George Osborne heads to Brussels to argue against £1.7bn EU bill

first_imgGeorge Osborne is today expected to argue that the UK will not accept an instalment deal to pay the £1.7bn bill Brussels has demanded in full over the course of 2015, after a spokesman for the Prime Minister said that this would be “unacceptable”.The chancellor has been sent to negotiate a reduction in the UK’s bill, calculated by statistical authority Eurostat, at a meeting of finance leaders in Brussels. It follows a week of discussions aimed at getting to the bottom of how the bill has been calculated, based on the UK’s gross national income.EU officials suggested earlier this week that leaders would allow the UK to spread the full bill over several months without incurring interest on the debt. However. a government spokesman said last night that the scale of the £1.7bn payment is unacceptable and no such deal will be agreed.Osborne’s meeting comes as the UK’s own commissioner in Europe, Lord Hill, urged Westminster’s politicians “to calm the situation down”, and to “look at a practical solution to the challenges that various member states face” following the large bills.

Pharmalittle: Hospitals grapple with extra dose of Pfizer vaccine; FDA panel meets to review Moderna vaccine

first_img Ed Silverman About the Author Reprints @Pharmalot Log In | Learn More Good morning, everyone, and how are you today? We are doing just fine, thank you, despite a heavy blanket of snow that has descended on the Pharmalot campus. After all, what’s a little precipitation? The official mascot, in fact, is thrilled and is bounding about the campus grounds, which leaves us to get on with the tasks ahead. Speaking of which, you have your choice today of interesting events to watch: a congressional hearing where some members of the Sackler family will appear to discuss the role of Purdue Pharma in the opioid crisis, and an FDA panel to review another Covid-19 vaccine. Enjoy. Meanwhile, here are some tidbits. Hope your day goes well, and do stay in touch. …With the Covid-19 vaccine in short supply, hospital pharmacists found themselves in the unexpected position of throwing away one in every six doses of the first vaccines distributed this week in the U.S., STAT writes. The confusion came over labeling: The vaccine comes in vials labeled as containing enough for five doses. But pharmacists discovered that, after thawing and mixing the contents with a dilutent, each vial contained enough vaccine for six doses. Without explicit approval from the manufacturer, that final dose had to be discarded.

Gain in Canada’s manufacturing sales in April will be temporary, analysts say

first_img Keywords Economic indicators Canadian manufacturing sales rose more than expected in April, but economists cautioned the gain is likely temporary due to the disruption caused by the Alberta wildfires in May. Statistics Canada says manufacturing sales rose 1.0% to $50.4 billion in April, the first increase following two consecutive months of declines. Economists had expected a gain of 0.6% from March, according to Thomson Reuters. The Alberta forest fires that destroyed parts of Fort McMurray in May are expected to be a significant drag on the economy with many predicting a contraction for the second quarter. Royal Bank senior economist Nathan Janzen said the shutdown of close to 50% of Canada’s non-conventional oil production due to forest fires and the evacuation of Fort McMurray, Alta., will weigh on May and June. “We nonetheless continue to expect an increase in overall GDP in April after consecutive declines in February and March that in turn retraced much of a large jump in activity in January,” Janzen wrote in a commentary. He added that April’s improvement will be temporary and RBC estimates GDP will decline 1.0% on an annualized rate in the second quarter before it rebounds to a four per cent rate in the third quarter as activity in the region resumes. In its monthly survey of manufacturing for April, Statistics Canada said the 1.0% increase was due to higher sales in the petroleum and coal product, transportation equipment, and primary metal industries. Sales in the petroleum and coal product industry gained 8.3% to $4.1 billion in April, following a 13.4% increase in March. Meanwhile, transportation equipment sales increased 2.1% to $11.0 billion, helped by a 6.3% gain in the aerospace products and parts industry which totalled $1.7 billion. Sales increased in 10 of 21 industries, representing 55% of Canadian manufacturing sales. In constant dollar terms, sales were up 1.4%, indicating a higher volume of manufactured goods were sold in April. Sales were up in six provinces, with Alberta, Quebec and Ontario posting the largest gains. Alberta gained 3.5% to nearly $5.1 billion, helped by the a 19.6% increase in petroleum and coal products. Quebec increased 1.4% to $11.6 billion, driven by an 11.2% increase in the aerospace product and parts industry, while Ontario climbed 0.4% to $24.9 billion due to higher sales in the primary metals industry.

