PNP wants parliamentary debate on LNG

A day after renewing its call for details of a report on the feasibility of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to be made public, the Peoples’ National Party (PNP) is now calling for a parliamentary debate on the matter.

Although the LNG project has been removed from his portfolio, minister with responsibility for energy James Robertson has been quoted as saying the report is not to be made public.

Opposition spokesman on energy Philip Paulwell said he finds that comment unacceptable.

He believes the LNG project warrants a debate in parliament.

Paulwell also wants details on the deal between the government and Exmar Consortium which has been selected to play a lead role in the project.
