DON’T EXPECT WILD SPENDING if Barbados gets a windfall from its offshore oil exploration programme.
Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, Senator Jepter Ince, offered this bit of advice after delivering the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) weekly lecture yesterday.

“It is not going to be a free-for-all – live as you like because the country got a lot of money.
