Amendments to BNT rules backed by MPs
Legislation to modernise the Bermuda National Trust was passed by MPs today with support from both sides of the House of Assembly.
Diallo Rabain, the education minister, launched the debate on the Bermuda National Trust Amendment Act.
He said the BNT looked after 277 acres of land and 82 properties, which included historic homes, nature reserves, farmland and cemeteries.
The Act allowed for an increased number of people to be elected to the BNT council, up to 13, and the removal of appointment to the council by entitlement.
The council will run its affairs through the passing of by-laws and has the power to appoint its own auditor each year to review its accounts.
