Island overcosts covered

After the Study on island over cost presented to French authorities (Prime Minister) in July 2015, the help of many MP’s and the Bretagne Regional council Chairman (also Minister of French Army Jean Yves Le Drian), the french government proposed to cover the island overcost estimated 4 million euro/year (incuding investment & running costs) for all îles du Ponant island  communes.

Yesterday evening, the French Parliement (l’Assemblée Nationale) voted the additional  law for this. It still has to be confirmed  by Sénat within a few days, but our French member AIP is very confident about this.
