Legislation critical

10/12/2011

THE time is ripe to put protective legislation on the statute books, which will help to retain our heritage and relics, preserving them for future generations.

So says Minister of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth, Stephen Lashley. He was speaking in the House of Assembly yesterday morning as he led off the debate on the Preservation of Antiquities and Relics Bill 2011 – the first session since the summer recess.

Lashley noted that there has been an increase in the incidence of trafficking of cultural goods and as such, he said, it is necessary that we in Barbados are proactive in terms of preserving our heritage.
