Labour Party leader Joseph Muscat has announced a series of proposals that will be implemented by a Labour-led new Government, aiming that the prosperity in our country to be distributed with social justice.
During the seminar organised by the Labour Party at MFCC with the theme "A fair society", Dr Muscat said he will put the minds of parents of disabled children at rest whilst assuring a care system and residences in the community.
Dr Muscat said it is unacceptable that important decisions such as raising utility bills and selling the gas service are being undertaken without a serious study on how it will effect the Maltese and Gozitan families.
Dr Muscat stated that a new Labour-led government will operate with an "Open Government" concept in an open and transparent way.
"Thus, the New Government will work with facts to reinforce the concept of a fair society," Muscat said.
Dr. Muscat said that for the Labour Party, disabled people are at the forefront of the social agenda of our country and he proposed a care system in residential homes in the community.
The Labour leader said that as money was available for a new Parliament, so there should be money for the children of Maltese and Gozitan families.
Dr Muscat announced that the New Government will launch new tax measures for persons with disabilities and their families, by giving incentives on trusts, financial resources and inheritance assets left by parents and others to children with disability, so as to be used in the best interest of the child.
"Through these initiatives, we are bound to build and leave for future generations, a fair society so as our children will have a better future than us," said Dr Muscat.
