Opposition questions Kellier's appointment as Agriculture Minister

The Opposition is questioning the government's decision to appoint Kellier as Agriculture Minister in addition to his Labour and Social Security Portfolios.



Kellier's shadow minister, JC Hutchinson says the Agriculture sector is a large one, which makes a significant contribution to the country's Gross Domestic Product.



As a result he says the ministry should not have to be shared with Kellier's other portfolios.



And while he says it's good that Kellier will receive help with the Agriculture portfolio from Luther Buchanon, Hutchinson says it is unfortunate that he too will be sharing his focus among several portfolios.
