Better vehicles for GAIA inspectors
Environmental health officers are being given two suitable and reliable vehicles to carry out their duties at the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA).

The officers had complained that the two vehicles which they had been using for over ten years were not in good working condition and had become unreliable.
As a result, they were walking back and forth to aircrafts in the sun and rain to carry out inspections and clearance, but this was taking a toll on them. (MB)
