Opposition MP David Stellini this evening requested a bizarre piece of information from Foreign affairs minister Carmelo Abela, when he asked him to tell the House how many photocopies had been made in Maltese embassies abroad.

“Can the minister state the number of photocopies made from each photocopier in embassies/high commissions/permanent representatives since March 2013,” asked Stellini.

The request was not accepted by the minister.

“I cannot understand the utility of gathering this information, especially when one considers the resources needed to so and the fact that they could be used in other ways.”
