Denny says Govt should not buy property

NSTEAD OF GOVERNMENT INTENDING to spend an estimated $8 million of tax payers’ money to buy part of Drax Hall Plantation in St George, the land owners should be making reparation to the people of Barbados and the development of the parish.

That is the view of David Denny, general secretary of the Caribbean Movement for Peace and Integration, who was reacting to the news out of England about the proposed sale, saying he “will object to the Government of Barbados’ position in terms of using taxpayers’ money to acquire this property”.

“This property must be given to the people of Barbados by Richard Drax as part of our reparation call,” Denny told the DAILY NATION.

“This really was the belly of slavery in Barbados. Everything evolves from the Drax Hall plantation.” (SAT)
