Yesterday evening, Leader of the Opposition Daniel Feetham noted how saddened he was by the fact that the Gibraltar Trades Council has withdrawn a written invitation for him to speak at next week’s May Day Rally. Mr. Feetham described the withdrawal as scandalous. He explained that he originally received a written invitation on behalf of the Gibraltar Trades Council for him to speak for 10 minutes at the May Day Rally.
Earlier this week, Mr. Feetham met with a top union official who insisted that the Chief Minister had gone ‘ballistic’ when he found out that Mr. Feetham would also speak at the event. The union official in question, therefore, asked the Leader of the Opposition to withdraw as a speaker voluntarily because the Union had a number of issues which it was currently negotiating with the Government which it did not want to jeopardise.
Officers of Customs and the Royal Gibraltar Police this week attended an incident at Eastern Beach following reports that two men were seen acting suspiciously in the area.
A 29-year-old resident of San Roque and a 19 year old La Linea resident were arrested on the beach after being found in possession of a commercial quantity of cigarettes. An area search by the officers resulted in the detection of more cigarettes concealed amongst the rocks nearby.
Commander British Forces Commodore John Clink and Minister for Environment Dr John Cortes this week officially signed an Integrated Rural Management Plan (IRMP) that covers the whole of the MOD sites in Gibraltar including Buffadero Training Camp.
The MOD has been progressively developing an integrated management planning approach since 1995 and it is MOD policy to ensure that natural environment issues are fully integrated with operational and training requirements and highlighted safety issues.
