The Right Honourable Dr. Denzil Douglas, Minister of Foreign Affairs et al. has thrown his full support behind the Public Health [Amendment} Bill, 2022, which was passed in the Federal Parliament on Thursday, October 27.

“I want to commend the Government of course, before us, for taking the initial steps by bringing the appropriate legislation, especially at the height of the [COVID-19] Pandemic because I think it was absolutely necessary, so to do,” said Minister Douglas. “But I think the point that is being made in repealing is that it should have been repealed before and I support the position that has been taken by the Mover of the Bill [Prime Minister, the Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew] that the science was there and there was no need to continue this prolongation of these restrictions on people’s rights because the time had passed when we believed that natural immunity of the population was already there and there was no need to prolong it in the way it did.”
