Prime Minister Andrew Holness could address the land saga in Parliament this afternoon.

Minister without responsibility in the Economic and Growth and Job Creation Ministry, said yesterday Holness could speak on the matter.

Yesterday, former transport and works minister, Dr Omar Davies, who had inked the highway deal in 2012 on behalf of the government, distance himself from the controversy and pointed fingers at the Ministry of Finance and Urban Development Corporation (UDC).  

According to Davies, some of the prime lands from Mammee Bay and Caymanas were valuated.

However, he said the UDC and the Ministry of Finance should tell the public about the process.
