Prepared internally, no external costs.
I am writing to ask how much of Jersey's tax money is dedicated to international development and aid. I am aware that 0.7% of UK tax money is spent on this, and would be interested to know how Jersey compares.
The Treasury and Resources Department produces the Annual Financial Report and Accounts and the Annex to the Accounts.
