Reminder to Come and ‘Meet the Ministers’

Nov 23, 2018


Islanders are reminded to come along next week to meet members of the Council of Ministers at two public events, where senior politicians will explain government’s plans for their time of office.

Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré, will host both evenings, joined by various members of the Council of Ministers. The ministers will speak about their proposals for next year’s budget and the work they plan to prioritise for their four years in office. Islanders will then be able to ask any questions that they have, or put forward any concerns that they would like ministers to respond to.

The first ‘Meet the Ministers’ event was held earlier this month at St Paul’s Centre and provided a great opportunity for Ministers to meet the public and to discuss current issues. Next week’s events will provide another chance for islanders to learn about, and discuss, the issues that affect them.

All islanders are welcome to attend on:

  • Tuesday, 27 November, 7pm to 8.30pm at St Clement’s Parish Hall
  • Thursday, 29 November, 7pm to 8.30pm at St Bernadette’s Church Hall, St Brelade (next to Communicare)

The ministers attending St Clement on Tuesday, 27 November will be:

  • Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré
  • Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture, Senator Lyndon Farnham
  • Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf
  • Minister for Children and Housing, Senator Sam Mézec
  • Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis
  • Minister for International Development, Deputy Carolyn Labey.

Those attending St Bernadette’s Church Hall on Thursday, 29 November will be:

  • Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré
  • Minister for the Environment, Deputy John Young
  • Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture, Senator Lyndon Farnham
  • Minister for Education, Senator Tracey Vallois
  • Minister for Home Affairs, Connétable Len Norman.

Further events will be arranged next year for islanders to hear about the Government Plan.
