Funding for Jersey's discrimination laws at risk

Funding for Jersey's discrimination laws could be removed under plans for States departments to save money.

The Home Affairs Minister, Senator Ian Le Marquand, has proposed the cut in a bid to reduce spending by 2%.

He told the States he did not see the sense in introducing legislation and setting up a tribunal for funding not to continue after a year.

The scrutiny panel which looks at the department says it wants other money-saving alternatives to be considered.
