Merger might not be necessary, says Kellman
MINISTER OF HOUSING Denis Kellman does not appear to be in favour of a merger involving the National Housing Corporation (NHC).

“One of the things that people must understand is that this minister has been fighting to ensure that NHC is restructured and that the financial position has been improved,” he noted.
The minister admitted that there were ongoing discussions with Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler with regard to the amalgamation of the NHC with the Urban Development Commission, and the Rural Development Commission. (YB)
