"States May Help Those In Debt By Stopping Their Illegal Parking Fines"

Commission chairman Clive Chaplin

In its latest report, the Jersey Law Commission, a voluntary body which reviews laws and makes recommendations to the States if it believes they ought to be amended or repealed, looks at ways to alleviate Jersey’s growing debt crisis.
The commission was asked to do so by the Citizens’ Advice Bureau, which has seen the number of people seeking help to deal with debt increase significantly over the past three years.
