JAMES DEBONO EMPLOYEES of the consortium of companies that tend to Malta's urban landscapes in towns and roads, will be laid off on 31 December, when the company's contract with the government formally expires. The Environmental Landscapes Consortium (ELC) was chosen without any form of tendering procedure back in 2003 when it was entrusted with the maintenance of Malta's pub- lic areas. MASSIMO COSTA THE government will be running a Brexit drill for all its departments to gauge their reaction in the case of a no-deal withdrawal. The drill will apply to all relevant governmental entities, and will in- clude readiness testing on issues ranging from how British tourists will be processed at Malta's airport to how customs will deal with im- ports and exports. European Affairs minister Ed- ward Zammit Lewis, addressing a press conference on Brexit pre- paredness on Tuesday, said there was no date yet set for the drill, but that the government was monitor- ing the fluid situation and would identify the best time to carry it out. "The drill will be a horizontal one and will cover various depart- ments which need to be prepared," Zammit Lewis said, "We haven't set a date yet, but we are following developments and will act accord- ingly." The government's campaign slo- gan - Brexit: be prepared - showed that it was gearing itself up for eve- ry eventuality, the minister said. "Brexit is something which will affect all Maltese citizens, Mal- ta's enterprises, and also Maltese in the UK and British citizens in Malta. This is not an abstract con- cept - we have to work on practical things," he said.
