Scrutiny Panel Announces Review of Migration Policy

Monday 5 March 15:21

The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel has today announced that it is undertaking a highlevel review of the Council of Ministers’ Migration Policy.

The Council of Ministers presented its Migration Policy Report to the States on 8th December 2017 (R.134/2017). It was expected that the policy would be debated by the States in March 2018. However, the Panel notes recent comments by the Chief Minister that it will not now be debated until after the May elections.
Having already commenced initial scrutiny of the policy, the Panel considers that it is important to share its initial observations and findings with stakeholders. This would then allow more detailed scrutiny to be undertaken prior to the policy being debated by the States following the elections.

Deputy John Le Fondré, Chairman of the Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel, said:
Ensuring any growth in Jersey’s population is sustainable in the long-term remains a key area of concern for both the Assembly and the public. 
There has been a significant amount of public interest and media attention in relation to the proposals published by the Chief Minister in December. 
We were expecting that the Chief Minister would bring forward a proposition to address this important issue before the election. In the absence of a final policy being put to the States for debate, our review will be in the form of a high level assessment of the Chief Minister’s proposed migration strategy. 
We intend to publish our initial observations on the policy to assist future more detailed scrutiny when the policy is lodged for debate.”
