It was a joy for me in my role as Minister and Greg as Assistant Minister to join the environment team at their summer event. I was surprised to learn from Chief Officer Andy Scate’s surprise announcement of an email he had received only that day instructing him that Friday was the end of an era – the Environment Department is no more. It has joined the list of States departments. passed into history i.e IDC, agriculture and fisheries , as a result of States organisational change. Since 1960’s Jersey has had a Department dedicated to the stewardship of our island, and built up huge expertise and several generation of quality teams. Thank fully they will be still be there but under new management. It will be for us as Jersey politicians to make sure our environment remains a priority.
