Members put forward their own plans for States reform

News | Published:

TWO compromise propositions to address the 'perceived and actual unfairness' to St Helier residents under plans to reform the States were lodged today.

Senator Philip Ozouf has officially submitted a proposition which would retain Option B – which received a majority of votes in the 24 April referendum – but with the addition of an extra Deputy in each of the St Helier districts to bring the total number of States Members to 44.

A proposition lodged by Deputy Trevor Pitman would see the Assembly made up of 46 members – 12 Constables and 34 Deputies.

Meanwhile, Senator Lyndon Farnham said that he was considering lodging an amendment to the proposition to include six Senators in the Assembly to preserve the Island-wide mandate of the office.
