London: THA operating with limited resources
Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly Orville London says Tobago is going through a challenging period of operating with limited resources. He said the $2.477 billion budgetary allocation to the island was half of what the THA requested to run Tobago in fiscal 2014 but administration is keeping its commitment to the people of Tobago that their quality of life will not deteriorate.
London said the Secretaries and Assistant Secretaries will report to the people of Tobago on the “real Tobago budget” at a plenary sitting of the THA on October 24 at 1.30 pm. He urged citizens to follow the presentations which will be carried live on television and radio.
Secretary of Health and Social Services Assemblyman Claudia Groome-Duke said the assembly had received insufficient funds for its caregivers’ programme and had to source funds from other areas to provide for the 120 people in the programme. She said there was a request for an additional 142 people. “Despite the shortfall, we have to take care of our people and nothing can stop us,” she said.
