Estwick quiet for now
Outspoken senior Government minister Dr David Estwick has hinted to a specific day when he will speak publicly on his alternative economic plan, which he has presented to Cabinet for consideration.
Estwick had indicated recently he was still waiting on a response from Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Cabinet to his proposals, designed to restore growth and sustainable development to the country.
At the end of a tour of the Barbados Water Authority’s new headquarters in The Pine, St.Michael, this morning, Estwick was asked to comment on the programme he had presented to Cabinet, and the fact he was still awaiting word from the Prime Minister.
His response was: “I am not going to engage in that discussion at this particular point in time; that is for another controversial discussion . . . not this one this morning, I am very sorry.”
In his contribution to the 2014-2015 Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure over a week ago, Minister of Education Ronald Jones had said there were some aspects of Estwick proposals worthy of consideration, and that was what Cabinet was doing.
