Slow start to replacing Becroft
The term of Children’s Commissioner, Andrew Becroft, has been extended an extra four months while his successor is found.
Social Development and Employment Minister Carmel Sepuloni says Judge Becroft’s five-year term was set to expire on June 30, but he will stay until October 31.
She says he has been a tireless advocate for tamariki and will leave a powerful legacy.
Details of the process for finding a new Commissioner are currently being finalised and a call for applications will be made shortly.
