Political Leader of the Independent Liberal Party, Rekha Ramjit

Reactions to the announcement by Finance Minister Colm Imbert that the list of zero rated items will be reduced to include only the most basic foods continue to pour in.

He made the announcement at the 12th sitting of the Parliament on Monday.

The items will now be subject to 12.5 percent VAT.

He said the list has been reduced to only include the most basic foods and other necessary items.
Political Leader of the Independent Liberal Party Rekha Ramjit revealed that one of the issues she had with the development was the fact that the Supermarket Association was not consulted.

She was speaking on the Power Breakfast Morning Show on Power 102.1fm today.

She disclosed that during the budget announcement that the People’s National Movement gave no indication that this would occur.

    I hope Jack Warner left some of his stolen millions to the ILP leader and his party. With this money the party can compensate the VAT on food items easily. Therefore if the ILP wants to get popular they should tell the citizen come to our party office and we will compensate your VAT bill. Of course the PNM administration does not have to consult the supermarket association or the taxi drivers association. They have to consult no association at all.
