Nov 09, 2020


"The Council of Ministers, chaired by me, met yesterday (5th Nov 2020) with the Chief Executive to understand his position with NewRiver, a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange. After listening to his comments, the Council continues to assert that the non-executive role is not compatible with his duties as Chief Executive at this time.   

"The Council of Ministers is the political leadership of the Government and is not the employer of the Chief Executive. The Council also recognise that this is a matter between the Employer and the Chief Executive.

"Subsequently, the States Employment Board, chaired by the Vice-Chair Connétable Buchanan, met with the Chief Executive today as his employer. They will be writing to him with their position. The letter is confidential.   

"I cannot comment any further on this employment matter."
