Minister of Finance, Colm Imbert, says Government has purchased a brand new passenger/vehicle vessel at a cost of US$17.4 million, to service the inter-island sea bridge.

The Finance Minister made the revelation in response to a question in the Lower House from Pointe-a-Pierre MP, Dr. David Lee.

He said the vessel can accommodate 700 passengers and 100 vehicles and has never been put into service.

The Finance Minister, in a statement earlier in the day, described as "erroneous, false and misleading" an article in one of Friday's daily newspapers, which claimed that Government is currently in the negotiation stage for the purchase of what it describes as a "fancy cruiser ferry."
