Speech

Mr. President, It is indeed a humbling experience as I rise to participate in this State of the Nation Debate, particularly at a time when our nation and indeed the world is wrestling with this monster of a recession impacting on the lives of our people, particularly those below the poverty line who now find it increasingly difficult to survive.
Mr. President, the debate can be both instructive and encouraging. It can serve to demonstrate that members on both sides in this House, without exception, are earnest in their commitment to this country and to harmonious relations amongst its people. Regardless of our differences as political parties, I believe that we share a common goal, which is to make Jamaica a great country. We take all contributions to the debate in that spirit.
