However, the Opposition People’s National Movement St Joseph Member of Parliament, Terrence Deyalsingh , suggested that the government should allow a Joint Select Committee to review the legislation.
He said there is also need for more factual details from the government surrounding moves to place a ban on drivers 18 to 25 between 12 am and 5am.
