This information is not held by the Government of Jersey. Articles 3 and 10(1) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 have been applied.
Digital Jersey Limited was formed in 2012. Since that time meetings will have been held with Ministers / Assistant Ministers however these records are not held centrally. It has been estimated that to undertake a review across all Ministerial departments would exceed the 12.5 hours prescribed by regulation under the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. Such a review would only provide information on meetings where minutes / notes had been taken. Article 16 has therefore been applied.
Please note that States Members do not fall under the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 (the Law).
