Opposition walks out of parliament
Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley was due to address the media at 11 a.m, after leading a walkout of Barbados Labour Party members of parliament this morning.
The move came at the start of the day’s sitting after House Speaker Michael Carrington rejected an Opposition resolution on the state-owned Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).
The Speaker said, in his estimation, the matter had not reached a requisite standard to be treated as a matter of urgency.
It was then that Mottley led the walk out of Opposition members from the House of Assembly.
