Swimming pool, court

During the debate in the House of Assembly last week Tuesday, August 3, the Leader of the Opposition Arnhim Eustace raised a question regarding the construction of a swimming pool and tennis court at the official residence of the Prime Minister.
Prime Minister Gonsalves was very strident in his response or denial of the existence of the two facilities, in fact so much so that SEARCHLIGHT was moved to investigate whether they existed or not.{{more}}
The results of our investigations are demonstrated in the photos. The pool appears to have been constructed with the original building that was demolished to make way for the present structure.
There however was a section of earth excavated that can possibly facilitate the lengthening of the present pool, which bears the marks of years of disuse. There was, on the other hand, a paved concrete area, just off the driveway at the front of the house, which may have been a badminton court in former times given its size.
Well they say often that a picture tells a better story so here they are.
