Contract for the running of events at the Botanic Gardens Theatre causes tense moments in Parliament

Published by GBC News

There were tense moments in Parliament when the Opposition brought up the granting of the contract for the running of events at the Botanic Gardens Theatre.

GSD Member Damon Bossino raised the fact there was a contractual arrangement with Wildlife Gibraltar Ltd and Apex Management, wholly owned by, and whose sole director is the Environment Minister's son, an employee of Gibraltar Cultural Services.

The Chief Minster intervened to say the question was out of order as it asked the Government about a company completely unrelated to it.

Mr Bossino argued it was a matter of public interest.

The exchanges were cut short by the Speaker who said she would not allow questions to turn into debates.
