Jersey Treasury Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, says he does not "necessarily agree" with future recommendations for spending cuts.

He said: "I don't actually think a States-wide pay freeze would be necessarily the right or fair thing to do."

The States plan to cut an extra £31m from the budget over the next three years.

That is on top of the £12m already earmarked for cuts by ministers.

Ministers will publish their budget proposals and plans to raise taxes at the end of the month.
