"The Twits Are Tweeting Alright"

Chamber of Commerce criticises Senator’s savings target tweet

BUSINESS leaders have reacted angrily to Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf’s claim that the £65 million public sector savings target may now be impossible to meet.
Senator Ozouf conceded this week that the States decision to delay proposed cuts to the funding of fee-paying schools would make it extremely difficult to achieve the public sector savings target.
But that assessment has been heavily criticised by the Jersey Chamber of Commerce, which is now calling on ministers to stick to their promise of taxing and saving.
Chamber vice-president James Filleul said that the group had strong feelings on the comments made yesterday by Senator Ozouf.
