Scrutiny Panel to Review Population Policy

Friday 6 October 09:50

The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel has announced that it will be reviewing the draft population policy which is due to be lodged this Autumn.

The Panel has received a draft of the policy on a confidential basis and has informed the Chief Minister that it will be undertaking a review of the final version, once it has been lodged.
The Policy is expected to outline a new strategy for the management of Jersey’s population and levels of inwards migration. It has previously been announced that the draft policy explores the use of work permits, photographs on registration cards and the introduction of criminal records checks for new migrants.
Deputy John Le Fondré, Chairman of the Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel, said:
“The growing size of Jersey’s population has for a long time been a key area of concern for both the Assembly and the public. Whilst migration to the Island will need to play a part in supporting an ageing population and contributing to our economy, any increase in size needs to be carefully balanced with the extra demands placed on infrastructure, housing, education and healthcare.”
