Local rice distributor in Barbados,  Lionel C. Hill is up in arms on the Government failure to meet with them  regarding the removal of import duties on bulk rice.

Hill chairman of the company and his son , managing director Richard Ashby issued an ultimatum to Government to meet with them in seven days, failing that the company will have no choice but to dismiss 17 workers in the rice production area.
