Chief Minister's BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour interview (FOI)

Chief Minister's BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour interview (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 24 August 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Our Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore was interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour by host Emma Barnett on Thursday 14th July. Can you tell me…

Who instigated the interview? Was the interview requested by a States or Government official? If so who? Or did the request come from the BBC or one of their agencies?

If the request came from the BBC or one of their agencies, who at the Jersey end made the decision to accept the Woman's Hour interview invitation?

Was Chief Minister Moore offered any briefing or media training before being interviewed on a BBC National Radio Programme that's listened to by millions?

If no training was offered, will consideration be given to ensure all Jersey Ministers are suitably trained in preparation for such important broadcast interviews?

Can you please publish all internal and external emails (and any other correspondence) that took place between the Chief Minister, other Ministers, GoJ officials, staff and external consultants that involved discussions or comments about the Woman's Hour interview before, during and after the 14th July Programme. 



The BBC instigated the interview.


The Chief Minister.

The BBC provided an advance list of the topics it said the interview would focus on and the Chief Minister was briefed on the topics which were provided.

The Government of Jersey Press Office is currently in the course of conducting media training sessions for Ministers.
