Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, Stuart Young, has confirmed that the Government currently pays close to $300 million in rent for State Agencies.

But he's assuring that the Government has significantly reduced this figure from last year, and continues to attempt to reduce expenditure concerning rental of properties for Government use.

The Minister was responding to figures from the Auditor General's Report in April, which showed significant figures spent on renting buildings for State Agencies for the fiscal year 2015-2016.

He said the Government had previously addressed concerns about One Alexandra Place and a property along Robinson Circular, Arima, which had been acquired for the Motor Vehicle Authority.
