What's your view on the States Assembly?
And I hope you tell em' straight....
A leaflet is being distributed to every household in Jersey this week seeking the views of Islanders looking at the classes of States member;
their constituencies and mandates; the number of States members and their terms of office.
Commission Chairman, Senator Sir Philip Bailhache, said the initial stages of the Commissions work would involve seeking the views of Islanders.
He said:"We are very keen to engage with Islanders to find out their views on the future composition of the States Assembly. We hope that as many Islanders as possible will send in their submissions for consideration to guide us as we develop proposals for reform.
The States have agreed that whatever recommendations we make will need to be
submitted for public approval in a referendum and it is therefore important that we hear views from as many people as possible to enable us to develop proposals that will be acceptable to a majority of electors."
