The House sitting and debate on Enemalta degenerated into chaos as Minister Konrad Mizzi after rebutting arguments made by the Opposition suddenly launched into a series of allegations against George Pullicino claiming many businessmen had negative things to say about him.
Dr Mizzi also claimed that a tender was found to have serious illegalities.
As Mr Pullicino denied any corruption, he also asked the Speaker to see if Dr Mizzi's allegations were permissible by House rules. Dr Mizzi rebutted that he had lodged a report with the Police.
The Speaker retired to listen to the recordings of what was said and give his ruling. He ruled that Minister Mizzi had not quoted from a document, there was no call to lay the document on the Table of the House. Prime Minister Muscat said that immediately following the sitting, government would publish the document Dr Mizzi referred to.

Minister Konrad Mizzi alleged that a document in connection with an energy tender issued by the previous administration for feed-in tariffs did not contain a bank's signature, adding that when contacted, the bank said that it was not possible for this document to have been issued by them.
This resulted in a huge uproar with the opposition demanding for the document to be tabled in front of Parliament. Minister Mizzi refused to do so and said that the information has been passed on to the police.
PN MP George Pullicino said that Minister Mizzi was defaming him and trying to dirty his clean reputation. In addition, he dared Minister Mizzi to mention a single businessman who spoke negatively about him.
Minister Mizzi proposed an ammendment to the motion, which would scrap all the PN's requests and focus on the positives of the Labour energy proposal, such as the change over to gas and the closing of the Marsa station.
Earlier, Minister Mizzi said that Shell would be providing the gas which would power the new gas power station and the BWSC plant once it was converted to gas.
Dr Mizzi said Shanghai Electric would finance the conversion of the BWSC plant to gas.
Dr Mizzi said the government would not be obliged to buy the output of the BWSC plant operated by Shanghai Electric, as Dr Busuttil had claimed.
On the power stations, Dr Mizzi said technical talks on the conversion of the BWSC plant to gas would be concluded shortly.
Dr Mizzi had, until July, said that the project was on track, Mr Pullicino argued.
Minister Mizzi was telling us in July that the project was on track, yet this media report appeared in June".

Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi mentioned that energy and water bills were reduced for families and now businesses will reap the fruit.
He mentioned that the project to change to gas is happening and that work on the interconnector is moving forward, he also mentioned that the Marsa station will be closed.
The Opposition asked for the documents of these plans to be tabled in Parliament, however the Speaker did not allow this as no reference was actually made to a document in Dr Mizzi's speech.
Dr Mizzi said he will get round to it.
Dr Mizzi mentioned that everyone except for the opposition, who are isolated in their way of thinking regarding the success of the energy sector.
Since Parliament will allocate a whole sitting on the debate, there was no need for a ministerial statement that was to be made by Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi.

New power station deadline to be given end November - Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi
Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi said today that he will be in a position to give an exact timeframe for the gas power station project towards the end of November.
Addressing a press conference this afternoon, Dr Mizzi said the project has started and a new deadline will be announced as soon as the tri-party agreements (between the government, Electrogas and Shanghai Electric Power) are concluded.
When asked by The Malta Independent if the government had set a target for the project completion, Dr Mizzi said that there is one but he prefers to "remain cautious" at this stage. "Please bear with me for a few more weeks until we close the loops between the three parties."
When asked what the real reason for the delay was, Dr Mizzi said the initial negotiations with Shanghai Electric Power were quite speedy but talks from the engineering perspective took longer than expected after the Chinese came up with a few technical proposals. The Minister said Enemalta had no choice but to seek a third investing partner to finance the conversion of the BWSC plant to run on gas.
The Minister explained that the projects being carried out by ElectroGas and SEP are intertwined because the former have to be advised on the completion date of the latter's project so as to synchronise its gas shipments.
This paper also asked the Minister to clarify an announcement he made on Monday, when he said that Shell will be providing the fuel (LNG) for the new power station and the converted BWSC plant, raising questions about SOCAR's future in the ElectroGas consortium. In his reply Dr Mizzi said SOCAR will be, among other things responsible for trading and hedging gas and coordinating gas shipments but it will buy the fuel from Shell. "The LNG will not be shipped from Azerbaijan. In reply to questions sent by this paper today, SOCAR also insisted that it will remain part of the consortium.
Asked if the Chinese are still willing to invest €320 in Enemalta when the government was saying that it will not be bound to buy all energy produced by BWSC, Dr Mizzi clarified that not all the amount will be used for the conversion of the plant.
He explained that Enemalta will need various generation platforms, some of which can be kept in reserve. The company will be able to choose which plant to use to produce the bulk of the energy load, according to pricing at the time.
It is envisaged that, in the first few years, the Siemens plant will be the main equipment used, followed in priority by BWSC and the interconnector. However, if interconnector prices fall drastically in the future the main load could be shifted onto the undersea cable.
When asked if the government is considering doing away with the gas tanker that will be moored in Marsaxlokk now that the project has been delayed, Dr Mizzi said the ElectroGas system allows for a quick replacement of the tanker with a gas pipeline. He did not say whether this would actually happen. He also announced that a maritime study is being conducted by a company called Marin.
Dr Mizzi said the people who criticised the government yesterday are the same people who insisted when they were still in government that tariffs could not be decreased. Now they are trying to take the credit by saying that tariffs decreased thanks to BWSC.
At the end of the day, said Dr Mizzi, this government reduced energy bills for households and will decrease tariffs for industry in March, a move that will further boost the economy. Enemalta will become profitable a few years down the line.
PV panels tender
On the "irregular" €35 million PV tender issued by the previous administration, Dr Mizzi accused former Resources Minister George Pullicino of trying to evade responsibility.
Dr Mizzi said the proposal was made by Alberta and was shortly after given a green light by George Pullicino's ministry.
This could be easily looked up on the Spanish company's website, said Dr Mizzi, who showed the media a photo of the event. All this happened a full three months before the Malta Resources Authority gave its go-ahead, so the Minister could not blame the MRA. "Georgie lied when he said he had nothing to do with this."
Dr Mizzi said the PV contract was fishy.
