AGAIN the Guernsey public find it so frustrating about continuing reports in the news media of the white van man situation happening so often in our island. This has been going on for years and still our ‘toothless’ government does nothing to improve this situation and help protect the survival of our building industry. A meeting was called last year by certain deputies and the building industry attended and still nothing has happened, again toothless and afraid to do something about it. Our sister island once again are more intelligent than us and have created laws and licences to control this problem over there. Yet Jersey firms and UK firms can work here with no penalties or licences and yet if Guernsey tradesmen work over there then once again they have to use the Jersey laws to work, an unfair situation.
