Statement from the Chief Minister

06 February 2023

​Having received a letter from the External Relations Minister requesting that his responsibility for Financial Services be transferred, the political and legal responsibilities for Financial Services will be transferred to the Chief Minister. 

Deputy Elaine Millar and Deputy Ian Gorst will be appointed as Assistant Chief Minister’s with delegated responsibility for Financial Services and will join a ministerial group with the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister. 

Deputy Ozouf and I have agreed this transfer of responsibility. This will allow him more time to focus on the important work of External Relations, where he has made a positive impact and has identified a busy agenda of work, which he will continue as the Minister.

One of the key objectives for my time as Chief Minister is to restore trust and confidence in Government. As part of this, Ministers must uphold and be seen to uphold the highest standards in all aspects of their lives. 

An important part of my role is to always act in Jersey’s best interests. Importantly, this change ensures that we have strong leadership and focused Ministerial teams for both external relations and financial services in this important year for the Island.
