Another Minister?..

Peter Hain, our very own part-share-with-Wales Secretary of State, has responded to the report and recommendations from the Commissioner for Children and Young People – “a) The Secretary of State, taking a personal interest in ensuring the implementation of the recommendations detailed in this paper and Ruth Lavery’s report. b) The establishment of an effective interdepartmental group to manage and ensure the effective co-ordination of policy and practice in this area.”.. By appointing someone to take an interest for him.. “I intend to appoint a Minister for Children to ensure the rights of all children and young people are upheld”.. something that the report doesn’t specifically recommend.. Hmm.. Wasn’t the Commissioner supposed to do that?
