COMMITTEE WORK

States Members have 3 distinct roles. We are members of parliament (the States of Guernsey) and meet to approve laws and debate policies every 3 to 4 weeks. The States governs through Committees, which usually meet in private, and we may be elected to one or more Committee during our political terms. Finally, we do independent constituency work, representing parishioners from our district, or indeed any islander who approaches us for assistance, as far as we are able to. If you need to access it, our Rules & Code of Conduct are here, and more information about how we use your data is here. This page summarises the Committees I am (or have been) a member of, and how you can find out more about our work.

STATES’ ASSEMBLY & CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE

I was an ordinary member of the Transport Licensing Authority (more information) from May 2016 until September 2017.

I resigned because two other Committees I sat on (Health & Social Care and Employment & Social Security) had a role in securing air ambulance and medevac services for Alderney and Guernsey which required ongoing negotiations with air operators. I wished to avoid any risk of a conflict of interest between those roles.
