Chief Minister on Direct Democracy: “We must consider Abortion debate as a Party before thinking about legislation."

The subject of the Government’s education reforms took up a large part of the Chief Minister’s Direct Democracy session on Radio Gibraltar today.

Fabian Picardo said he had had no involvement in the decision to deny the Teachers’ Association use of school premises for Union work. He said however that he would make premises available for the Union if they needed it, even offering rooms at Number Six Convent Place.

Mr Picardo also responded on the abortion debate, saying the GSLP’s policy was to discuss these matters in party conferences and vote on them, before legislating as a Government.
