After the States debate on progress of the Disability Strategy on Tuesday, Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq spoke to the media. Here’s what he said:
“What we have done in this instance is to approve something that we unanimously agreed, were very much behind, felt was the right things to do, and sent people away to do it.
“And then afterwards, sort of forgotten that those very same people have then been tasked with 101 other things to do as well and they haven’t been given adequate resources to cope with all of it.
“So we deal with things piecemeal. We need to look at them in priority order.”
“One would have liked, two years ago, to be much further ahead than we are now.
“But I don’t want to be downbeat today. I think we need to recognise, for Guernsey and for the States of Guernsey, the huge steps that are being made, and have been made already.
“It’s just that we’re not where we would have wanted to be”.
