A loan motion for one point two million dollars was pushed through this morning during the sitting of the House of Representatives in Belmopan.  The loan is being acquired through the Caribbean Development Bank for a study under the Placencia Peninsula Wastewater Management Project.  This morning’s session was suspended briefly to give way to the Finance and Economic Development Committee to discuss the motion which Prime Minister Dean Barrow says would be repaid in quarterly installments.
