Work on States of Guernsey continues after resignation

Jeremy Coleman
In his report Coleman said there was not clear, corporate leadership

Work to improve the States of Guernsey will not be affected by the resignation of the head of the Wales Audit Office, the Public Accounts Committee has said.

Auditor General Jeremy Colman left his job following a personal conduct inquiry.

He authored a critical report last year and was involved in the ongoing work.

Chairman Leon Gallienne said although they had direct dealings with him his departure would have no impact on the work of the committee.

The Wales Audit Office report concluded the States failed to fully comply with the six principles of good governance.

It said taxpayers were not getting good value of money from the island's system of government and there was no clear, corporate leadership.

Deputy Gallienne said he was only made aware of Mr Colman's resignation through the media.
