Mr. Speaker thank you. Firstly, let me give thanks to the Almighty as it is through the sacrifice of His only begotten son, that we received the Comforter, who sustains us daily.

It is not by our deeds we are here but by his grace.

Let me also thank the Prime Minister for continued confidence in me.

Mr. Speaker let me place on record my gratitude and appreciation to the staff of the Ministry of National Security. Their guidance is much appreciated. I also thank Senator Pearnel Charles Jnr; my colleagues Dr. Horace Chang and Rudy Spencer, who will continue working with the team there.

Mr. Speaker, I wish them well and urge us all to be patient and supportive.

To Minister Mike Henry, let me thank him for the way he ran his leg of the relay; he has left a solid foundation for me to build on.

Mr. Speaker, the PS, Dr. Alwin Hales, and the Staff at the Ministry of Transport and Mining and their related agencies and departments, have all welcomed me to their areas of responsibility and together we will succeed.

Let me acknowledge my personal staff and security detail. Over the few weeks, their job has become harder and more stressful, because of information received that some from the criminal underworld wish to do me harm.

“Dutty Criminals”, Mr. Speaker, must never succeed. We in this house must not have any divide in that mission and all Jamaicans must unite and support Minister Chang and the security forces.
