The Council of Ministers is holding the third of its planned ministerial drop-in meetings next week.
The session will be on Monday 14 September from 12.30 - 2pm at St Paul’s Centre in St Helier. People can drop in at any point within the allotted time and speak personally to the Chief Minister and a number of other Ministers about any issues that concern them.
The other ministers attending on Monday are Senators Alan Maclean and Andrew Green; Deputies Kristina Moore, Steve Luce, Susie Pinel and Anne Pryke. This meeting is part of a series of online question and answer sessions, public drop-ins and community meetings which are being held to explain policy decisions to islanders and to listen to their concerns.
Answer public questions online
The next Ask the Minister online session will be run by the Social Security Minister, Deputy Susie Pinel, on Twitter from 5pm - 6pm on Tuesday 15 September. These sessions are being held monthly, with each minister taking their turn to answer questions online.
The next Community meeting, attended by all ministers, will be held in St Mary in November. Ministers will be available to explain any decisions, to answer questions and listen to views from the audience. People attending the meetings in parish venues will be able to ask their questions in person, or they can submit them in writing on the night, using forms and a collection box provided.
These opportunities for Islanders to explain their concerns and question ministers directly are being arranged to support the Council’s aim to communicate directly with Islanders.
