After several calls for the removal of vat on medications here, Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony has assured that St Lucians will be able to realize a drop in prices on pharmaceuticals.

Dr Anthony says since the introduction of the Value Added Tax system here, the government applied to Caricom for a waiver of duties on some construction items and medication.

He says had the government not made such an application, the cost of medication would have been much higher than it is now.

Dr Anthony says the real test is over time when St Lucians will begin to see a decline in the cost of medication.
