drug shortageThe budget debate is underway and one opposition MP is today claiming that cancer patients in this country are still not receiving crucial drugs required for treatment.

In his contribution in the parliament last night, Princes Town MP, Barry Padarath said he has been getting correspondence from patients regarding the unavailability.

He accused the PNM government of not taking the matter seriously.


News Power Now contacted Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh for a comment on the matter and he would only say that he plans to comprehensively respond to MP Padarath.
