The Policy & Resources Committee has advised the Bailiff that it has elected Deputy Mark Helyar as Vice-President of the Committee and Deputy Chief Minister.
This follows the recent resignation of Deputy Heidi Soulsby from the Committee.
Deputy Helyar said:
"It is an enormous privilege for me to be elected as Deputy Chief Minister. I look forward to carrying out this role alongside my responsibilities as Treasury lead, particularly at this crucial time where we are preparing to debate our Tax Review recommendations.
Right at this moment, I'm recovering from an operation which is frustrating as I am not able to physically attend meetings and events, but I remain fully engaged and am participating remotely, and I hope to be back on my feet very soon."
The Policy & Resources Committee also formally agreed that Deputy Bob Murray, who was recently elected as the newest member of the Committee, would lead in the areas of Corporate Services and the Government Work Plan.
