Iago Negueruela, the Balearic minister for the economic model, tourism and employment, has been at the centre of the controversy surrounding the government's tourism decree. The main bone of contention, or so it has appeared, has concerned the four-year moratorium on new tourist accommodation places. On this, he says that "everyone agrees with the moratorium". Freezing new places is "because there is no longer a need for more places on the islands". "We must start talking about how to stop the growth in tourist intensity. I think that even those who have been so against the decree actually support some of these issues."
