Jersey States pressed on cutting number of politicians

A Jersey deputy is calling on the number of States members to be reduced more than current proposals.

St Helier Deputy, Trevor Pitman, has put forward changes to proposals by a States group to cut back the number of senators from 12 to eight.

He wants the States to go further, with numbers cut to six, saying it would save more money.

Plans to reform the structure of the States are under review and could be the subject of a referendum.
