Prepared internally, no external costs.
I request the sterling balance of the following ring-fenced funds, as at 31 December 2018:
Health Insurance (Medical Benefit) (General Provisions) (Jersey) Order 1967, as amended on 1 October 2018.
Medicines (Jersey) Law 1995, revised edition 2.625, 1 January 2018.
The information requested is publicly available on page 285 of the Annual Report and Accounts of the States of Jersey which can be found in the following link:
Annual Report and Accounts 2018
For ease, it is confirmed that the net asset balance quoted in the Report as at the end of 2018 was £93,979,000.
The Medicines (Jersey) Law 1995 is “a law to make provision with respect to medicinal products and related matters and for purposes connected therewith”. There is no reference to a specific ring-fenced fund being set up by this legislation.
