More Questions than Answers – But For a Little Information

Editor,

Information on this island is sadly lacking, hence we need an FOI (Freedom of Information)  clause added to our Constitution Order.

This is not an exhaustive list but it is a start. Drilling of the 3rd well, contract award date has been set back until mid-Jan 2016. Why no mention of this to the people? Power station. contract completion summer 2015. We have the engine alternator and concrete hard standing BUT nothing else. Why has MUL not told the people when completion will be? Design and manufacture of purpose built ferry. DFID UK have put out details on their site BUT it is difficult to access. Why do we need a purpose built unit? There are plenty of suitable units about and what does the spec say? Fibre Optic cable DFID EME but no further info. Why? Hospital project. The Minister said the business case would be done by June 2015. Now it is 2016, why the delay? Why are they looking at six sites when DFID refused to countenance a “Greenfield Site”? Is it Sour Grapes regarding the design put forward by the previous administration? (Who’s great mind is advocating Little Bay)? Remember Gerald’s Airport! This is not a fashion show. Emergency Ambulance why is it NOT on site on call and in service? New procurement regulations: DFID Rep said that they would be here in third quarter 2015, where are they, why the delay? It was also said that they would be agreed by April 2016 . It is imperative that a draft of these rules be made available to the people for comment as they will be involved and the beneficiary in their use WHY THE DELAY? I am sure that there are other items that should be on the list.

Note – The above queries were submitted since mid-September last year, but have only now come to light. They are presented especially that the observations and questions are still not answered
