Housing Minister, Randall Mitchell, says the lands developed for the recently-launched Government's Aided Self Help-Housing Programme are not the lots identified for the former Caroni 1975 Limited workers.

The Minister launched the Programme last Friday.

Under the Programme, successful applicants will be able to purchase lots for 30% of the market value, and will receive support from the State to build their homes.

In the first phase, 1,000 lots will be distributed from former Caroni lands.

But President of the All Trinidad General Workers Union, Nirvan Maharaj, had expressed concern that after 14 years, former Caroni workers are still awaiting residential and agricultural lands which were part of their VSEP packages.

In response, Mr. Mitchell said the lands assembled for distribution are unallocated and unassigned surplus lots which have been developed by the Estate Management and Business Development Company Limited (EMBD), and transferred to the Land Settlement Agency.
