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 Authority is making good progress in addressing the issues highlighted around children’s safeguarding issues. We remain committed to doing everything that can reasonably be expected to keep children in Pembrokeshire safe. I recognise there is still work to be done but I am determined that with the continued support of the Welsh Government we will reach a successful outcome.
