PM Barrow Responds to Julius on PBL

Dean Barrow

Prime Minister Dean Barrow, in responding to Espat, admits that while Waterloo has written to government informing of its intention to expand its docking facilities at the Port of Belize, he is not directly involved in any negotiations.  PM Barrow says that C.E.O. Audrey Wallace responded on his behalf to inform Waterloo that Cabinet’s investment subcommittee will grant them an audience for the presentation.

“But as to Waterloo and the Belize City port, sir let me make absolutely clear and to you, Madam Speaker, I am in no negotiations with Waterloo.  Man, man, hold on noh man.  I am in no negotiations.  Waterloo wrote to say that they have been in fact doing all sorts of tests, and by the way, how Ashcroft get fi own di port?  Da noh from unu?  Da noh from unu?  Da noh from the P.U.P.?  That da weh ih get it from, from the P.U.P.  Luke Espat, who unu give and who couldn’t pay the bill and so Ashcroft tek it.  So the Ashcroft-owned port is Ashcroft-owned because of the People’s United Party.  But anyway Madam Speaker, so these people are saying they want to improve the container port.  They want to actually turn the site into a bulk port and they also wish to, in fact, do an alongside docking facility for cruise ships.  The person who says that she’s in charge of Waterloo wrote to me to ask if they can come to meet with the Cabinet of this country to, in fact, make a presentation.  I did not even answer, my C.E.O. answered on my behalf after the matter had gone to Cabinet and Cabinet agreed that the investment subcommittee of the Cabinet would in fact give them a hearing.  That is where it stops, Madam Speaker.”
