Membership of the Freemasons (FOI)
Membership of the Freemasons (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 30 December 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
I request a list of all government staff and members of the Government of Jersey who also hold membership with any Freemasonic Lodge or society in Jersey and / or the United Kingdom.
To hold membership in a secret society is a conflict of interest and also lacks public transparency and should be made a matter of public interest.
Information is available in the public domain in response to a previous FOI request. Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
