UK’s Justice Select Committee to visit Jersey

Monday 23 January 09:50

Members of the UK’s Justice Select Committee will visit Jersey on 23 and 24 January 2017 as part of the Committee’s inquiry into the implications of Brexit for the Crown Dependencies.

The delegation, which will be led by the Committee’s Chairman Robert Neill MP (Con), will have completed a similar fact-finding visit to the Isle of Man before arriving in Jersey and will travel on to Guernsey. All three jurisdictions have already submitted formal written evidence to the Committee (the Government of Jersey’s submission can be found here).

During their time in the Island, the members of the delegation will meet the Chief Minister, the Treasury and Resources Minister, the Minister for Home Affairs, the Minster for the Environment, and the Minister for Economic Development, as well as representatives of Jersey’s fisheries, agriculture and financial services industries. The delegation will also meet with the Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel and have the opportunity to meet all States Members, as well as representatives from some of the Island’s EU national communities.

The Committee’s final report, which is expected to be published before the triggering of Article 50, will focus on the following three areas:

  • potential opportunities and risks arising from Brexit;
  • constitutional implications of Brexit on the Crown Dependencies;
  • effectiveness of the communication between the UK Government and those of the Crown Dependencies.

Senator Gorst commented: “We are pleased to have this opportunity to invite members of the Justice Select Committee to Jersey to inform them further about the implications for Jersey of the UK’s decision to withdraw from the EU. It will also be an opportunity for States Members, the local business community and the Island’s EU nationals to learn more about the inquiry process.”
