"Mr. Speaker, the Ministry of Environment and Housing, the Ministry for Grand Bahama and the Environmental Department of the Grand Bahama Port Authority, with the assistance of PAHO/WHO have combined efforts, and are now working together to increase the technical expertise and financial resources, necessary to effectively police the environment of Grand Bahama," Darville maintained.
