ED member foresees problems if vision paper is not backed
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT will be a ‘toothless tiger’ if its vision paper does not get approved in its current form, one of its remaining committee members has warned.
The committee has lost three of its original members in as many months, with Deputy Jennifer Merrett the latest to announce her resignation.
Its former president, Deputy Peter Ferbrache, resigned at the end of November, while vice-president Jan Kuttelwascher stood down last month after losing out to Deputy Charles Parkinson in securing the top job.
Only deputies Joe Mooney and Andrea Dudley-Owen remain from the original five members, whose economic vision paper is set to go before the States next week.
Deputy Joe Mooney said that, at this moment in time, no decisions had been taken to change their green paper.
