Guernsey States agree members' interests changes

The majority of changes to the States of Guernsey members' interests rules have been approved by deputies.

The changes mean States members will have to reveal more details about property they own, companies they are involved in and other income sources.

Three motions were lost after States members raised questions about their wording.

The agreed proposals will be drafted in law before returning to the States for final approval.

During debate a number of deputies referred to the resolutions as "unclear" or "badly written".

It follows the Bailiff last month asking members to take more care when writing reports following an increase in the number of errors.
