The Minister for Equality, Social Services and the Elderly, Samantha Sacramento, has attended a meeting in London as a member of the Steering Committee of Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP). The CWP was founded by women delegates in 1989 in order that women could discuss ways to increase female representation in Parliament and work towards the mainstreaming of gender considerations in all Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) activities and programmes.
A Principal Auditor’s report, commissioned last year by the Government, regarding payments made by the Government to the OEM Group of Companies and Haymills (Gibraltar) Limited, was tabled in Parliament this morning.
The report follows a press release issued by the Gibraltar Government last year, suggesting that the former administration had made payments to OEM (International) Ltd (OEM) and Haymills (Gibraltar) Ltd (Haymills) in respect of a number of south district developments, that were used to pay creditors of the three developments. The Government repossessed the sites from the OEM group in December 2007.
