The President of the Policy & Resources Committee, Deputy Peter Ferbrache, is inviting islanders to an opportunity on Thursday 5 October, to raise questions and discuss the challenges facing Guernsey’s public finances and the potential solutions before the States. Deputy Ferbrache will give a short presentation followed by an open Q&A for members of the community on Thursday 5 October, from 7pm – 9pm, at Les Cotils.
Sustainability of public finances is a thorny subject that will be with us for some time. The third sector had been invited to a Funding & Investment Plan meeting that had been attended by one of our Board members but it would be helpful to have views from a wide range of our members on any future financial decisions the States make as those decisions will affect future spending.
In October, the States will debate the Funding & Investment Plan and Capital Portfolio (and more information on this, including the full policy letter is available at www.ourfuture.gg/public-finances/).
