MP for St George South, Dwight Sutherland, wants a halt to housing development in the St George valley, and concessions granted to small farmers.
Speaking at a Barbados Labour party branch meeting last night, he pointed to current preparations in Lower Greys for construction of a number of housing units on an estimated two acres.
“That is an area that use to produce some good potatoes,” he said.
Additionally, he thinks small farmers should be given concessions similar to those given to some areas of the tourism sector.
“We can’t give all the concessions to [Sandals owner] Butch Stewart”, Sutherland said.
