Dear Sir

Re: Request for Installation of Electricity Pole in Brathwaites Road, Sion Hill, Saint James

I write this letter on behalf of my constituents in Brathwaites Road, Sion Hill, Saint James.

I hereby kindly request your Commission to use its good offices to request The Barbados Light & Power Co. Ltd. to install a functioning electricity pole in Brathwaites Road, Sion Hill, Saint James (the second-closest electricity pole thereto is numbered JDE396 and is situate to the east of this area). The residents complained that the area is very poorly lit and that at least one female has been attacked on the road in recent times.

You are of course free to contact me in the event that you require any further information or details in this regards.

Yours faithfully,
Edmund G. Hinkson, M.P.
Member of Parliament – St. James North
