Amending vending laws
In recognition that vending has been the bedrock for thousands of Barbadian families, a new Barbados Labour Party government will amend the laws so as to stop unregulated vending from being a criminal activity.
The party accepts that there must be regulation, it said in its manifesto released tonight, “but this is an appropriate area for civil regulation – not a criminal conviction”.
The BLP manifesto pointed out that the party would work with the vending community to identify additional locations where its members could ply their trade. (NC)††
