The discussion segment commences at 4:30 and at that time we take another look at the age of consent issue. Should it be moved from 16 to 18? We explore the arguments, some which were presented at a meeting of a Parliamentary Committee Chaired by Justice Minister Delroy Chuck last week with our panel.

In the second half of the discussion segment at 5 p.m., the Health Ministry is providing accommodation for indigent persons at infirmaries and hospitals, a longstanding problem which creating a major financial and space burden. Director of Mental Health, Dr. Maureen Irons-Morgan and Nurse Administrator at the Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill (CUMI) Joy Crooks will join us.
