10 Mar East Portland MP upset at debushing program in constituency
The Member of Parliament of East Portland, Dr. Lynvale Bloomfield and his constituents view with great alarm and deep consternation the resumption of the government de-bushing programme in the parish. The de-bushing aspect of the programme was discontinued late last year by the Prime Minister after coming under much pressure.
However, a contract was recently signed for six (6) million dollars in Kingston and work started without the knowledge and involvement of the Member of Parliament.
This involves work in the Blue Lagoon- Blue Hole area, guided by a Member of Parliament from another constituency.
We call upon the Prime Minister to immediately exert his moral and executive authority in stopping this travesty. This aberration flies in the face of the rule of law, due process and indeed our cherished democratic values. We look forward to a speedy intervention by the Government.
