simplifying and modernising our island’s laws
Today the Jersey Law Commission publishes a consultation paper seeking input into its thinking on how to improve administrative redress in the island. This covers situations where a person, organisation or business is aggrieved by a decision taken by a Minister, civil servant, Parish or other public body. The report examines internal complaints processes, tribunals, appeals to Ministers, the States of Jersey Complaints Panel, a proposal for a new public services ombudsman, the role of the Royal Court and alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
The consultation period runs for 3 months to 29 July 2016: we welcome responses from individuals and organisations. For details of how to obtain the report and submit a response, please visit our consultation page.
