  "Are you for or against GST and why?" "What are your opinions on a) student grants b) nursery placements" "With the current cuts how important is event-led tourism?" "What would you like the waterfront to be when it is finished?" "What would you do to help first time buyers get on the housing market?"
Ben Shenton 3% on luxury items will provide useful revenue Provision of free nursery places is a lottery Event led Tourism is very important A design brief that is acceptable to Islanders Ensure that demand does not continue to exceed supply
Denise Carroll Against - this is a regressive tax I support the need for student grants I support the JDA in reducing landing fees Open leisure space for both residents and tourists Investigate all possible means of providing 1st time housing
Freddie Cohen An unfortunate but unavoidable tax Adequate nursery care is absolutely essential We should endeavour to encourage other events The public interest put first. Shared Equity Ownership scheme
Geoff Southern We are very much against GST and we vow to rescind it. Investment in student grants is an essential investment in our future Event led tourism is vital but only after we get landing fees down A place that is more green than concrete Using the rent rebate as a deposit to get into the market
Gino Risoli Policies are a diversion Policies are a diversion Policies are a diversion Policies are a diversion Policies are a diversion
Guy de Faye GST is Jersey's cod liver oil Nursery placements are particularly critical in Jersey Funds must be targeted at right sort of event Needs to be spectacular, on a world class level Interested in the proposals for shared equity schemes
James Perchard Concerned about the implications of GST Provide nursery provision to all 3 and 4 year olds Government should support tourism as an investment Should be progressive and forward looking Promote the principle of shared equity
Jerry Dorey Either taxes must be raised, or services cut I can't see any scope for grants to be increased Event-led tourism is clearly important An exciting area with a wealth of community facilities Courageous Planning decisions
Kevin Lewis We are opposed to the introduction of GST. We support growth in privately run nursery places Provide funds directly to the Hospitality Association Development should add to existing amenities Sell off existing States Housing to tenants at reduced rates
Paul le Claire We are opposed to the introduction of GST. We support growth in privately run nursery places Provide funds directly to the Jersey Association Development should add to existing amenities Sell off existing States Housing to tenants at reduced rates
Roger Bisson I am for the introduction of GST Subsidized placements for 3-5 year olds The Island should provide better facilities and attractions Important that the area remains publically accessible Ensuring economic stability
Roy Travert I do not support the introduction of GST I would like to see nursery places provided by the States The way forward is event led tourism Yes to develop it, but No to high rise A system….. where first time buyer means first time buyer
Stuart Syvret I oppose the introduction of GST at this time The states must ensure that a realistic student grant scheme is available Jersey must have event lead tourism If it must be developed it should be as a cultural and artistic ‘quarter’ Firstly control population growth
Terry le Main There are no other viable options More funding to help parents and students for university Need to maintain funding World class development [..] attract world wide attention Sell off housing flats under shared equity
Terry le Sueur In favour of GST at a low rate of 3% We must invest in it. Leave it to the industry experts High quality architecture and a wide range of amenities Sufficient supply of property
