2017-07-16 Barbados Today facebook page – St James North residents in self help

“Dissatisfied with excuses offered by Government ministries when residents of his St James North constituency request assistance for road, drainage or other infrastructural works Member of Parliament Edmund Hinkson today led a group of volunteers in cleaning up the Sion Hill Community Centre. Speaking to Barbados TODAY as residents along with trainees of his Clarkson Foundation Development Organisation painted the Community Centre’s pavilion, the St James North MP pointed out that Barbadians pay on average 45 per cent of their income in direct and indirect taxes and asked why is Government not channeling some of this money to badly needed infrastructural work.”
