Guernsey treasury boss to support spending

Guernsey's Treasury and Resources Minister has predicted the States will choose to spend the money it has saved.

An estimated £1.8m has been saved by implementing the island's Financial Transformation Programme.

Deputies will be asked to spend this on nine new capital projects at a States Strategic Plan sitting from 11 October.

Deputy Martin Storey will request that the island's deficit be reduced instead but Deputy Charles Parkinson said he doubted the move would win any favour.

He said: "I actually wonder whether it'll even be debated, to be honest.

"What Policy Council has recommended to the States is a sensible package of proposals," he said, "so I'm going to support it."
