KUWAIT CITY, Jan 13: MP Yousef Al-Fadala has sub­mit­ted a pro­posal to form a com­mit­tee con­sist­ing of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the min­istries of In­te­rior, Com­merce and In­dus­try and Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity to is­sue sea­sonal mar­ket li­censes in or­der to pre­vent blun­ders and com­pli­ca­tions that come with the is­suance of such li­censes through nor­mal chan­nels.

He ex­plained shops sell­ing lo­cal pro­duce and manned by na­tion­als are usu­ally es­tab­lished in pub­lic parks, beaches and other open spa­ces dur­ing win­ter. How­ever, the own­ers of these small and medium en­ter­prises of­ten ex­pe­ri­ence com­pli­ca­tions with var­i­ous au­thor­i­ties like the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity and Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try; hence, the need for the

com­mit­tee to sup­port these es­tab­lish­ments, he added.

Mean­while, notic­ing that street lights are on be­fore sun­set and off after sun­rise, MP Ad­nan Ab­dul­samad sub­mit­ted queries in this re­gard to the min­is­ter of elec­tric­ity and wa­ter. He asked about the sys­tem in turn­ing on and off such lights, why these lights are turned on and off very early with some lights be­ing turned on more than 15 min­utes be­fore sun­set, yearly cost of light­ing up high­ways and roads, and the cost per minute.

He re­quested the Min­istry of Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter to cal­cu­late sav­ings

if the street lights are turned on and off at a later time than the cur­rent prac­tice.

On the other hand, MP Mo­hammed Al-Dalaal sub­mit­ted queries to the min­is­ter of so­cial af­fairs and la­bor about sin­gle women who are above 40 years old. He wants to know the cur­rent num­ber of these women, their pro­fes­sional sta­tus, aca­demic back­ground, stud­ies on the dif­fi­cul­ties they face if any, and plans to im­prove their con­di­tions if any.

More­over, MP Mo­hammed Al-Hadiya sub­mit­ted queries on the nat­u­ral re­serves in the coun­try to the min­is­ter of pub­lic works. He clar­i­fied that this is in view of what the En­vi­ron­ment Pub­lic

Au­thor­ity (EPA) men­tioned in its web­site about nat­u­ral re­serves oc­cu­py­ing a large part of the Kuwaiti desert. He said the au­thor­ity pointed out this lim­its the space for graz­ing; con­sid­er­ing an­i­mals, shep­herds and the pub­lic in gen­eral are not al­lowed to en­ter nat­u­ral re­serves.

He in­quired about the num­ber of nat­u­ral re­serves in the coun­try, their names and rea­sons for choos­ing these par­tic­u­lar ar­eas. He wants to know if there were di­a­logues with other con­cerned au­thor­ity on this mat­ter. If yes, he re­quested for copies of these di­a­logues and rea­sons for clos­ing these re­serves to the pub­lic.
