Council take Government to court

It has been a long established fact that Barbudans contribute substantially to the twin-island state economy and was confirmed when Peter Hill, an economist working with Council, looked at and compared the figures (our cost of living) and effectively argued our case. This ‘tax’ comes back to Barbudans as a subvention – although it has always had to be fought for. This time it will have to be fought in yet another court case.
