Centre Party 'to cut spending and fight GST'

THE Centre Party say that they will boost the economy and drastically cut spending rather than increasing the tax burden on Islanders.

THE Centre Party say that they will boost the economy and drastically cut spending rather than increasing the tax burden on Islanders.

In their election manifesto, published on www.centreparty.com, the party say that they will fight against the introduction of both a sales tax and the '20 means 20' package to phase out tax allowances.

Both Senator Paul Le Claire and Kevin Lewis are Senatorial candidates in the upcoming election, and Darius Pearce has announced this week that he will be standing under the party's banner for his campaign as a Deputy for St Helier No 3.

The party also say that they want more candidates to contest as many seats as possible.

Their manifesto covers policies on responsible immigration, fair taxation, community safety, housing policy, environmental development and legal reform.

It says: 'A political party is accountable to its members and the voters.

It can provide the expertise necessary to scrutinise the executive arm of the government.

'It will provide the continuity needed to carry through all the policies to which the voters agree.

'We believe that the Centre Party and its policies will provide all of these requirements.

We are committed to fighting as many seats as possible in the 2005 Senatorial and Deputies elections to enable the residents of Jersey to obtain the representation they deserve and expect.'
