Sexual Harassment Bill to Be Tabled this Year

Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen, says the Sexual Harassment Bill is to be tabled this year

Prime Minister Andrew Holness's promised job letters to Cabinet ministers did not materialise despite a pre-election promise to do so, but, speaking at his quarterly media briefing at Jamaica House yesterday, Holness said that ways have been found to hold ministers accountable.

The Governor-General further noted that the proposed Gender Advisory Council is also to be established and operationalised to provide direct oversight for implementation of the National Strategic Action Plan for Gender-based Violence.
