Boisterous meeting of National Housing workers reportedly addresses construction-materials challenge

Workers at National Housing held what is described as a boisterous meeting earlier today, November 12, reportedly to address a number of issues – among them construction materials.

Employees of the Government’s flagship housing scheme gathered at the Paynters job site, where Manager Telly Cornelius attempted to address their concerns.

REAL News correspondent George Wehner was on the scene of the reportedly boisterous meeting.  However, after he was recognized, Cornelius asked him to leave, saying the meeting was private.

Sources say that National Housing continues to struggle to complete its “500 Homes in 500 Days” project, promised since 2014.

The agency is supposed to be taking on the provision of temporary housing for the residents of Booby Alley in The Point, and $1.8 million of the recent Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) loan has been allocated for this project.
