Share post:

Government is putting money where its promises are and has set aside $4 million for the restart of the St John Polyclinic, whose construction was delayed 15 years.
Minister of Finance, Chris Sinckler revealed yesterday that Government was in negotiations with the contractor and financier to complete construction of the controversial polyclinic before the end of next year.
Speaking during the first day of debate in the Lower House on the Estimates of Income and Expenditure for 2011-12, the St Michael North West Member of Parliament said he hoped to be alive to see the health care institution opened after “?years of spitefulness by the Barbados Labour Party”.
