States’ Work Plan meeting all over in minutes

The special sitting to discuss Stage 1 of the Government Work Plan was deferred as soon as it started, following a motion by Deputy Peter Ferbrache.

Members attending the virtual meeting barely had time to sip their morning cup of tea or coffee, make themselves comfortable at their home desks, and signal that they were 'présent' before it was all over.

The House was scheduled to discuss Stage 1 of the Government Work Plan. However, motion from head of P&R Deputy Ferbrache noted that, following consultation with the States’ Assembly & Constitution Committee and the Presidents of the Principal Committees, it was unanimously agreed that discussion would best be done in-person.  

Under current lockdown arrangements, that is not possible. However, with Stage 3 now confirmed for Monday, the Assembly will be able to reconvene at the Royal Court next Wednesday, when the business on the agenda of the scheduled States meeting is quite short in supply.  

A vote on the motion was over in moments, and that was that. There was just time to advise members to wear face masks, maintain social distancing, and continue to adhere to best practices for handwashing when they attend next week, and then everyone logged off.
