Conflict of interest with Sea Cadets (FOI)

Conflict of interest with Sea Cadets (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey on behalf of the States Greffe and published on 12 January 2016.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Why did Connetable Taylor declare a conflict of interest with regard the Sea Cadets?

Further clarification was provided as follows:

On 6th August 2015 The Public Accounts Committee met and discussed Financial this meeting The Sea Cadets Relocation was used as a case study, Connetable C.H Taylor declared a non pecuniary conflict of interest during the course of this enquiry.


After an extensive search, we have not found any information relating to a meeting of the public accounts committee on 6 August 2015 where Connetable Taylor declared a conflict of interest in relation to the Sea Cadets.

We do, however, have a record of a meeting of the public accounts committee dated 26 February 2015 where “The Committee noted a declaration of interest from Connetable C.H. Taylor as a member of the Jersey Sea Cadets”. 

We also have a record of a meeting of the Public Accounts Committee dated 18 May 2015 where  “Connétable C.H. Taylor restated his previously declared indirect conflict of interest regarding the Sea Cadets, having noted that a project to relocate the Sea Cadets to Port Galots, St. Helier was to be raised during the course of the Committee’s public hearings on Financial Directions. The declaration was duly noted by the Committee.”

Copies of the minutes of these meetings are available in full below.
