Jersey chief minister drops plan to sack planning minister
The future of Jersey's planning minister is secure after the chief minister dropped proposals to sack him.
Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, wanted the States to sack Deputy Rob Duhamel after claiming he could not work with him any more.
He said he withdrew his proposition after "constructive dialogue" with Mr Duhamel meant they could find a way to work together.
He said he "regretted" the way matters had escalated.
Mr Gorst said earlier this month Mr Duhamel did not work well with other ministers who had "lost trust and confidence in him".
But in a joint statement, the two men said they would work together to improve communication.
Mr Duhamel also said he would restrict his involvement in individual planning applications to those where it was "absolutely necessary".
He also told Mr Gorst he would explain clearly to other ministers when he could not discuss decisions due to a conflict of interest.
