He said that the parliament should not be made into a fortress and that we should strive for the parliament to be the highest institution of the country.

People should be kept close and not be prohibited from entering. He emphasised having security on a case by case basis when required but not having the parliament barricaded at all times.

‘I am fed up of listening, now I want to see! This report, which we worked so hard for, will not be permitted to be shelved.’

‘I do not want my son Jean Paul to have died for nothing and neither do I want to lose yet another dear individual to this bad system that is not being addressed in the construction industry.’

Recommendations In Public Inquiry Will Be Carried Out Says PM

Recommendations In Public Inquiry Will Be Carried Out Says PM
Feb 28 2024 Share

Prime Minister Robert Abela announced the formation of an interministerial committee led by Glenn Micallef, Head of the Secretariat at the Office of the Prime Minister, to oversee the implementation of 39 recommendations from the Public Inquiry Board. This decision came during a press conference at Castille Palace, where Abela introduced five initiatives aimed at enhancing citizen involvement in the construction sector.

These initiatives include offering free professional assistance, such as legal and technical expertise, to citizens, and expanding the role of the Environment and Planning Commission to cover the construction sector. Abela stressed the importance of increased enforcement efforts despite prior investment, leading to the creation of a centralized enforcement division and a construction helpline for citizen complaints.

Additional measures include the introduction of new health and safety legislation for construction sites by summer and the elimination of distinctions between standalone buildings and other structures. Abela reiterated that while the Board found no direct links between individuals, it expressed concerns regarding land allocation, prompting an audit of the allocation process. He also stated that he expected resignations from those implicated in the report by 4:30 p.m. as a demonstration of accountability.
