"States Members To Question Corruption Pay-Offs"
QUESTIONS on why hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money was given in pay-offs to senior States managers will be asked in the States Chamber next week.
At least one States Member is understood to be asking a question during next Tuesday’s sitting about golden handshakes paid to the former States chief executive Bill Ogley and former chief officer of Health and Social Services Mike Pollard.
The two men received pay-offs totalling £800,000 between them, with Mr Ogley reportedly receiving £500,000 and Mr Pollard £300,000.
Over the weekend Deputy Phil Rondel had applied to the States Greffe to change a question he was due to ask next week on moorings to one about the golden handshakes.
However his request to ask that question has been turned down, according to the States Greffe, because another Member is already due to ask a question on the issue and the two were thought to be too similar.
