Leaf to be turned from Caines and DeSilva
New Cabinet appointments for the portfolios of national security as well as tourism and transport are expected at Government House today.

The two had to step down on July 6 after video clips were widely shared showing them breaking Covid-19 health restrictions at a rowdy dinner three nights earlier.
Mr Burt said last Thursday that he regretted losing “two committed and dedicated ministers”.
He added that “our demands for public compliance with rules and regulations mean nothing if we are not prepared to live by them ourselves”.

The announcement today by John Rankin, the Governor, comes hot on the heels of a Cabinet shuffle on June 4, with Jason Hayward sworn in as Minister of Labour as well as taking responsibility for immigration from Mr Caines.
