Holness to Prioritize Water if Elected

63

Opposition Leader, Andrew Holness, says the next JLP administration will make it a priority to solve the country’s water woes.

Speaking at a JLP public meeting in Lionel Town, Clarendon last evening, Mr. Holness says it’s a shame that there are still so many communities across the island without piped water.

The country is still recovering from last year’s drought, which experts say is one of the worst in the country’s history.

Mr. Holness says based on his research, the country has enough water resources to supply the population, even amid a drought.

Mr. Holness says the growth strategy of the next JLP administration will be guided by a triangle of priorities, involving agriculture, housing and water.
