, she stressed that National Heroes Square should be a place for Barbadian heroes.
“I would strongly encourage Barbados to follow me on this issue when we have the conversation [because] I, like you, believe National Heroes Square should be the home of a national hero of Barbados.
“I, like you, believe we will be in a better position . . . but the Government is not going to definitively state a position without a consultation,” she added. (TG)
