Mem­ber ask­ing:- Collin Croal

Mem­ber an­swer­ing:Min­is­ter of Com­mu­ni­ties

Com­pen­sa­tion for losses ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing the MayJuly floods in the 10 Ad­min- is­tra­tive Re­gions

* Could the Min­is­ter of Com­mu­ni­ties, Hon. R. Bulkan, in­form this House as to whether the gov­ern­ment will com­pen­sate those who have suf­fered losses dur­ing the May- July floods which af­fected all 10 Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­gions and which led to loss of prop­erty, live­stock, and crops?

In par­tic­u­lar, what com­pen­sa­tion, if any, has been given to the res­i­dents in Re­gion No. 8 and Re­gion No. 9 whose houses were washed away or se­verely dam­aged and who also lost crops and live­stock?

What forms of as­sis­tance, if any, are be­ing given to the farm­ers in the most af­fected ar­eas who lost live­stock and crops to re­place these losses in or­der to al­low them in as short a time as pos­si­ble to re­turn to their liveli­hood?

How soon will the gov­ern­ment be ad­dress­ing dam­aged pub­lic in­fra­struc­ture such as schools, health cen­tres, roads, bridges and dams in these re­gions?
