PATH to be reviewed following concerns raised by opposition – Clarke

Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke, has indicated, that the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education, (Path), is to be reviewed, in light of concerns raised by his opposition counterpart.

Last week, Julian Robinson pointed to issues, with the selection of Path beneficiaries, and called for the programme to be revamped.

In responding to the concern on Tuesday, while closing the budget debate, Dr. Clarke said, the labour ministry, in collaboration with the planning institute of Jamaica, will review the programme.

Dr. Clarke said the objective references, used when path was created years ago, are not relevant today.
