Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 01 February 2021.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Between 1 January 2020 and the present date, please kindly provide a list of all funding provided to the Royal Yacht Hotel or any of its associated companies / entities / subsidiaries.
Please provide both the quantity and nature of the funding in each case (ie amount of
Co-funded Payroll Scheme, amount of grant, amount of Visitor and Accommodation Support Scheme, and so on) and the date that the funding was signed off.
If any funding has been pledged / agreed, but not yet awarded, please also provide details of this.
For any funding that does not form part of an established covid-19 related scheme, please provide the rationale for granting it.
This information is intended to be published as part of wider reporting on the Co-Funded Payroll Scheme, Visitor Accommodation Support Scheme and other Covid-19 economic support subsidies.
The data will be available on www.gov.je by 31 March 2021 (within 12 weeks). We are therefore applying Article 36 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 (Information intended for future publication).
No funding was provided outside of established schemes. The rationale for those schemes is available on www.gov.je in various news releases and the relevant scheme guidance.
Article 36 - Information intended for future publication
(1) Information is qualified exempt information if, at the time when the request for the information is made, the information is being held by a public authority with a view to its being published within 12 weeks of the date of the request.
(2) A scheduled public authority that refuses an application for information on this ground must make reasonable efforts to inform the applicant –
(a) of the date when the information will be published;
(b) of the manner in which it will be published; and
(c) by whom it will be published.
(3) In this Article, “published” means published –
(a) by a public authority; or
(b) by any other person.
Public Interest Test
The release of the data is not considered to be in the public interest because an extensive audit is being carried out on many of the applications to the schemes, meaning some businesses may be required to repay money they have been awarded.
The amounts currently received by the business identified in this request may not turn out to be the final amount it is entitled to, so to publish this information would be inequitable and possibly inaccurate.
Information relating to all businesses receiving funding from the schemes will be published before 31 March 2021 meaning data for all businesses will be made available at the same time.
