Transport and parking used by States Members (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey on behalf of the States Greffe and published on 02 November 2018.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Are there any statistics for how many States Members (outside of St Helier) regularly use Public Transport when attending States sittings, broken down by Parish?
While a member may occasionally need to use a car, I'm trying to ascertain the general use of public transport aside from exceptions.
How many States members park at Snow Hill (and are issued permits to do so)?
How many civil servants have reserved spaces in St Helier for parking? Are these paid spaces?
A and B
Individual States members are themselves not covered by the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and do therefore not have any obligations under the Law and are not listed as a scheduled public authority.
The States Greffe does not hold information on the use of public transport by States members or on the use of Snow Hill car park by States members. However, the States Greffe does hold information on the number of parking permits issued to States members. At the time this response was published, 44 such permits had been issued.
This information has been supplied in response to previous Freedom of Information (FOI) requests and is therefore exempt under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. The previous FOI responses can be viewed at the following links:

Article 23 - Information accessible to applicant by other means
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it is reasonably available to the applicant, otherwise than under this Law, whether or not free of charge.
(2) A scheduled public authority that refuses an application for information on this ground must make reasonable efforts to inform the applicant where the applicant may obtain the information.
This response has been issued on behalf of the States Greffe. The States Greffe is responsible for the information held by (and on behalf of) both itself and the States Assembly. Neither the States Assembly nor the States Greffe form part of the Government of Jersey and the Government was not involved either in the examination and retrieval of any information required for this response, nor in the drafting of the response itself.
