ERA to con­sider PN leader’s re­quest to ex­tend con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod on LNG risk re­ports

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The En­vi­ron­ment Re­sources Au­thor­ity will be dis­cussing the re­quest made by Op­po­si­tion leader Si­mon Busut­til for an ex­ten­sion to the pe­riod of con­sul­ta­tion fol­low­ing the pub­li­ca­tion of risk as­sess­ment re­ports about the pres­ence of the LNG tanker in Marsaxlokk Bay.

The ERA said it is look­ing into the le­gal im­pli­ca­tions of such a re­quest.

Dr Busut­til had re­quested the ex­ten­sion be­cause the party said the 30-day dead­line is not enough for the re­ports, which con­tain thou­sands of pages, to be an­a­lysed in de­tail.
