Malta news: Authority gas distributors
Party financing loopholes tailored for PN donors, says Labour
Nationalist MP Franco Debono says he made no distinction between party and non-party members in original draft. The Labour party said it does not agree with a party financing law that will distinguish between donors who are party members and who are not, if they are to be named publicly. "The draft which government seems to be proposing to regulate party financing consciously creates loopholes," the PL said in a statement, referring to MaltaToday's report on the draft law scrutinised by the Council of Europe. "The Labour Party does not agree with the distinction between party and non-party members, which is clearly a strategic loophole tailored to fit particular individuals, some of which can be easily found by going through a Yellow Pages directory," the party said, in a sarcastic reference to claims by BWSC middleman Joe Mizzi to the parliamentary accounts committee, that he elected Vassallo Builders Group to BWSC agents for the Delimara power station extension by picking them out of the Yellow Pages.(maltatoday.com.mt)

Authority says gas distributors' price increase not approved
The Malta Resources Authority has said it did not approve an arbitrary price increase in gas cylinders by independent distributors, which was yesterday called into question by LPG bottlers Liquigas. The MRA said distributors are obliged to sell the LPG at prices established by Liquigas, and that since they act as agents of Liquigas the must maintain the prices issued by the company. "As agents of the operators the fixed commission paid to distributors must be agreed and approved by the operator as was the case when the pricing mechanism was approved by the authority," the MRA said in a statement. The Chamber of SMEs (GRTU) is claiming distributors are within their right to increase prices to cover increased costs, and that this is within a pricing mechanism approved by the MRA.(maltatoday.com.mt)
