Jersey's Council of Ministers agree to 50m of cuts

Jersey's Council of Ministers has agreed to £50m worth of public spending cuts over the next three years.

At an away day last week they agreed to cut the money from the business plans in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

It was made one of the objectives of a comprehensive spending review of health and social services, education, social security and home affairs.

The ministers said the aim was to find as many efficiency savings as possible before deciding on changes to taxes.

They added the money saved was due to go into a contingency fund and to be used to fund growth in essential services.
