A former Jersey chief minister is to be questioned about pay-offs given to senior civil servants.

A group of politicians will quiz former Senator Terry Le Sueur about the golden handshakes; officially known as "compromise agreements".

Such payments have been given to some departing States employees.

The panel is investigating their use, including a payment of more than £500,000 given to the former Chief Executive of the States.

The public accounts committee has already heard from the former chief minister, Frank Walker and current Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst.

It has also spoken to Treasury Minister Senator Philip Ozouf.
