A new system designed to streamline Guernsey's immigration and population management system has been branded 'a debacle' by a hotelier.
Ian Walker from Les Douvres Hotel and & the Fleur De Jardin says the new system has led to 'an exodus' of his staff.
He says he's really struggling to hire staff to work in his hotels from off-island.
The criticism follows a call from the Confederation of Guernsey Industry (CGI) to 'urgently review' the new population management regime, which has been labelled as 'cumbersome' and 'difficult to use'.
In response to this criticism, Home Affairs have not done any interviews with ITV News on the subject, but instead sent us this statement.
