Scrutiny Panel to Review Brexit
Tuesday 25 July 11:01
A new Brexit Review Panel has been formed to scrutinize Jersey’s policy towards Brexit.
The Brexit Review Panel met for the first time last week and has taken on the responsibility for scrutinizing both how the States of Jersey is preparing for Brexit and the specific changes to legislation that will follow Jersey’s “Repeal Bill”, expected later this year. Members comprise representatives from each of the existing Scrutiny Panels, in order to provide oversight of what is a wide and varied topic.
Chairman of the Brexit Panel, Deputy John Le Fondré commented;
“It is important that a Panel with such a significant responsibility has been formed. Whilst we are not in the EU, the UK negotiations for Brexit will affect every Islander in some manner. As such, effective scrutiny of both the strategy the Government has taken for navigating Brexit and the changes to legislation that will occur, is vital.”
