Mersey Port Health Authority

An interesting meeting last week of the MPHA.

We examined the business plan for the next three years for this important authority who work on ensuring that nothing that might be harmful to our health gets into our country or city through either the Ports or the Airport.

They examine imports, food stuffs, live animals and so on.

They check vessels for rats and also check liners for bacterial and viral "germs" and so on.

Ron Gould raised an issue about the docks not having immigration check points and we have agreed to bring this up with the relevant authorities.

It is an authority that nobody ever mentions, I didnt even know it existed until I started sitting on it. We said we should be improving our publicity as I think people would want to know about the work that is being done. I have offered to help with that if necessary.
