Premier Andrew Fahie plans to table the BVI Resilient National Energy Transition Strategy at the House of Assembly sitting on Monday.
The step is among several agenda items listed on the session’s order paper, which was released on Tuesday.
Opposition Leader Marlon Penn is scheduled to ask Natural Resources, Labour and Immigration Minister Vincent Wheatley about plans to build a dock at Red Bay; about the restroom facility at Long Bay, Beef Island; about unencumbered Crown land; and about immigration policy.
