Also, public sector offices, excluding hospitals, are to keep air conditioning at a min- imum of 24° Celsius in cooling mode, and 21° Celsius or lower in heating mode. The energy saving measures form part of guidelines issued to public sector workers by the Energy Ministry and the Office of the Principal Perma- nent Secretary last week.

MaltaToday understands that Cardona Gatt was "spoken to" by a trusted PN employee, who advised her on the sensitivity of the PN's deputy leadership election. Cardona Gatt's interest for the PN role was kept under wraps, after she humbly accepted to park her political ambitions so that Grech could have former 2017 leadership contender Peri- ci Calascione, by his side for the coming years. €1.95 ENERGY SAVINGS Government moves to contain energy costs and reduce air- conditioning as well as heating intensity to save on rising price of gas, with public sector guidelines to 'switch off at night' Energy minister Miriam Dalli (right) with European Commissioner Frans Timmermans, who in summer called for a Europe-wide energy saving campaign PN had second deputy leader contender...
