"Not In Jersey To Hear The Views Of The Public On Corruption"

MPs to meet States Members today

Liberal Democrat MP Sir Alan Beith is among the visitors

JERSEY’S constitutional relationship with the UK will be in the spotlight today when three MPs visit the Island to meet States Members.
Liberal Democrat MP Sir Alan Beith, Plaid Cymru MP Elfyn Llywd and Conservative MP Nick de Bois are members of the UK’s Justice Select Committee, which scrutinises the work of the Ministry of Justice, under whose remit matters concerning Crown Dependencies fall.
Their visit is part of an inquiry to find out the extent to which recommendations made by a previous committee following a report in 2010 on the Crown Dependencies have been implemented.
Chief Minister Ian Gorst submitted written evidence to the panel on behalf of the Island earlier this year which touched on a number of areas, including royal assent and international representation.

  1. Ian.

    State Radio today has been telling its listener(s) about Ian Gorst's submitted evidence to the Panel. Now we have the State "news" paper telling its reader(s) about Ian Gorst's submission. Why won't they report on Deputy Mike Higgins' SUBMISSION?
