THE UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES (UWI) and the abandoned historic Sam Lord’s Castle hotel are among entities that will be provided for in the Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure 2015 to 2016.

The UWI will benefit from a subvention of $71.3 million, while $5 million is earmarked for the preparatory work on the redevelopment of Sam Lord’s Castle.

Other expenditures include $4.5 million for the Low Income Housing Project under the Ministry of Housing, Lands and Rural Development and a subvention of $26.6 million and a capital subvention of $2.4 million for the Sanitation Service Authority.
