Guernsey States publishes first Hansard reports

The States of Guernsey has published its first Hansard reports.

A proposal by the States Assembly and Constitution Committee to publish written transcripts of all States meetings was approved in October 2011.

David Robilliard, the principal officer for the committee, said it was intended that electronic copies of the reports would be the primary method of access to information for politicians.

He said the reports were likely to run to 1,700-2,000 pages each year.

However, Mr Robilliard said paper copies would be printed for those politicians who requested them.

Additionally, printed copies will be placed in Guernsey's libraries and Sir Charles Frossard House.

An electronic copy of all meetings will be made available to the public on the States website .
