No rash moves

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler met with the full Social Partnership yesterday for almost five hours.
And Stuart has promised Barbadians that Government will not adopt any short, sharp response to the challenges being faced by the Barbados economy.
It was the latest in a series of pre-Budget meetings the two have held with the major stakeholders, coming out of a national consultation last month.
“I am not reckless. We will make the decisions we have to make, but within the context of proper consultation, taking into account the vulnerabilities of our households, the fragility of our businesses and of course the challenges faced by the Government, in terms of the need to provide certain basic amenities in the areas of health, education, sanitation, water, law and order, and so on, for the people of this country,” the Prime Minister said.
