End of an Era – Our Environment Dept passes into history

IMG_0679John Young
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.

Thank you

I would like to thank all constituents and supporters who have encouraged and helped me throughout the years , in preparation for todays election for Jersey environment minister.

It was good to have an election and I want to put on record my thanks and acknowledgment of the fine work done by Deputy Luce in the rural environment . It was a very close result indeed 24-23 in my favour with 1 abstention .  Probably the agenda for future urban and planning policy made the small difference between us . I will do very best to fulfil the trust placed in me today.

I am very proud to have been nominated by John for Environment Minister , a role which I have been aspiring to and working for ever since first elected in 2011 and my work subsequently . I am pleased that there is almost certainly going to be another nomination , which reflects the importance of this role for Jersey. It is good for democracy that the merits of candidates and policy issues are weighed up by members . The election is likely to be this afternoon. I am going to give it my very best .
