Views Wanted On Government Spending Plans

Our views are wanted on the government's proposals to spend £914 million next year and more than £1 billion by 2023.

The Government Plan sets out increased spending whilst also saving £100 million over four years.

Other parts of the plan include tackling its five strategic priorities, new funding to tackle climate change (partly paid for by an increase in fuel duty) and tax increases on alcohol and tobacco.

The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel -  led by Senator Kristina Moore - is keen to know what islanders think.

"The Government Plan shows that government spending will rise to over £1 billion by 2023. We want to know what Islanders think about this. Is the government targeting taxpayers’ money in the right places? Do Islanders mind paying more for petrol in order to fund work to tackle climate change? What about the 1% increase to the Long Term Care Charge? Is the Government right to spend much larger amounts than in previous years on infrastructure projects and internal government modernisation?

"Many of the proposals in the Government Plan will directly impact on Islanders in 2020 and beyond. It is important that we hear the views of members of the public, local businesses and other interested groups. We encourage islanders to get in touch with us on social media or by writing to us directly."
