Executive Council met today, Tuesday 20 January 2015, to consider three items on the Open Agenda.
The first item was a request to waive a Work Permit fee. Executive Council did not agree to the waiver and further agreed that the regulations requiring the need for ExCo to approve waivers should be reviewed.
The second item was an Information Paper related to the Undertakings and Resolutions made at the Formal meeting of Legislative Council held on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 December 2014.
The third item was an Information Paper on the recently revised Fuel Prices. The price reductions, effective from Tuesday 13 January, were noted and welcomed by ExCo.
Under Any Other Business it was agreed that the date of the forthcoming Bye-election would be Wednesday 4 March 2015.
On behalf of Legislative Council, ExCo strongly encourages members of the public with an interest in St Helena’s future and who think they can make a difference to stand for election in the March Bye-election. Further details will be issued shortly.
The meeting ended at 10.25am.
