THE United National Congress (UNC) is criticising Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley's decision to take a weekend trip to Barbados amidst the controversy surrounding the inter-island seabridge.

Rowley left Trinidad on Friday and will return tomorrow.

Finance Minister Colm Imbert is acting as Prime Minister in his absence.
