SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Oct 2 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The senator for the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands Fernando Clavijo will question the State Government in the Plenary of the Upper House next Tuesday about the urgency in the processing of aid for the volcanic eruption in La Palma.
Fernando Clavijo will be interested in the measures that the state government plans to articulate for the granting of aid to those affected by the Cumbre Vieja volcano “to avoid delays similar to those of previous catastrophes.”
The nationalist senator will defend in the plenary session that “the bureaucratization of the procedures be minimized in order to facilitate access to aid and that it be immediate.”
In this regard, he stressed that the volcanic crisis on La Palma is “one of the worst natural disasters in the State and the situation of vulnerability in which those affected have been is dramatic because they have not only lost their homes, but also the land in those that were built and in many cases their businesses and way of life, “he added.
Fernando Clavijo will demand that the emergency situation is not an impediment to begin to materialize the measures and the aid “in the first place to solve the housing situation of the thousands of evicted people and in second to respond to the damages in basic infrastructures, fundamentally roads, schools , as well as, guarantee the irrigation system in the area to prevent the loss of banana production from being greater.
Likewise, the nationalist senator will ask that the damage that the lava has already caused in the island’s primary sector be quantified and that aid be enabled as soon as possible, not only palliative but also those necessary to promote the island’s socioeconomic development, because to many farmers, fishermen and ranchers stopped their activity on the day of the volcano eruption and many do not know when they will be able to resume their activity.
