Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, is warning contractors who build homes for the Housing Development Corporation that their performance will be closely monitored.

Dr. Rowley insists that this approach is necessary especially in light of the rising cost of materials.

He made the comments at the keys distribution ceremony held at Real Springs housing development in Valsayn today.

The Prime Minister admitted that the demand for homes provided by the state is high and the government is doing what is required to satisfy the urgent need for units.
