Guernsey States review revealed

New plans released today suggest a full restructure of the States of Guernsey.

The States Review Committee has proposed reducing the number of Deputies from 45 to 38, and replacing the current departments with six committees:

  • Committee for Economic Development
  • Committee for Education, Sport and Culture
  • Committee for Employment, Housing and Social Security
  • Committee for Environment and Infrastructure
  • Committee for Health and Social Care
  • Committee for Home Affairs

All Committees would be made up of five States members, and up to two non-members.

The States Review Committee says this would save around £1 million every year, by reducing the States' salary bill.
