Deputy Heidi Soulsby resigns from the Policy & Resources Committee

Share this page

Tuesday 25 October 2022

The following is a statement issued jointly on behalf of the five members of the Policy & Resources Committee: Deputy Peter Ferbrache, Deputy Heidi Soulsby, Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq, Deputy Mark Helyar and Deputy Dave Mahoney.

The Policy & Resources Committee can confirm that Deputy Heidi Soulsby has today tendered her resignation from the Committee of which she is Vice-President.

Deputy Soulsby wrote to the President of the Committee, Deputy Ferbrache, earlier today.  The letter read:

"It is with regret that I tender my resignation as Vice President of the Policy & Resources Committee. It has been obvious for quite a while that my views and advice have not been valued by some on the Committee and I think there is little point in me continuing in the hope that things may get better.

I thank you personally for inviting me on to the Committee after the last election. However, two years on, I now believe I will be able to make more of a positive contribution to the future of Guernsey outside of the Committee."

Following the tendering of Deputy Soulsby's resignation, Deputy Ferbrache said:

"I'm sorry to receive Deputy Soulsby's letter of resignation but I respect her decision.  I want to express my thanks to her as I believe she has made a valuable contribution to this Committee in the last two years."

Deputy Soulsby has written separately to the Bailiff and further details on the process for appointing a new member of the Policy & Resources Committee will follow in due course.  Deputy Soulsby will continue in her role as Vice-President of the Committee until a new member is appointed.

At this current time none of the five members of the Committee will be giving interviews on this topic.
