Julie Morgan MS, Deputy Minister for Health and Social Services
I welcome the 2019-20 the Children’s Commissioner for Wales’ annual report, which includes 18 recommendations for the Welsh Government.
I am today publishing our comprehensive response to each of these recommendations together with information about the actions we have already taken or intend to take. I am pleased we are able to accept or accept in principle all but one.
This response demonstrates how seriously we take children’s rights in Wales and builds on our proud record of promoting children’s rights and our commitment to ensure all children have the best start in life and are able to fulfil their potential.
I am grateful to the commissioner for her work to represent the voice of children and young people. I would like to thank her for her work on behalf of children and young people during the pandemic, particularly the Coronavirus and Me survey, which was carried out in partnership with the Youth Parliament, Children in Wales and the Welsh Government.
