With a week left until it closes, 408 members of the community have taken part in a survey inviting suggestions for how they believe the cost of public services should be reduced. Between them, they have provided 911 suggestions so far.
The public survey is part of the research being carried out by the Reducing the Cost of Public Services Sub-Committee which is also engaging with States Committees and individual Deputies. The Sub-Committee is working to deliver recurring cost reductions of at least £10m - £16m per annum, within 5 years.
The Sub-Committee has also been inviting suggestions from public sector employees through a separate internal survey. This has also seen high levels of engagement with 149 people making a total of 296 suggestions so far, bringing the total number of suggestions from both surveys to more than 1,200.
The survey is open until Friday 14 July so there is still plenty of time to submit your suggestions.
It is available at www.gov.gg/costreductionpublicsurvey.
People can also submit their suggestions by post by writing to:
