ABOUT 60 civil servants in the Western Division are waiting to be housed in government quarters.

During the heads of department meeting in Lautoka yesterday, Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki revealed that housing was a major problem for workers in the region.

"A lot of our people are without proper government quarters right now and that is a major concern for us because we need to take care of our people," he said.

"If we do not take care of our people then they will not perform what is expected of them.

A survey by the Western Division housing committee revealed there were 554 government quarters and government rented houses in the West.

Of this number, 352 were government-owned while 202 were private homes rented by government departments.
