Provincial Government

Provinces must create small craft boards: Tabar

Minister for Transport, Malakai Tabar, said it was the responsibility of each respective Provincial Government to establish the boards to coordinate the Act which regulates small crafts or boats, and the standards for construction, safety, operation and registration of small crafts.

He said this in response to Ijivitari MP, David Arore, who asked about the Transport Departments policy on small craft.

Arore said while by boat from a trip in Northern Province, he came across two capsised dinghies which resulted in a death of a person.
