In connection with the upcoming session of Parliament on September 19, 2023, a motion was reportedly filed to “create a Select Committee to review fuel in the Cayman Islands.”

The motion, being moved by MP Christopher Saunders and seconded by MP McKeeva Bush, states as follows:

Whereas the Cayman Islands Constitution Order 2009 affirms the Cayman Islands to be country that maintains prosperity for its’ people;

AND Whereas the prosperity of our people is being eroded on a daily basis by the high cost of living being that is also caused by high fuel costs;

AND Whereas oil companies are reporting record breaking profits;

And Whereas Section 70 of the Parliament Standing Orders allows for the establishment of a Select Committee to assist members in exercising its function under Part IV of the Constitution

Be it therefore resolved that the Parliament establishes a Select Committee before October 31, 2023, to be chaired by the Minister of Planning and consisting of no less than other 6 members to review the cost of fuel in the Cayman Islands and make recommendations by February 29, 2024, on how to reduce the cost of fuel in the Cayman Islands.

And be it further resolved that in the public’s interest that some meetings of this Select Committee be held in public.

Members of the public will now wait to see whether the motion will be passed and if the Select Committee will be established.
