Guernsey's States deputies are offered more training

Guernsey politicians have been offered training in handling the media, dealing with civil servants and speaking in front of the assembly.

The States Assembly and Constitution Committee previously held induction programmes for new members in the days following their election.

However, its new chairman Deputy Matt Fallaize, who was elected in May, has launched a more extensive programme.

He said previously deputies had been just "left to get on with it".

Deputy Fallaize said the training would be provided by civil servants and would be "no great cost".
