Audit into Food Card program coming

The Minister of Social Development and Family Services is promising an audit into the alleged misallocation of food cards under the PP regime.
 
Additionally, Minister Cherry-Ann Crichlow-Cockburn says the biometric smart card programme will also have to be reviewed since it's deemed to be very expensive.
She said there has been a hemorrhaging of food cards during her contribution on Saturday in the House of Representatives.
 
The minister said the food cards will have to be collected at the Ministry.
 
Further the Lopinot Bon Air West Mm alleged that persons, who weren't in need of the food cards, received them.
 
With regards to the biometric food cards—the Minister added that over 30 million dollars are needed to maintain the cards.
 
The biometric smart card was launched July, 2015 and was designed to eliminate identity theft and prevent fraud.
 

Disruption in flight service in Jamaica

Caribbean Airlines is advising customers that several of its flights have been disrupted due to the disruption to Jamaica's air space.
 
Since Tuesday, air traffic controllers have restricted their operations, due to an ongoing dispute over equipment.
The dispute began last Tuesday and has continued now for over six days without agreement being reached.
 
According to the air traffic controllers in Jamaica - their gripe relates to working with out-dated equipment.
 
The Director General of the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority confirmed while the controllers have not taken industrial action per se, they have limited their services.
 
Management staff are said to be handling the operation of the airport for the time being.
 
Nari William-Singh also advised international passengers on Saturday that CAL flights originating from Toronto, Canada, New York and Florida to Jamaica had been severely disrupted.
 
The protest action comes at a trying time for the Caribbean airline, which is trying to achieve economies of scale and slim down its financial operating costs, as it competes with new carriers entering or expanding within the region, like Copa and Virgin Airlines, and British Airways.
 
Two weeks ago, CAL announced it is ending its service to London, from January - citing low passenger numbers.
 
The airline said it was concentrating on its North America routes and looking at Latin America also.
 
With the ongoing dispute affecting Jamaica’s air space, international flights are also being disrupted - with many passengers facing long delays.
