Lashley explains camp pay delays Minister of Youth Stephen Lashley. (FP)

THOUGH MEASURES HAVE been implemented,  there have still been challenges with paying  the 1 182 staff working with the 2013 National Summer Camp Programme.

Many of those challenges resulted from late submission of information and also inaccurate information submitted from the camps to the  Ministry of Youth.

This was the word from Minister of Youth  Stephen Lashley as he spoke to the media after touring some of the camps yesterday along with ministry officials.

He said that in an effort to rectify the payment issues experienced in the past, the ministry  introduced protocols to enhance and make  the process effective. (AH)

Government needs to check all this freeness. I visited one of these camps, and the director was quietly venting about the inappropriate dress, vulgar music, rudeness and lack of co-operation openly displayed by the children; I saw it for myself for the half an hour or so I was there. Many of our children have no limit and no respect...not sure I want my tax paying money to fund them to go to Summer Camp free.

The summer camp programme as currently instituted should be scrapped as it merely a drain on the budget.
