Pembrokeshire Council's leader says the county is improving how it safeguards children in its care. Cllr Jamie Adams was responding to a decision by the Education Minister, Leighton Andres, to strengthen the powers of the team he sent into the county after concerns were raised last year.
The Education Minister, Leighton Andrews, say he is still not satisfied with Pembrokeshire Council's response to concerns about safeguards for children in its care. He warned last month that he would take further action if the council failed to improve its performance.
In particular, he wanted better co-operation with the Pembrokeshire Ministerial Board, a team he sent into the county last year when concerns first became public. He has now announced that he is taking stronger measures.
