Letters Patent for various roles (FOI)

Letters Patent for various roles (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey (for and on behalf of the Judicial Greffe) and published on 25 March 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


I would like to request under the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 copies of the Letters Patent (or equivalent Royal Warrants or similar) appointing
- the Lieutenant-Governor
- the Bailiff
- the Deputy Bailiff
- the Attorney-General (*)
- the Solicitor-General
(*) Unless I've misinterpreted things, it appears that there is currently no A-G and the
S-G is exercising the role (or similar). Whereas in the cases of the other officers I would request the Patent appointing the current incumbent, in the case of a vacant office I would request the Patent appointing the previous one.


relating to the most recent appointment to each post are available at the following link:

Letters patent

Note at the time of the request the new Attorney-General had not been sworn in therefore we include the Letters for the previous appointment.
