Campbell refutes uniform holdout claims



Social Services minister Frankie Campbell.

Social Services Minister Frankie Campbell on Tuesday refuted claims that his ministry would only assist up to two children per household in his ministry’s school uniform service.

Campbell who spoke with reporters outside Cabinet yesterday said, there appeared to be a gray area as to those who need uniforms versus those simply to take advantage of the benefit.

The minister also spoke to a budget cut for uniform assistance and how it will impact students seeking to access said benefit.
