Deputy labels exclusion rules as ‘ambiguous and ill-defined’

Politics | Published: | Last Updated:

EXCLUSION rules which stopped two Education committee members from taking part in college funding discussions are ‘ambiguous, ill-defined and procedurally flawed’, according to one deputy.

Rob Prow (19236736)

Deputies Carl Meerveld and Andrea Dudley-Owen were not allowed to participate in talks with the colleges because they ‘have or will have children attending the colleges as fee-payers’.

This was considered to be a ‘special interest’ under rule 49 of the States’ rules of procedure, and the committee was reduced to three members in their absence.

South-East deputy Rob Prow said this chain of events had highlighted everything that was wrong with the current exclusion rules.
