The Council of Ministers has presented its new Ministerial Code of Conduct and Practice
(“the Ministerial Code”) to States Members.
In developing its new Ministerial Code, the Council has reviewed arrangements from
previous governments and best practice elsewhere, and made improvements intended to
be valuable and constructive.
This includes improvements around governance and probity, such as how government
manages conflicts of interest, and a new provision to promote safeguarding. It also
includes more guidance on the orderly and professional conduct of government, including
how the Council of Ministers makes and communicates decisions.
The Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, said: “This government should continually
improve, working constructively and effectively with States Members as we deliver for
“Jersey needs a government that works professionally, in a well-governed environment
with the highest standards of conduct, explaining clearly what we are doing. This new
Ministerial Code sets a framework to help us do that”
