"Wishful Thinking"

Scrutiny panel to investigate immigration

Scrutiny panel to investigate immigration

CONCERNS about the number of people living in Jersey following the release of figures from the Census results are to be examined by a States scrutiny panel.

The panel will look at new controls on living and working in Jersey before they come into force in July, to see if they will give ministers real powers to control population levels.

The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel announced the review after Census data revealed that the Island’s population had reached 97,857 – much more than States departments thought it would be.

They will look into the new rules, why the figure was so much more than originally thought, and review previous reports that recommended tighter controls.

  1. To little to late me thinks! The only way we are going to be able to manage this pressing problem, because it is a problem that impacts on every aspect of our Island life, is to get out of any EU treaty we have signed and, close our boarders in terms of living and working here to anyone that isn't British!

    If the Portugues and Eastern European influx of work migrants wasn't enough to wake us up,then just wait until the year 2015, when Turkey joins the EU!

    The Jersey people will know what it's like to live in the real world, a world where there is no second chance or, the turning back of the clock!
