The Welsh Government have responded to the meeting held with Pembrokeshire Council today. Ministers stood by their joint statement and letter to the leader yesterday and reiterated their strength of feeling about the situation in Pembrokeshire.
There remain serious questions to answer about what has happened and the subsequent response of the local authority and its officers.
Additionally, we understand new material has come to light within the last 24 hours which has today been passed to the police.
The prime and overarching concern of the Welsh Government throughout all of this remains the safeguarding of children in Pembrokeshire. This is absolutely paramount.
The Audit Office says despite some improvements, underlying issues have still not been tackled and the authority needs more help.
The latest report into child protection services in Pembrokeshire finds that whilst there have been improvements, more needs to be done.
Council leader Jamie Adams insists it has made good progress, but accepts there is more to do be done to improve children's services.
