The Ministry of Justice says it is actively considering moving offices under the Attorney General’s Chambers located at the NCB Towers on Oxford Road in St Andrew because of the recurring problem of a foul odour inside the building.

Solicitor General Nicole Foster Pusey says the problem persists despite remedial work by the building’s owner.

Fostor Pusey, who was responding to questions during yesterday’s sitting of Parliament’s Public Administration and Appropriations Committee (PAAC), said the air quality issues inside the building is a challenge for staff.

She said the problem has worsened in the last year or so.

The committee was informed that it was initially contemplated that the office would be expanded by retrofitting additional space inside the building.

But, the Solicitor General said at the moment those plans are on pause due to the foul odour issue.

She said internal consultations are being held to determine the best court of action.
