"Some Extra Help With Debt"

More asking Jersey's Citizens Advice for debt help

More people are contacting the Jersey Citizens Advice Bureau over debts.
In 2012, it helped 278 people with debts totalling £5,058,000 - the previous year 262 people had problems with a total debt of £2,857,000.
Malcolm Ferey, the chief executive of Jersey's Citizens Advice Bureau, said the amount of debt had been falling until this "blip" in 2012.
He said it had been caused by two or three really large cases.
But he said: "I'm sure the increases in energy bills are going to affect people's pockets."
It was announced on Friday gas prices would rise by 3% and Jersey electricity prices rose by 9.5% at the beginning of the year.

  1. Extra debt? Not to mention increases in public debt for tax-payer funded super-injunctions, which the public has no right to know the details of, apparently. Islanders have to pay for their lords' secret financial and political abuses and not only have no right to honest answers, but even elected representatives have no guaranteed right to question it without unelected Bailiff's approval.
