This weeks guest: Hon. Gregory Mair, Opposition ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy.

 Mr. Mair  has raised many questions and concerns about the Goat Islands. His motion (Feb. 2014) for the Goat Islands development matter to be referred to Parliament's Infrastructure and Physical Development Committee so that it could take the necessary steps to enquire into the benefits or losses that the nation could incur if any part of the Portland Bight Protected Area were to become part of the logistics hub.

  Mr. Mair also called on the Government to put on hold any final agreement with China Harbour Engineering Company for the development of a logistics hub until Parliament received and deliberated on the report from the Infrastructure and Development Committee.

  Mr. Mair expressed serious concern with the level of secrecy that has from the inception surrounded the Goat Islands matter and is expecting that in the name of transparency and good governance the issue be made public. To date Mr. Mair as well as the campagin await parliment to take up the matter. We will be asking about how he see's the currnet status of the proposed development, about the summation of Mr. Davies address's to Parlaiment about the proposed project..
