Min­is­ter of Youth and Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment Al­lan Dou­glas, speak­ing at the open­ing of the new Op­er­a­tion Friend­ship work­shop at East Bell Road, In­dus­trial Es­tate, says that as long as he re­mains min­is­ter in charge of sport in Ja­maica, he will not see tax­pay­ers’ money wasted for send­ing ath­letes abroad when it can be bet­ter used for projects in western Kingston. “Gov­ern­ment will be will­ing to pro­vide funds for the nec­es­sary things, but in some cases funds, which are pro­vided are wasted”.

Prime Min­is­ter

Man­ley re­turns home from what he de­scribes as a very sat­is­fac­tory oneday visit to Venezuela. He for­mally dis­cussed with that coun­try’s pres­i­dent, Luis Her­rera Campins, bi­lat­eral eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal re­la­tions. It is clear, says Man­ley, that Venezuela is gen­uinely aware of the spe­cial prob­lems of oilimport­ing Third World coun­tries, par­tic­u­larly in re­la­tion to oil prices.
