Increased confusion surrounds the fate of the old printery building in Castries amid apparent disagreement between two Cabinet members. MP for Castries Central, Richard Frederick, asserted during a pre-cabinet briefing that plans were underway to demolish the printery due to infrastructural challenges. He proposed repurposing the area to address vending issues after consulting with Prime Minister Philip Pierre.
“For those unaware, the printery is earmarked for demolition due to its physical condition. It presents engineering challenges that make its preservation difficult,” stated Frederick.
However, Pierre rebuffed Frederick’s assertions, affirming that no decision regarding demolition had been reached. Pierre emphasized the necessity of an engineer’s assessment and highlighted Frederick’s lack of expertise to authorize demolition.
“Here’s what will occur. We will conduct an engineering assessment of the building. I will present it to you,” explained Pierre. “The MP is not an engineer; he cannot make such claims. The engineer will make that determination,” he added.
