“FAA ASK WHY SAFETY CONCERNS AT MAJJISTRAL PARK ARE NOT BEING ADDRESSED”

Flimkien ghal Ambjent Ahjar asks why increased safety concerns at the Majjistral Park have not been addressed.The extension of hunting hours has brought about a greater risk of incidents such as that which recently took place in Maghtab, where a much-loved family pet was shot and eventually died due to shot gun wounds. With a greater concentration of hunters in the vicinity of visitors to the park, many of them children, there is a greater possibility of similar occurrences.

In this regard FAA has filed a Freedom of Information request asking for a copy of the Impact Assessment Framework for Subsidiary Legislation completed by the Ministry before the publication of the legal notice extending the hunting and trapping hours at the park. This form must be compiled before any subsidiary legislation is enacted. It should include a description of the environmental, social and other impacts that the proposed legislation is expected to have. FAA asked “Were the risks correctly assessed in this form? Or was it not compiled at all?”
