THE Ministry of Tourism,  Arts,  Culture, Youth and Sports is awaiting the Federal Government’s response on  the status of  the Mount Serembu and Brooke Heritage site before taking up the project.

During a question-and-answer session at the State Legislative Assembly sitting in Kuching yesterday, Assistant Minister of  Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Lee Kim Shin said the RM 1.6 million project had  tourism potential and had been put under the Federal Government funding.

However, after the May general election,  the    Pakatan Harapan (PH) government had put the project  on hold.

Lee was replying to Serembu assemblyman Miro Simuh on the latest status of the project.
“My ministry has pursued the matter with the Federal Tourism Ministry   and I hope the Federal Government will not cancel  the project.

“If it is  cancelled by the Federal Government, we will seek the fund from the state,” Lee said.
