Taxation is natural, says Minister Wilfred Elrington

Parliamentarians are at this hour still debating the 2018/2019 budget. The second day of debate began with a lengthy presentation by Minister of Foreign Affairs and Pickstock Area Representative, Wilfred Elrington. Elrington focused on the need to emphasize efforts in providing quality education to at risk youths in order to reduce major crime in the country in the longer run.

According to Elrington, nineteen million eight hundred and fifty seven thousand one hundred and forty million dollars is allocated to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which is responsible for international corporation, protocol, foreign policy and representation, regional and international agencies and treaties among other obligations. He says that his Ministry is lacking its own building.

Elrington told the House of Representatives that for the past year, public officers under his Ministry saw no retrenchment. He said there was no problem with respect to the private sector accessing resource to import goods and services. The Minister said that the private sector produced an excessive amount of cash in the banking sector. This blocked any negative factor that would have impacted the performance of the economy and the life of the country in light of the reduction of revenues. He says that the application and increase of tax is a natural action taken by a country’s government.
