25K set aside for Christmas Cheer in constituencies

We are thirty-three days away from the Christmas holiday and as per the annual tradition, the allocation of Christmas Cheer has been signed, sealed and if not delivered, it’s certainly on the way.  On Tuesday, November 6, a memorandum from the Ministry of Finance went out to the Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Human Development and Poverty Alleviation, notifying her that twenty-five thousand dollars is being allocated to sixteen electoral divisions.  Naturally, those divisions are those controlled by elected members of the Barrow administration.  The sum is for six hundred and fifty thousand dollars and that has been earmarked as the 2018 Christmas Cheer to assist residents with food and/or toys and has been categorized as social assistance under the Capital Three account of Government funds.
