New Chairman and Committee Members Appointed to Jersey’s CPA

Thursday 21 June 16:42

Deputy of Grouville, Carolyn Labey, has been elected as the new Chairman of the Jersey Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association exists to bring together Parliamentarians and parliamentary staff from across the Commonwealth to exchange ideas and best practice. The Association particularly focuses on promoting good governance and training new parliamentarians. Jersey has been a member of the Association since 1961. Members from Jersey represent the Island at regional and worldwide conferences each year and in the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians group.

Upon her election, Deputy Carolyn Labey spoke of the importance of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association membership, saying, “Association membership gives us all wonderful opportunities to meet fellow Parliamentarians from other jurisdictions. To attend conferences, discuss topics of mutual interest and benefit, to share ideas, but also to network globally throughout the Commonwealth – a relationship that I believe is going to become more important post-Brexit.”

Connétable of St. Clement, Len Norman, has chaired the Jersey branch for the past nine years before stepping down earlier this month. The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Wednesday 20 June at 7pm at Hotel Ambassadeur in St. Clement where members and stakeholders selected their new Chair and committee members.

Attendees at Wednesday night’s Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Annual General Meeting included the Bailiff, Sir William Bailhache, the Deputy Bailiff, Tim Le Cocq and John Davies, the Secretary of the British Islands and Mediterranean region of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.

Committee members elected at the AGM were: Senator Sarah Ferguson, the Connétable of St. Helier, the Connétable of St. Martin, Deputy Jeremy Maçon, Deputy Louise Doublet, Deputy Kirsten Morel, Deputy Mary Le Hegarat, Deputy Jess Perchard and Deputy Kevin Pamplin.
