Accidents near police boundary unacceptable - Joseph Muscat
People falling off police depot’s boundary walls is unacceptable, PL Leader Joseph Muscat said tonight during a political activity in Birkirkara, adding that CCTV cameras will be installed.
The PL Leader described the need for interrogations to be recorded, adding that the police seem to be in agreement over the matter.
Dr Muscat described his proposal to unionise the police and Civil Protection Department, excluding the right to strike. He further stated that Disciplinary Corp members working extra duty will be taxed 15% rather than the full rate.
The PL Leader spoke about Church schools, explaining that they would be granted full autonomy in their operations and in running curriculum. He announced that the PL are trying to emphasise the party’s trust in the Church.
Dr Muscat emphasised that environment NGO’s will be granted more powers, and that NGO’s will be given access to a research fund for environmental issues. Joseph Muscat added that Enforcement Impact Assessment will be given further importance.
Referring to the PN Deputy Leader Simon Busuttil’s comment earlier today, who said that patients would not need to pay for medicine, Joseph Muscat explained that the PN has reversed its position as originally the PN had argued that patients would only be paid the price which Government would have paid. Labour have been stating that this would have resulted in patients paying for medicine as the price Government pays is less than buying from a private pharmacy.
Concluding, the Opposition leader announced that hunting classified as illegal today, will remain illegal tomorrow, insisting that the law will be respected at all times.
