Government will host a national consultation on food prices involving members of the public and a large number of other stakeholders, Legal Affairs Minister Christine Kangaloo said yesterday.
Following up on a similar announcement made by Prime Minister Patrick Manning during his Tunapuna walkabout on Wednesday, Kangaloo said the consultation would be held on
August 15 to16 at Trinity College, east Trincity.
Manning will chair proceedings which would involve presentations by specially-invited stakeholders from both public and private sectors.
The consultation will also focus on views from the public on the issue as well as Government’s measures to contain rising food prices.
Participants include the Central Bank, University of the West Indies, Chambers of Commerce, Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), Tobago House of Assembly, Supermarkets Association, Manufacturers Association, Bankers Association, Retirees Association, representatives of labour, Dairy Association, Coterie of Social Workers, Association of Village and Community Councils, Fisheries Association and University of T&T.
Word of the consultation was first given by People’s National Movement officials in TG’s Public Affairs column last month. (GA)
Buh wey the mudder cont is this?
These dense fockers now realise food prices gone up ? In this eleventh hour before an election they want to have consultation? Wa the fock really goin on in this focking place. The fact that you want consultation wid the people is ah signal that as Minister of Consumer Affairs yuh is ah big fockin failure. Just like yuh fockin Minister of National Insecurity.
As a matter of fact all the focking ministries have failures.........from Education to Health. And now all yuh want to have consultation for the people to tell all yuh what to do.
All PNM niggas and niggas lovers like Christine Kangaloo should fockin resign and hand over the reigns to people who could do the fockin job.
Lazy mudders cont.
