PN opposes TM’s Ta’ Xbiex offices and restaurant proposal

PN opposes TM’s Ta’ Xbiex offices and restaurant proposal
Aug 28 2022 Share

The Nationalist Party has expressed its opposition to Transport Malta’s application to build offices and a large restaurant on the shore of Ta’ Xbiex. 

This, the party said, is a threat to public open spaces which are already becoming scarce for all residents. PN MPs Rebekah Cilia, Janice Chetcuti and Stanley Zammit represented the party in saying that this is yet another case of a threat to open spaces. 

The spokespersons for the Opposition said that were this development to take place, it would block access to the bay as well as making the traffic and parking issue worse in area. 

The PN appealed to the authorities involved to repeal this project and leave the area open so that residents and the public can enjoy it.

Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne took to social media to announce that 100 new nurses will be starting to give their services to government hospitals as of next week.

This news follows the recent red flags raised about nurse resignations continuing to pose problems as shortages endangered the lives of patients but also burnt out medical workers. 

The Malta Union of Midwives and Nurses spoke out several times in regards to this issue, calling on the health authorities to address the issue for the safety of both patients and workers and to make sure that the rights of all are being safeguarded. 

More than 120 nurses left their job at Mater Dei in 2021, and the figures for the first three months of 2022 indicated that the exodus could only continue. This new regiment of nurses will surely act as a breath of fresh air for many nurses exclaiming exhaustion, but many are still calling on the government to find a solution to keep nurses from leaving their post and finding better employment elsewhere.

The persons involved cared for the turtle as they awaited professional help to arrive on the scene. Some could be seen removing potential hazards and even keeping the turtle wet with sea water as they awaited further instruction. 

Well done to all those who stepped up to help the marine animal stay safe!
