Chairman of the Rural Electrification Programme (REP), Reverend Garnett Roper, says efforts are being made to ensure that electricity is provided to the remaining seven per cent of the residents of Westmoreland who do not have access to the utility.



Speaking at a ceremony in Llandilo Phases Five and Six on Tuesday, where electricity was officially commissioned into service for 60 households, Reverend Roper said 93 per cent of the people in the parish are now enjoying the facility.



Speaking specifically about the provision of electricity for some 60 households in Llandilo Phases Five and Six, Reverend Roper said as of Monday, representatives of the REP will be in the communities to start discussion with the residents, with a view to getting their houses properly wired.
