Special zones in Denham Town extended
The House of Representatives has approved extending the special zone in Denham Town in Kingston and in Mount Salem, St James.
In moving the resolution, yesterday afternoon, Prime Minister Andrew Holness said the resolution is needed as both zones will expire during the time Parliament will be on Christmas break.
The Mouth Salem zone will expire on December 15 while the Denham Town special zone comes to an end on December 29.
Both zones are to be extended for 60 days.
Last evening, West Central St James Member of Parliament, Marlene Malahoo Forte, said residents of her constituency, where the Mount Salem zone is located, are in favour of an extension.
