I express my thanks to the Australian and New Zealand Governments, through RAMSI, for the announcement of substantial new funding to build 200 houses for the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force.
One should not forget, too, the much earlier support of the Government of the Republic of China (ROC)in renovating and improving police housing at Rove.
One of my major concerns was always the state of police accommodation, particularly at Lata and Auki, where the houses were reported to be unfit for habitation.
I hope that the new funding, therefore, will aid police housing throughout the islands and not just be concentrated on Honiara.
I commend the present Commissioner of Police, Mr Peter Marshall, for his concern for his officers' and his leadership in the matter.
