Govt must ‘do better’


Share post:


That was the warning from Opposition Leader Mia Mottley to Government as she described its handling of issues as unsatisfactory.

Mottley spoke yesterday during a news conference held at the Opposition’s Office in Parliament Buildings where she vented about several matters, including doctors’ claims of shortages of supplies at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

“It is our contention that this reactionary approach to place a band-aid every time there is a protest, every time there is a crisis, cannot go forward any further because it is only the people of Barbados that are suffering . . . ,” Mottley said.

Using the hospital as an example, she complained that people could no longer rely on services “which they could close their eyes before and rely upon”.
