Leader of the Opposition and GSD Party Leader, Daniel Feetham, will be asking a wide range of questions at next Friday’s Question and Answer session ranging from the use of recruitment consultants to fill public service jobs to complaints by purchasers in the new affordable housing projects.
These are some of the areas on which the GSLP/Lib Government will be questioned on:
On BREXIT Daniel Feetham will ask the Government whether it intends to follow the example of Scotland and intervene in proceedings currently being litigated in the English Courts on whether the UK Government can lawfully use prerogative powers to give a notification under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union.
On the public service he will ask how many permanent and pensionable public servants are currently acting in posts across the public service and how many individuals under contract with recruitment consultants are currently covering posts which are vacant across the public service. He will also ask for an update as to the external recruitment of Administrative Assistants and details of those public servants who have retired whilst being temporary promoted by officer grade and the post.
On training he will ask how many individuals have actually been taken in for training at NVQ level 1 at the two training centres in each of the last four years.
On employment related issues he will ask how many Gibraltarians are currently employed at the Sunborn Hotel. Following on from questions in previous sessions as to whether the Sunborn Hotel had made repayments on the £30-40 million loan from Credit Finance Co Limited as and when they feel due, the Leader of the Opposition will want to know whether any of the capital has been repaid on that loan.
On the affordable homes, he will ask about complaints of defects from purchasers.
He will also ask whether the Government intends to reform sentencing laws for attempted murder in order to ensure that the law in Gibraltar is not more lenient than in England and Wales which is the position at the moment.Read More
