The Balearic government yesterday challenged Madrid's appeal against the local moratorium on the construction of new hyper markets. The moratorium was unanimously approved by all political parties in the Balearic parliament last December, but central government announced last week that it has lodged an appeal on the grounds that it is unconstitutional, the same grounds for Madrid's legal challenge against the tourist tax. Balearic Minister for Commerce, Pere Sampol, said yesterday “this time it's political,” while repeating his pledge to defend the interests of the region's small shop keepers.
