Now that Marlon Penn has been appointed the new Minister of Health and Social Development, his post as Junior Minister for Trade will be revoked, Premier Dr D Orlando Smith has said.
“In fact, that was just done,” Dr Smith said, adding that the junior minister post will be handed over to another government legislator.
“I now have the liberty to advise the governor that, that position of Junior Minister for Trade be bestowed and passed down to the Honourable Alvera Maduro Caines,” Dr Smith added.
Dr Hubert O’Neal is the new Junior Minister of Tourism — a position recently held by At-Large representative, Archibald Christian.
Penn, in the meantime, was sworn in as Health Minister at Government House in Road Town Tuesday morning.
