Government is maintaining that the move to relocate the Ministry of Public Utilities in Port of Spain to One Alexandra Place will result in a lower rental bill for tax payers.
However, when questioned by reporters this afternoon for more details on the savings to the state Minister in the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs, Stuart Young, said he was not in a position at this time to divulge such information.
It was also revealed that Public Utilities Minister, Ancil Antoine along with some support staff has already moved into the Ministry’s new location and by the middle of this month the entire process should be completed.
Minister Young added that the building which is currently occupied by the Public Utilities Ministry which is at the corner of Elizabeth Street and Tragarete Road will be occupied by the Ministry of Sport which is now located on lower Abercrombie Street.
He explained satisfaction with the overall arrangements for the transaction adding that it was freed of any shady dealings.
