The National Housing Trust (NHT) has been directed to lower the cost of the houses it builds.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness said he gave the directive during a recent NHT board retreat.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony for the Darliston Grove and Shrewsbury Housing Developments in Westmoreland on Wednesday, Mr. Holness commented that the $13 million price tag for a two bedroom unit in the Darliston Grove scheme was high.
He said he wanted the NHT to now focus on lowering costs.