Less Children Dying in Road Accidents

first_imgRelatedLess Children Dying in Road Accidents Less Children Dying in Road Accidents UncategorizedSeptember 14, 2007 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Road Safety Unit has reported a reduction in the number of children killed on the nation’s roads for the first eight months of the year, but has expressed concern for those in the five to nine age group, which accounts for the highest number of road fatalities among children.According to statistics from the Unit, 18 children have died on the roads between January to August 2007, representing a 22 per cent reduction when compared to the 23 who died over the same period last year. Six children within the five to nine age group have died this year, compared to 11 for the same period in 2006.Director of the Road Safety Unity, Paul Clemetson said that the inadequacy of parents to introduce their children to proper road usage is the main reason for deaths within this age group. “As parents seek to expose their children to traffic, they should ensure that they are prepared. If we do not prepare them, then we are negligent as parents and guardians, and we are exposing them to an environment that can result in their deaths,” he stated.He called on parents to take their children, especially those who walk to school, several times to and from school, before allowing them to do so by themselves.He also appealed to parents and guardians to ensure that there are proper child restraint mechanisms in their vehicles, as “many children are killed as passengers in private motor vehicles.”A study carried out by the Unit has shown that in a collision, unrestrained children and those not properly restrained, are 65 to 75 per cent less likely to survive the impact. “On too many occasions, we have observed crashes in which children, who were unrestrained, are thrown from the vehicle to their death. This could have been avoided if the child was appropriately restrained,” Mr. Clemetson noted.The Road Safety Act makes it mandatory for parents to acquire proper restraining systems when travelling with children. A violation of this law warrants a fine not exceeding $5,000.In the meantime, the Road Safety Unit has a number of publications and carries out several public education campaigns within schools to educate children on the proper use of the roadways and to foster within children, an appreciation for road safety. Road safety education has also been incorporated within the school curriculum.

Rev. Ronald Thwaites, has expressed delight at the launch of a sixth form programme at the Ferncourt High School, in St. Ann.The programme has been launched for 25 students who are pursuing studies in the sciences.Speaking at the recent launch of the programme at the school, Rev. Thwaites said the Ministry of Education has been placing much emphasis on the promotion of the sciences in the schools.“The Ministry is currently placing emphasis on promoting the sciences and there are plans to upgrade or provide new laboratory facilities in several high and primary schools, starting during this school year,” the Minister noted.Rev. Thwaites said qualifications in the sciences are in demand, and Ferncourt High School is well positioned to equip students with vocational training.“The sciences are part of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects that are in demand by the labour market and institutions of higher learning. Ferncourt is also well positioned in terms of equipping students with Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET), along with the traditional grammar school curriculum,” the Minister said.He congratulated the administration at Ferncourt High for their thriftiness in the construction of four new classrooms and sanitary conveniences at the institution.The classrooms were constructed at a cost of $14.7 million,  while the sanitary conveniences were built at a cost of $10.3 million, through canteen sales and savings from Government subventions to the school.“This is the second time in two weeks that I have had the pleasure to participate in the opening of expanded school facilities that have been financed through the thriftiness of the local management. In these times of fiscal constraints, it is commendable when school administrators underwrite the cost of plant expansion through savings from their subventions from the Ministry, supported by fund-raising activities and donations,” the Minister said.“The school raised $8.7 million from canteen sales and $17.5 million from savings over three years from its subvention,” he added.Ferncourt High School, which was officially opened in 1938, has an enrollment of 1,467 students.
