  2. Jersey sees mental health emergency call-outs quadruple

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The number of times Jersey emergency services were called to deal with people with mental health issues have more than quadrupled in four years.

    Figures from a Freedom of Information request show that, in 2014, police or ambulance crews were sent out 97 times to cases involving mentally ill people. Last year, that rose to 412.

    In 2014, officers spent a total of 287 hours on such call-outs. It increased to 1,507 in 2018.

  3. New system of voting for Jersey?

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey could debate a new system of voting if one group gets its way.

    The Privileges and Procedures Committee (PPC) is working on electoral reforms, after a group of independent observers watched last May's general election and made suggestions for change.

    Chair of the PPC, Deputy Russell Labey, says the island's existing first-past-the-post system could be scrapped for some votes.

    He also thinks having constituencies with several seats will encourage more islanders to stand for election.

    Quote Message: At the moment you can just put eight crosses on the ballot paper for senator. But I think it would make sense and be more interesting for both the voter and the politician/candidate if you numbered your choices. One to eight or down to six, or five - however many you wanted. So we would be looking at that. from Deputy Russell Labey Chair of the Privileges and Procedures Committee

    Any changes will have to be approved by the States.

  4. Bid to relax law for Alderney and Sark residents

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    An amendment has been placed to relax the law for Alderney and Sark residents who wish to move to Guernsey.

    The proposal seeks to enable those living in Alderney and Sark to go to Guernsey for education and training at any age too.

    The plans have been submitted by Deputy Dawn Tindall and backed by Alderney's representative, Alex Snowden.

    The proposals - placed by Home Affairs - are due to be debated by the States next week.

  6. Jersey teacher pay row: 'Still room for negotiation'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The president of the Jersey branch of a teachers' union believes there's still room for negotiation with the States over pay.

    The vice chairman of the States Employment Board, Constable Richard Buchanan, went down to talk to protesters in Liberation Square on Tuesday.

    They were taking part in a strike that caused seven States secondary schools to close.

    Brendan Carolan, of the National Education Union, said members were still open to discussions.

    "We are always willing to get round the table, and they have not - in the last week or two - made any contact to suggest they wish to do that," he said.


    The States has said there is no more money to give workers a better pay rise, with Constable Buchanan adding teachers could not expect to get more than workers elsewhere.

  8. Staff concerns behind children's service being pulled

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A second Jersey care organisation is stopping its children's short break services due to a lack of staff.

    New Horizons gives social care and respite services for children and adults, as well as holidays for people with learning and physical disabilities.

    The organisation said it had taken the difficult decision to cut the services because it did not have enough staff and had struggled to find a permanent base.

    It comes after charity Les Amis announced it would stop its community outreach and short breaks services. The learning disability charity also cited not being able to find enough qualified care workers.

    New Horizons' children's services will stop from the end of May, but adult services would continue as normal, it said.

  9. Deputy questions ex-police boss appointment

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The appointment of Guernsey's former head of law enforcement to a new government position managing properties has been called into question.

    Deputy Victoria Oliver has submitted a series of written questions to the States over the appointment of Patrick Rice as head of States of Guernsey Real Estate.

    In November 2018, it was announced Mr Rice would be stepping down as Guernsey's most senior police officer and taking on the new position in the new year, until 2021.

    Patrick Rice

    Chartered surveyor Deputy Oliver has now called into question Mr Rice's suitability for the role and the advertising process.

    She said she believed someone with more experience in property would be more suited to the role, created to get the best value from States-owned property.

    In its response to her questions, the States Trading Supervisory Board said that, because of the level of property experience already in the department, the core requirement for the job was leadership and change-management skills.
