first_imgRelatedWork Commences on Granville to Retirement Road in St. James Contact:    Communications Unit-OPM FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller,has called on the members of the Board of the National Housing Trust (NHT) to be far more aggressive in its pursuit of providing affordable housing solutions for NHT contributors. In a meeting with the members of the NHT Board on Thursday (September 6), the Prime Minister who also has Ministerial responsibility for the NHT, implored them to pay special attention to the young professionals, many of whom are unable to afford some of the houses now being built by the NHT. The Prime Minister also called on the Board members to be sensitive to the disabled community when housing solutions are built, by putting in the necessary features to comfortably accommodate those beneficiaries who are physically challenged. She also took the opportunity to remind the Board members of the raft of NHT related promises she made in her Budget presentation earlier this year and that she was looking for all these promises to become a reality within the timeframe outlined. Those promises include the construction of houses to be accessed by sugar workers and hotel workers. The Prime Minister further pointed out that the NHT was never established just to build housing solutions, but to create schemes with all the necessary features of modern communities, including working in collaboration with other agencies of the Government and the private sector, to provide amenities such as community centres, basic schools and playing areas.

NWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply

first_imgNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply EnvironmentApril 4, 2013 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The National Water Commission (NWC) has embarked on several measures to improve water delivery in the Negril area during the short term, and to develop additional sources within 18 months.This was announced by Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, while addressing hoteliers and other stakeholders at a function held at Breezes Negril, on April 3.The meeting was held by the Minister to outline strategies being employed by the NWC to alleviate the difficulties being experienced by residents and businesses during the drought affecting the island. One of the measures, the Minister said, is that the NWC is aggressively trying to deal with leaks as they are indentified on the system.Mr. Pickersgill said the NWC is also trying to ensure the effective implementation of a schedule, to ensure that all customers receive some water at least every other day for at least eight hours, and that the Commission is already paying $9 million monthly for the trucking of water, from which it recovers no revenue.“A new loading bay has been established along the Sheffield main road, to reduce the time, cost and difficulties involved in the legal trucking of water, and this is to be fully operational later this week,” the Minister informed.“We are appealing to persons not to support the illegal extraction of water from the system, as this practice is only making a bad situation worse. Furthermore, the quality of water delivered in trucks that are not known to have been sterilized, cannot be guaranteed,” he stated.Other measures to improve water supply in the Negril area are the addition of two Rapid Response trucks; and work currently taking place at the Great River Treatment Plant to get the facility to produce its maximum of 15 million gallons per day, to boost the Logwood system.The Minister said for the longer term, work will be done to expand the water production capacity of the Martha Brae Treatment Plant from 6 million gallons per day to 11 million, as part of the process of having more water on the North Coast to distribute westwards. “This project is scheduled to be completed in about 18 months,” he added.Mr. Pickersgill said that surveyors are currently working in the town of Lucea on preparatory works for an improved pipeline network through the town, to allow for water from the Great River Treatment Plant to come as far as Green Island, and for water from the Logwood Treatment Plant to be dedicated to serving Negril.By Garfield Angus, JIS reporter RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supplycenter_img RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply Advertisementslast_img read more

During the year it lost 254,000 mobile subscribers in its home market, ending December with a base of 13.4 million.Iliad set up shop in Italy in May 2018, with a strategy based on significantly undercutting rivals’ pricing. It claimed “outstanding commercial success” having secured 2.8 million subscribers by the end of the year.Overall net profit for 2018 was €330 million, down 18.5 per cent year-on-year. Revenue in France fell 2 per cent year-on-year to €4.8 billion, due primarily to a decline in takings from its landline division. In Italy revenue was €125 million, resulting in an operating loss in the country of €52 million.Iliad’s net debt at the end of the year was €4 billion, up from €2.5 billion at end-2017, with high capital expenditure costs recorded in Italy as it continues to construct its network.
