A CABINET MINISTER has strongly rejected Opposition accusations about a $10 000 monthly fee being paid for security services at the Grotto, and claims that Government is sitting on a proposal for units in the high-rise housing project.

Public Accounts Committee member Kerrie Symmonds (below) on Sunday accused the administration of paying the money for services at the Beckles Road, St Michael high-rise housing complex, which remains unoccupied more than two years after completion.kerriesymmonds

He alleged too that cost overruns had put the units out of the reach of the initial target group.

But in a sharp response, Minister of Housing Denis Kellman said the payments, which were no longer being made, were not only for the Grotto, but also for other Government properties that were being vandalised. (WILLCOMM)
