NEVER has it been so important to preserve Jersey’s ‘long standing’ relationship with the UK, the Chief Minister has said as Prime Minister Theresa May prepares to take the country out of the EU.
Following parliament’s approval of a law allowing the Prime Minister to trigger article 50 – which will set in motion the UK’s formal two-year process of leaving the EU – Senator Gorst said he was keen to strengthen the Island’s ties with the UK.
The minister also stressed that although he will work to protect Jersey’s autonomy, he will not be seeking any constitutional change following Brexit.
Senator Gorst made the comments at the Lieutenant-Governor’s dinner at the Concert Hall at Highlands College, which was held to welcome Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton to his new role.
