GSD Claim Government has Signalled a U-turn Policy for Future Job Strategy


According to a GSD statement this morning, the Opposition is claiming that the Government has signalled a U-turn policy for the Future Job Strategy, ‘with which it persuaded many people to vote for them at the recent General Election’.

The press release notes that, ‘It will be recalled that during the General Election the GSLP-Liberals promised in their manifesto that: “there will be from 1 February 2012, a new dedicated training strategy with a maximum of 3 years and a guaranteed full-time job on completion”. The scheme would be open to the unemployed, all vocational trainees, school leavers and residents on casual or supply labour.  At the time Mr. Bossano calculated that some 1,000 individuals were eligible.  People were then encouraged to go to GSLP headquarters to fill in GSLP membership forms and register for the Future Job Strategy. The GSLP/Liberal Alliance clearly gave the impression that this would be available to everyone as of right.

Gibraltar Politics - GSD accuse GSLP of treating parliament with disrespect

In a statement released on Friday, the GSD noted that they ‘[had] cause to express grave concern at the Government’s obstructiveness in the face of the Opposition’s questioning on numerous areas of Government policy’. One example that the GSD make note of is the new Comprehensive traffic plan that the Government are drawing up.

On this subject, the GSD explained that, whilst the Government stated they welcomed ‘involvement of all interested parties’ and looked forward to receiving the public’s comments on the plan, GSD opposition member, Damon Bossino asked Minister with responsibility for Traffic, Mr. Paul Balban, who the ‘interested parties were’ – Mr. Balban ‘refused to answer and limited himself to saying that he would advise Mr. Bossino who they are at the end of the consultation period. The Chief Minister then intervened and confirmed that there were indeed people who had been identified and would be consulted but that they would not give a full answer until the end of the consultation period’.
