Jersey's only political party is proposing a raft of changes to the government's spending plans, including removing the sales tax from electric cars and solar panels.
Reform Jersey is publishing a series of amendments to the Government Plan, which is due to be debated later this month.
They're calling for the GST on expensive cars (costing more than £30,000) to be doubled to 10%, with the tax on electric cars and solar panels scrapped as part of a push to make the island more environmentally friendly.
They also want to increase the amount of Social Security paid by employers to fund improved benefits for new parents.
Elsewhere, they say the proposed doubling of the rate of Long Term Care tax from 1% to 2% should be axed, with the upper earnings limit removed so higher earners pay more.
It comes as politicians begin pushing their own amendments to the Government Plan which sets out spending priorities for the next four years. It is also due to include £100million of cost cutting measures to balance the public sector finances.
The plan to remove GST from solar panels has been welcomed by those working in the renewable energy sector.
