Statement by Honourable Vincent Wheatley: Bans on TBTs, Sun Tan Lotions and Sewage Dumping

Friday, 10 July 2020 - 2:04pm

Mr. Speaker, our tourism sector relies on the presence of pristine waters which sustains our ability to recreate and to provide fish, which forms part of our food security framework. Crystal clear waters allow for our reefs to thrive, as countless residents and visitors enjoy the same. However, Mr. Speaker, our coastal waters, more than ever, requires continued attention and focus. The prevalence of various diseases impacting reefs, storm water runoff which may carry large amounts of sediment from the land and the discharge of pollutants into the waters threaten the survivability of reefs and other marine ecosystems that support our livelihoods and lives. Sometimes, individuals may feel helpless in their ability to positively contribute to the protection of our coastal resources.

Good morning to all,

It feels as though a lot has changed since we last met in May. BVI has sprung back to life with many businesses re-opening and friends and family coming together again, though still from a safe social distance. We’ve made progress in preventing COVID-19 taking hold here, but we cannot become complacent.

Statement by Honourable Kye Rymer At House of Assembly: Ministry Updates

Tuesday, 30 June 2020 - 11:41am

Mister Speaker, when I last updated this honorable house, I mentioned that the first shipment of the new Ultrasonic meters for distribution to customers had arrived and was in the possession of the Water and Sewerage Department. The Department is now in the final stage of preparations to commence installation within the coming week. The Department currently has a waiting list of customers who have paid all fees and is awaiting connection; these customers will be given priority. I take this opportunity to thank them for their patience and to apologize for the inconvenience that was caused by this delay.
