Appointment of the Gambling Commissioner (FOI)

Appointment of the Gambling Commissioner (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 04 January 2016.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


In the ministerial decisions, it States the appointment of a new Gambling Commissioner but fails to name the person.

Can you please advise who this person is and how the decision to appoint this person was reached?

As this is supposed to be about Freedom of Information, it seems that much information is withheld for whatever reason. Can you please advise if there is a plan to actually name people on the website in future when the information is in the public domain - and, if not, why has the decision to withhold this information been taken?

The report attached to the Ministerial Decision, on the right hand side of the webpage, provides all the information requested:
