JLP Caretaker for South West St. Elizabeth, Floyd Green, is calling for the intervention of Agriculture Minister, Derrick Kellier, to address the severe shortage of irrigated water in the constituency.

Mr. Green says he has been informed that the National Irrigation Commission, NIC, has been unable to meet its obligations to farmers in the area.

Mr. Green is calling on Minister Kellier to ensure that the CEO of the NIC, Dr. Mark Richards, is held to account.
