More than one-third of teachers' quarters nationwide still vacant, Dewan Rakyat told

KUALA LUMPUR: Some 18,740 out of 47,947 units of teachers' quarters developed by the Education Ministry remain unoccupied, the Dewan Rakyat was told.

Deputy Education Minister Lim Hui Ying said her ministry had appointed property consultants to conduct a thorough study and submit proposed solutions to optimise the occupancy rate of the quarters nationwide.

The study was expected to be completed by the end of the month, she added.

"We will wait for the report before planning the next course of action," she said in reply to Young Syefura Othman (PH-Bentong) during Question Time on Wednesday (March 15).

Young Syefura had asked the ministry to reveal the number of teachers' quarters in the country and its plan to repair and maintain dilapidated units.
