Review of the Draft Budget Statement 2018
Monday 30 October 11:10
Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel
The Draft Budget Statement for 2018 was published by the Minister for Treasury and Resources on 3rd October 2017. The Budget sets out the proposed income and expenditure of the States for the year ahead, including any changes to the way in which revenue is collected or spent.
The draft budget is published in full on the States Assembly website.
The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel has responsibility for scrutinising the work of the Minister for Treasury and Resources and we have commenced a review of the Draft Budget 2018. It is our intention to report the findings of our review to the States Assembly, ahead of the Assembly’s debate on 28th November 2017.
As part of our review, we wish to contact key individuals and organisations who may be affected by the changes proposed in the Draft Budget. As such, we would like to invite you to make a written submission to the Panel, providing your views or opinions on the changes proposed in the Draft Budget 2018, and how it will affect you. Further information about the review, including its terms of reference, can be found on our website: www.scrutiny.gov.je.
We would ask that any submission you do wish to make could be received by the Panel by Friday 10th November 2017.
Please note that all written submissions are uploaded to the Scrutiny website as a matter of course, with the exception being for any evidence received under a confidential or private agreement which, in accordance with Jersey Data Protection legislation, will not be released into the public domain. Extracts from submissions made publicly available in this manner may also be directly cited in the Panel’s final report.
If you have concerns in relation to submitting evidence, or regarding the review more generally, I would ask that you contact Timothy Nicolle at the Scrutiny Office on 441014 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, in the first instance.
Thank you for your consideration and assistance with this review. We look forward to hearing from you.
Deputy J.A.N. Le Fondré
