Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has refuted claims that there is an Automated Teller Machine or ATM in his office.

Opposition Senator Danny Lugay made the suggestion when he was debating the Supplementary Estimates on Thursday.

He said there seems to be an ATM placed or fixed in the office of the Prime Minister and the Minister for Finance.

It was at that point that the Prime Minister rose to call for the member to withdraw the statement and to apologise.
