increasing volume of ships

Legislation may be passed for Jomat Passage in Milne Bay

He said this in Parliament today when responding to Milne Bay Governor, Titus Philemon, who raised several questions relating to the sea passage.

Governor Philemon asked the Government if they were aware of the increasing volume of ships using the passage, especially from Australia and New Zealand, as a cheap route for exporting purposes.

He said the passage was home to diverse marine life and the increasing activity may affect it as the people depended on the passage as well  for a living as well as for small scale commercial means.
