    cigarette butts

    A Guernsey politician wants to know how many people have been fined for dropping cigarette butts in the past year.

    During a recent campaign, 75,000 cigarette butts were collected by members of the public.

    Deputy Lindsay de Sausmarez says dropping cigarette butts is a littering offence that can result in a £75 fixed penalty notice.

    The South East Deputy is asking the Committee for Home Affairs how many fixed penalty notices have been issued in the last 12 months and in the last five years.

    She wants to know how frequently the police run campaigns targeting littering and how adequately resourced the force is to enforce the law effectively on a day-to-day basis.

  2. Airport security delays lead to frustration

    Security delays

    A politician has questioned the efficiency of Guernsey Airport's security, which he feels could be affecting tourist's view of the island.

    Deputy John Gollop said he has been "compelled" to ask questions of the board in charge of the airport after the significant number of complaints on social media.

    Guernsey Airport said it is looking to introduce technology that could reduce the requirement for physical bag checks at the airport and help address concerns raised by passengers.

    G4S, the security firm responsible for Guernsey airport, explained that the more stringent requirements being applied for searches are in order to comply with UK aviation regulatory standards.

    Quote Message: Ensuring the safe travel of passengers travelling through Guernsey airport is our primary concern and of utmost importance. Security checks are carried out to ensure adherence to strict compliance in accordance to the Civil Aviation Authority and ensures the safety of all passengers and crew on-board. from Simon Haywood Channel Islands Operations Director, G4S

  3. 'Lack of progress' on assisted dying says campaign group

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Jersey campaign group believes the States hasn't made enough progress in discussions about allowing people to take their own lives for medical reasons.

    End of Life Choices Jersey - which believes you should have control over your own death - initiated debate of the topic through a petition it started.

    Members say they are disappointed more progress in the matter hasn't been made - given it's been many months since the minister of health and social services agreed to look into it.

    In States question time this week, Deputy Richard Renouf said he needed more time for his project of research into assisted dying and public consultation on the issue.

  4. Non-EU hospitality work permits given to 20 people

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Twenty people from outside the EU have so far been given a time-limited work permit - allowing them to work in Jersey's hospitality industry for nine months.

    The Jersey Hospitality Association says a further ten applications were being considered at the end of May.

    Candidates have to pass police checks and have at least two years of relevant experience to be granted one of the 150 permits, which were announced earlier this year by the Home Affairs Minister.

    Constable Len Norman says businesses also have to provide accommodation for their new staff - who have to leave for at least three months before being allowed to return.
