Fiji Sun - - Parliament - Edited by Naisa Koroi Feed­back: selita.bolanavanu­[email protected] fi­jisun.com.fj

1. Op­po­si­tion MP Ro Filipe Tui­sawau and At­tor­neyGen­eral Aiyaz SayedKhaiy­um.

Ro Filipe: Some of the price in­creases are un­man­age­able by the pub­lic. What is the Govern­ment do­ing apart from de­creas­ing the salary?

A-G: I think that the hon­ourable mem­ber, not that I think, I know that he has ac­tu­ally mis­led Par­lia­ment when he ac­tu­ally said that we’ve de­creased salaries, in fact it’s to the con­trary that Govern­ment has in­creased salaries for civil ser­vants some of them up to 80 per cent.

He does not know what is hap­pen­ing around him.

2. Op­po­si­tion MP Aseri Radro­dro in response to At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s min­is­te­rial state­ment.

What is EFL (En­ergy Fiji Lim­ited) giv­ing to the re­source own­ers? Of course, it’s giv­ing them peanuts, giv­ing them noth­ing.

3. Min­is­ter for Em­ploy­ment Parveen Bala and Op­po­si­tion MP Mikaele Leawere

Bala: For the last fi­nan­cial year, we have not re­ceived any labour non-compliance is­sue from any­one work­ing with for­eign film pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies in Fiji

Leawere: I tend to dis­agree with the hon­ourable min­is­ter in his response be­cause there are workers who have been ex­ploited by these for­eign film com­pa­nies, es­pe­cially the one that is film­ing in Pac Har­bour.

Bala: As I have men­tioned in my response, as far as the min­istry is con­cerned there have been no complaints re­ceived. But if there’s any complaints lodged to the Hon­ourable Min­is­ter’s of­fice in Serua and what he is op­er­at­ing, I would sug­gest that the com­plainant should come and give his re­port to our of­fice at Civic House, fourth floor.
