Reyes questions on culture and sport
Opposition MP Edwin Reyes will this month be asking the Government 24 questions in Parliament. For Heritage, he will ask about training and whether the Government would consider waiving the entrance fees to the Gibraltar Museum in order to make Gibraltar heritage even more accessible to the general public. For Culture, questions about grants, the International Folklore Festival at the Prague Fair and the cost of the Jazz.
Festival will be asked, together with why the Gibraltar Fair was held on such a late date. In his responsibility for shadowing Youth Affairs, the Minister will be asked whether Youth Clubs will be opened at the weekends, as per the Government’s manifesto; and for Leisure, Mr Reyes will ask about the plans for the Government’s promised dog parks.
Sport and Housing take up most of Mr Reyes’ questions where the Minister responsible will be quizzed on the facilities for cricket and rugby at Europa Point, about sports grants generally, a list of all GSLA fixed bookings/allocations will be requested, what the Government is doing over the Gibraltar Olympic bid and about sponsorship of the Strongman Champions League. For Housing, the hot topic is the additional floors to Moorish Castle, Laguna and Glacis Estates. The Minister for Housing will be asked if he has met with any management committees of co-ownership estates and why no new employees have been engaged by the Housing Works Agency, replacing those who have left, as per the Government/Unite Union agreement.
