Statement to Parliament by Hon Robert Montague
There has been a debate surrounding the pre-owned motor vehicles policy and procurement.
Many of the contributors to the debate have formed their conclusions and opinions but they are not factual. I seek to provide the facts in order to be transparent and accountable to the Jamaican people.
First, the policy saw its birth by way of a manifesto commitment leading to the 2016 General Election (February 18, 2016).
This policy was deliberately designed to get more cars to the police using the same level of resources bearing in mind that the main constraints facing the economy have just now started to bear fruit.
