Report concerning the removal of the RNLI lifeboat in 2017

Produced by the Office of the Chief Executive
Authored by Sir David Calvert-Smith and published on 11 Aug 2022
Cost: £32,000.00


Statement made by Sir David Calbert-Smith "The possibility that such a report might be produced, and that I might produce it, was known to me in 2019. The events which gave rise to the request are no doubt well-known to the citizens of Jersey. In brief they involve a breakdown in the relationship between the then coxswain and crew of the St Helier All Weather Lifeboat and the Royal National Lifeboat institution (RNLI). This breakdown resulted in two periods in which the port of St Helier was left without an all-weather lifeboat and the fact that since early 2018 there have been two such lifeboats operating at the port."

Preface Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore
