"Plans To Axe Departments Are Shredded"

States drop the idea of axing three department

LEAKED plans to cut one-in-seven States managers and axe three departments have been dropped, the States’ top civil servant has confirmed.
In response to questions under the Code of Practice on Public Access to Official Information by the JEP, States chief executive Bill Ogley has confirmed that the plans – revealed by the newspaper last September -are not being acted on.
The plans could have meant the end of the Economic Development, Housing and Transport departments, and could have meant that tax collection, Harbours, the Airport and car parks would have been outsourced or privatised.
Mr Ogley also confirmed that there are no new plans about restructuring the States – he said any proposals under consideration had already been made public.
