PP criticises 'Eileen' bunkering spill

Partido Popular (PP) in La Linea has called on the regional and the Spanish Government to adopt tighter controls to avoid any further bunkering spillages in the bay.

A PP spokesman said these spillages are detrimental to the environment and public health in the area, and said single-hull ships are banned by the EU and must not be allowed to sail in the bay.

Speaking about the recent Eileen spillage, the PP says Gibraltar must also adopt measures “to implement the appropriate EU legislation without shielding itself behind any special conditions to avoid doing so.”
