PM gets report

pmgetsthereportPrime Minister Freundel Stuart was formally presented with a copy of the final report of the Country Assessment of Living Conditions Study today and has promised that Government “will make effective use of the evidence contained in it to guide policy”.

“A government that is not interested in conditions under which people have to [live], especially the homeless [and] vulnerable elements in society, is of course a government whose overall remit is under question,” Stuart said.

“I want to assure you that we take very seriously the interest of the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalised in society.

“This report is bound to provide the kind of information we need to guide us in terms of sensible and potentially effective policy issues.”
