Share post:

To, Minister of Transport, Works and Maintenance Dr William Duguid If there is wrongdoing in your ministry what is the procedure to take action against the culprits? Do you call in the police?

Is the matter referred to the trade unions?

Are the wrongdoers simply transferred to another department or ministry?

– Ole Talk To, Chairman of the Barbados Water Authority, Leodean Worrell Will you be giving out buckets and other containers in Redman’s Village?

Have you gone to see, meet and apologise to the BWA consumers for the hardships they are facing?

With the possibility of a drought this year can many other districts across Barbados expect dry taps?

Will these people’s water bills be adjusted?

How much will the batteries for these vehicles cost?

How well trained are the mechanics at UCAL to deal with electric buses?

What size are these electric vehicles?

Does this move to electric vehicles by the Transport Board an effort to replace the private sector?
