States to spend less on building
The figures indicate spending on non-States projects fell by 12m
Jersey's government expects to spend 5m less of taxpayers' money on major building and projects over the next year.

New figures show spending on schemes like new schools and offices for 2002 to 2004 fell to just under 134m.

The figures indicate spending on non-States projects fell by 12m, from 189m to 177m.

By the end of December next year, it is anticipated 273m will be spent on construction in the island, a fall of over 30m when compared to predictions two years ago.

The figures are published by the Economic Development Committee, which is responsible for monitoring the health of the island's construction industry.
