  4. Double glazing could be allowed on listed buildings

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Owners of listed properties in Jersey could be allowed to install double glazing on their buildings in future, the planning minister told the States during question time.

    Deputy Steve Luce said he was working on a range of legislation dealing with listed buildings including allowing owners to do more work without planning permission.

    Currently many owners of listed buildings have to replace windows like for like and so can't install modern double glazing.

  5. Criticism of Guernsey air fares 'unfair'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Air fares in Guernsey "in real terms" are about the same now as they were in 1984 according to the CEO of Blue Islands, Rob Veron.

    Mr Veron says criticism of high fares are unjustified given the increasing costs of regulation, airport charges and aviation fuel costs.

    He says fares charged by low cost carriers such as Ryanair and Easyjet aren't achievable in Guernsey with a relatively limited demographic.

    Rob Veron
    Quote Message: We had ticket prices to Southampton of £58 in 1984 which isn't that different to what we are paying now. People used to say it was about a third of their monthly salary and in real terms our prices are coming down. from Rob Veron

  6. Jersey Airport to offer air traffic control to other airports

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey Airport can now offer its services as an air traffic controller to other airports across Europe.

    It's been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency meaning it will be able to remotely direct aircraft landing and taking off at other airports around Europe.

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Cyclists equipped with full emergency equipment, including a defibrillator, will be used more often by Guernsey's St John Emergency Ambulance Service at large summer events this year.

    Cycle Responders are volunteers who use specially adapted road bikes which carry all they need in front and rear bags to treat casualties.

    St John say cyclists are faster through crowds than traditional ambulances, so they're able to get to casualties far more quickly.

    A fountain installed in 1888 in Jersey's Central Market has been restored to look the same as it would have when it was first installed.

  12. Home care patients 'concerned' over loss of care

    Chris Rayner

    BBC Radio Jersey Political Reporter

    Clients of the Jersey charity Family Nursing and Home Care are upset they were only given a few days notice their care was to end.

    Senator Andrew Green

    Deputy Geoff Southern said he was concerned patients were losing out because under a new contract with the States that saw the grant cut, the charity was losing staff.

    Jersey's Health Minister says he's doing all he can to ensure those who's care at home has been cancelled are being supported in finding an alternative provider.

    Senator Andrew Green says his department is supporting those who've been affected, but he refused to say it was his policies that were causing the problems when speaking in the States.

  15. 'Literary start' to no confidence debate

    Ryan Morrison

    BBC News Online

    There has been a "literary start" to a debate of no confidence into the chief minister of Jersey, according to Deputy Geoff Southern.

    He commented on Senator Ian Gorst referencing the opening of Tale of Two Cities while defending his record at the start of the debate.

    Deputy Geoff Southern

    Senator Gorst said:"We live in the best of times and the worst of times" to which Deputy Southern replied "how do I love thee chief minister".

    He wasn't the only politician to make liberal use of quotations in his speech. Earlier in the day Deputy Russell Labey paraphrased the bible when asking the Chief Minister about the sacking of Senator Philip Ozouf.

    Deputy Labey reversed the reference in John 15 saying: "Greater love has no man than to lay down his friend to save his own life".
