PM: I bought a car too / The Op­po­si­tion and the me­dia took some heat on Sat­ur­day, as Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley blast­ed both for keep­ing the ar­gu­ment over tax ex­emp­tions for min­is­ters’ ve­hi­cles alive.

Row­ley de­fend­ed his min­is­ters’ right to pur­chase ve­hi­cles us­ing such ex­emp­tions, say­ing it was part of the agreed terms and con­di­tions of their job arrange­ments.

In fact, the Prime Min­is­ter said he too had used the fa­cil­i­ty to pur­chase a new ve­hi­cle.

Row­ley gave the re­sponse dur­ing the week­ly COVID-19 up­date, as he ad­dressed the re­cent con­tro­ver­sy in which En­er­gy Min­is­ter Stu­art Young and Health Min­is­ter Ter­rence Deyals­ingh were crit­i­cised for pur­chas­ing lux­u­ry ve­hi­cles us­ing the ex­emp­tions.
