Madam Speaker, I am pleased to provide the House of Assembly with an update on the development of the Beach Management Plan for Long Bay, Beef Island, being led by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour. Since the first round of public consultations in March when the Conceptual Plan was presented for feedback, the Ministry has been working towards drafting the Detailed Beach Management Plan, taking into consideration feedback received during the consultations.

Madam Speaker, we live in a geographic location that grants us certain privileges which others must travel or relocate to experience. Our 60 islands and cays, to which we have ample access, are all surrounded by beautiful white sand. I also recognise that because sand is so readily available, persons may not just use it for their enjoyment, but also for other purposes and that is what I need to urgently address in this sitting.
