IT IS no longer appropriate for the Lt-Governor to approve Sark’s Chief Pleas budget, the island’s Policy Development Team has said.
A report on the island’s Reform Law is to be put to Chief Pleas on 20 January and, while it is for information purposes, members of the Sark government will be able to give feedback on their preferences.
