Politicians from Guernsey and Jersey have gathered in the Isle of Man for a new conference to discuss the three similarly administered jurisdictions.

The politicians have gathered for the first Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Crown Dependencies Network Conference.

During the summit, politicians are set to discuss common areas of interest and mutually beneficial forms of cooperation, as well as having the opportunity to network with other politicians and legislature staff.

At this time of political uncertainty it is particularly important to strengthen our relationships with the Commonwealth and Commonwealth jurisdictions who have a lot to offer one another. It is especially the case with our fellow Crown Dependencies and jurisdictions with similar relationships with the UK and EU.

Deputy's plan for drugs testing in Jersey

BBC Radio Jersey

People in Jersey could be able to take illegal or unknown drugs to the health department for testing if a politician's scheme is approved.

Deputy Montfort Tadier questioned the Home Affairs Minister about the possibility of introducing such a scheme in the States this week.

He thinks people should be able to surrender drugs to be tested, without worrying about any legal repercussions.

The minister, Constable Len Norman, says he's happy to have a conversation about how to reduce harm from these types of drugs.

It comes after batches of unusually strong drugs were recently linked to five people being hospitalised in Jersey.
