Turks and Caicos, April 20, 2017 – Grand Turk – Opposition Member Royal Robinson knocked the PDM government’s first budget, calling it lip service to the Turks and Caicos people.
In his contribution to the Budget Debate, Robinson questioned the amounts of $450,000 set aside for the Health sector, an amount he says should have been atleast $600,000. He added that Health issues such as diabetes needed serious attention, and that more was needed in the combat against mosquito borne diseases. Robinson told the house that the TCI people got a six for a nine in voting them into government. He added that the Agriculture sector, also received lowered amounts than previous budget allocations.
The PNP member went on to dismiss the Government’s 12 Point Crime plan, calling on the PDM to provide solutions to the current crime situation. Meanwhile, Robinson called out the Premier on her description of him as the “Destructive New, new PNP”, saying he was only doing the job his party had put him there to do, and that he was far from destructive.
