Bureaucracy to blame for closure scallop fishery
Bureaucracy, over the바카라 past several months, has been blamed in the closure of New Zealand’s scallop fishery.
Prime Minister John Key said the closures affected tens of thousands of jobs, and many were not yet back with the workers when the first reports of missing workers emerged.
He told a small town council meeting in Taranaki that the closures had not been caused by sabotage.
“I would point out that when you get into this business people sometimes get into difficult moments,” Mr Key said.
“Somebody could have been involved in that kind of sabotage to try to get around the system we use so we haven’t got the problem here.”
Mr Key said the Government would continue to support those affected.
“In the meantime there are still workers who have been affected,” he said.
“There are man우리카지노y others who have also been affected.”
Mr Key said a number of employees lost their jobs when scallop was shipped out of Taranaki.
“This is still the case but it is a very small number of employees,” he said.
“That’s why we are making sure that we protect their interests as much as we can.”
Fisheries minister Paul Fletcher said many jobs will stay in Taranaki where they were before the closures were announced.
“It’s a hard financial thing but we have managed to manage that very well,” Mr Fletcher said.
“We are not having to put out any more scallops because of the예스카지노 cost.”
Mr Fletcher says the fishing sector in Auckland is “well positioned” to weather a severe weather event such as climate change.
But he said a number of fishery sites were affected.
