Statement From the Office of the National Chairman
Progress Liberal Party
On Job Losses and the Banking Sector.
Commenting on the continuing job losses and in
particular the banking sector generally, PLP National Chairman Senator
Fred Mitchell had this to say:
is always dreadful when men and women lose their jobs. It is an
unfortunate pattern so far in this administration - job losses after job
losses. The (FNM) administration thinks too often of stats and figures
and not enough about people.
doubt the Government is bound to explain fully and frankly its strategy
with regard to the Bank at a time of retrenchment in the availability
of banking services in communities that are unbanked or under banked.
PLP is expecting to move shortly through its Council to provide some
policy guidelines on these developments in the banking sector including
issues such as Labour retrenchment, banking fees and the services that
are no longer offered in far flung communities. Our concern is always
the fate of our people."
