Opposition Spokesman for Health, Isobel Ellul-Hammond, has congratulated the students who recently graduated in Nursing and Paramedic Science. She said that this is the cohort of students who started their training in 2010 when the GSD was still in Government, a programme the GSD reintroduced in order to give locals the opportunity to train as nurses in Gibraltar.
In a statement on the effect of the recent amendments made by the Government to the Nature Protection Act, the GSD has called upon the Chief Minister to state publicly whether members of the La Linea and Algeciras fishing associations will have to apply for a licence in Gibraltar, or if they will be allowed to fish by virtue of their existing membership of their ‘Cofradias’.
The Government has extended the boundary of the Upper Rock Nature Reserve to coincide more closely with that of the Rock of Gibraltar Special Area of Conservation (SAC) designated under the EU Habitats Directive.
