Lathbury Sports Complex should be completed 'very early this summer', says Linares

The Lathbury Sports Complex should be completed "very early this summer", according to the Minister for Sport, who earlier this year stated that this would be completed in June, over three years since the original date. In his Budget speech, Steven Linares thanked the Amateur Athletics Association for its patience and understanding.

In his capacity as Minister for Industrial Relations, Steven Linares said significant progress had been made on the development of a Public Service Code to replace Government General Orders, with the aim of implementation within this calendar year, after consultation with the unions.

As Minister for Housing, Mr Linares said £680,000 had been collected since the 1st April 2021 as the result of arrears agreements. The total arrears figure is nearly £4.4 million. The Housing Department has made 158 allocations since last April, with a total of 412 housing applications received since then. Mr Linares said a review of the Housing Act will be concluded by the end of the year.
