In the past the government of Barbados seems to have collected the required information but the financial statements on the government website have not been updated since 2013.

It is therefore not possible to say if the data exists or not, but given that it's two fiscal periods behind this gets marked as non-existing.

Reviewer comments

Submission fixed.

The government seems to have collected the information in the past and published in aggregated form but is two fiscal periods behind with no indication of collecting the data now.
