Barbados Labour Party To Introduce Integrity Legislation By 1976

Well, that's what the Barbados Labour Party promised in 1976…

THE 1976 MANIFESTO of the opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) proclaimed that it was ready to introduce integrity legislation to Barbados:

"We will pass legislation providing for Members of Parliament, senators, and politically-appointed members of statutory corporations to disclose their financial assets and liabilities on assuming office, periodically during office, and on termination.

"A code of proper conduct will be laid down for ministers, senior civil servants and political appointees to statutory corporations."
