Sectoral Presentation 2022

Madam Speaker,
In what continues to be challenging times for our nation and the world by extension, I am extremely grateful
for the opportunity to report on the achievements of the Ministry of Justice in this my seventh consecutive year
as Minister of Justice. It is also with an immense sense of pride, that I highlight the privilege of appearing in this
Honourable House on behalf of the constituents of North East St Andrew, serving as their Member of Parliament
for 25 years.
Mr Prime Minister, I am thankful for your confidence in my ability to continue the drive of “Access to Justice for
a Better Jamaica”, as we build on the pillars towards a reformed and improved Justice Sector.
To my hardworking team at the Ministry of Justice, thank you. I acknowledge the Acting Permanent Secretary,
Mrs Grace Ann Stewart McFarlane for taking on the herculean task of ensuring that the plans and policies
towards a reformed Justice Sector are met. The task is in no way an easy one, and without the Ministry’s team,
the advancements in the Justice Sector could not be achieved.
