Sark government to be fine tuned

Jeremy La Trobe-Bateman
The deputy seneschal said it made running Chief Pleas much simpler

Work has started to fine tune Sark's new system of government, the deputy seneschal says.

The island held its first fully democratic election a year ago with the 28 conseillers, who sit in Chief Pleas, elected by an island-wide vote.

Jeremy La Trobe-Bateman said he can now see why the changes were necessary, but the system needed a few adjustments.

He said: "It makes the running of Chief Pleas much simpler... there are moves to make a few minor alterations."
