New Children's Ministry may be on the cards

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says the viral video showing the physical abuse of a two year old girl has showed him that many of the country’s children are facing horrible conditions.

Speaking at a post cabinet media briefing today, Dr Rowley said he notes concerns about the inability of the People’s National Movement Government’s to meet the needs of children, without a dedicated ministry, and it has forced him to reconsider his position on it.

The Prime Minister said that if it is that issues regarding children get lost in the current cabinet configuration, he will be examining it and if a minor adjustment is required to effect a greater focus then he will look at ensuring the structure is adjusted to meet those needs.
