Deputy House Speaker urges PNP Administration to get economy moving

Providenciales, 19 Oct 2015 – The PNP Administration was called on to move faster and get the economy back on its feet by Deputy House Speaker and At Large Member from the PDM, Hon Josephine Connolly.

During a very brief opening contribution in the House of Assembly last week, Connolly said it was concerning to her that so many residents still appear to be in financial crisis.

“And when I checked the notice board Mr. Speaker, there is a list of 54 people who are about to lose their houses, 54. Mr. Speaker I have it in my hand, I can lay it on the table. But Mr. Speaker I say this to say that I think it is something that our government needs to look into and it is my hope that they speed up the process in getting this economy going so that our people can get jobs and pay their bills and so that they can have a comfortable life.”

Reports to Magnetic Media mirror some social media remarks that, financially, it is still tough for many in the Turks and Caicos and that many people are uprooting and moving out of the country with a popular new home destination being, the UK.
