Government Plan 2021-24 events announced

Nov 06, 2020


Ministers will be answering public questions about the Government Plan during a week of live events. While the usual open public meetings cannot take place due to COVID-19 restrictions on the size of gatherings, events will be held with a small audience and broadcast online.

The five sessions will take place every evening between Monday 23 November and Friday 27 November between 7pm and 8.30pm, and will be broadcast on the Government of Jersey’s YouTube, Twitter and Facebook channels.

The sessions were originally scheduled to run during the week of 9 November and have been rescheduled to allow for an additional sitting of the States Assembly on Tuesday 10 November. The re-scheduled dates will ensure that Ministers are available to engage with the public.

Each session will focus on a different theme, and different Ministers will be available to answer questions.

Islanders can get involved in several ways:

  • Apply to be in the audience by sending an email to GovPlan2021@gov.je with their name, age, and parish or by calling (01534) 440800
  • Submit questions in advance by sending an email, or a video of themselves asking a question to GovPlan2021@gov.je or by calling (01534) 440800
  • Ask questions during the event, by visiting Sli.do and using the event code #GovPlan2021 to ask a question

During the sessions, a host will be taking questions from the audience in-person, and sharing questions asked in advance and via Slido.

Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré, said: “The outbreak of COVID-19 means that we’ve naturally had to re-consider how we can give Islanders the opportunity to engage with the Government Plan, while using the technical tools we have to allow people to stay safe.

“Although these events may look different than last year’s events, they will still be an excellent opportunity to find out more about the Government Plan 2021. I’d urge Islanders to get involved, whether by applying to be in the audience, submitting questions, or by tuning in online.”

The sessions will be available on the Government of Jersey YouTube channel, and on the Government of Jersey Facebook page.
