PdP: Consult the people on same-sex issue
The People’s Party for Democracy and Development (PdP) wants the Mia Mottley administration to go back to the people.
In a press conference yesterday at the Opposition Leader’s office at Worthing, Christ Church, PdP spokesperson on law and governance, Maria Phillips, accused the Government of practising an agenda aimed at eventually legalising same-sex marriage in Barbados without a referendum being held.
Phillips, an attorney at law, said the PdP had no intention of preaching or promoting hate speech toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) community but noted the moral fabric of Barbados would be at risk if Government continued on its current path.
She said a clear example was the wording in the recently tabled Remote Employment Bill, which would allow visitors to Barbados to work here for a year. (BA)
