The house Govt won’t build

I recently read an article questioning the Government’s decision to place the Ministry of Tourism in the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, as opposed to a building more suited to the mandate and profile of such a ministry.
It seems to be a trend. I understand that the Ministry of Culture will soon be moving to newly built headquarters at the back of Julie’N Supermarket.
This is even worse than the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre. This is no suitable place for a Ministry of Culture.
Isn’t this the same ministry that proudly leads the way for the UNESCO World Heritage status?
It just shows that the Government is not serious about heritage or culture. Shouldn’t it seek to have the Ministry of Culture in one of the restored buildings on Jemmotts Lane or at the Old Eye Hospital.
Couldn’t the money be better spent refurbishing these buildings?
If Government wants the public and investors to be serious about preserving historic buildings, it has to get serious and lead by example.
