Politicians agree to publish interests

Post by GD on Mon 13 Jun 2011, 6:08 pm

THE register of States Members’ property and business holdings will be published, but not until after the elections.

Members agreed this week to publish the register online, which records brief details of the assets of politicians and their partners, but that it should not happen until the next ‘class’ of States Members is sworn in from December.

At the moment, anyone can inspect the register in the States bookshop in Morier House, but it has not been published online.

The register was set up in 2005 and has been published by the JEP – but the law prohibits the States Greffe from putting it on the internet.

But that will change, after Deputy Bob Hill’s proposition to request the States reform committee to come up with law changes necessary to put it on the internet were agreed by 33 votes to nine.

So why wait......
