Executive Council met today, Tuesday 28 April 2015, with two items on the Open Agenda.

The Acting Governor welcomed the Honourable Cyril George to the meeting as a temporary Member of Executive Council, in the absence of the Honourable Derek Thomas who is currently on overseas business.

The first item was to seek approval for an amendment to the Water Regulations to create an offence where a person fails to comply with water restrictions imposed by the Utilities Provider in the event of a water shortage. This was approved by Executive Council.

For the second item, Executive Council approved the Coroners (Allowances, Fees and Expenses) and the Coroners (Investigations) Regulations, which will become effective from 1 May 2015.

It was noted that the Honourable Wilson Duncan and the Honourable Mrs Pamela Ward Pearce will depart the Island on Monday, 11 May 2015.  The Honourable Duncan will be attending the CPA 45th British Islands and Mediterranean Regional Conference in Cyprus and the Honourable Mrs Ward Pearce will be attending the Caribbean Regional Seminar in Managua, Nicaragua, which is being organised and funded by the United Nations.  Members wished them both a successful conference.
