We are delighted that States members have voted to adopt Deputy Geoff Southern’s proposition, which commits the government to making primary healthcare, including GP visits, affordable for vulnerable patients. This is the first step on the way to delivering a primary care system which is free at the point of delivery.

Reform Jersey thanks those States Members that supported our proposition to raise the minimum wage further in 2020. We are disappointed that the States Assembly has chosen not to take positive action to meet its commitment to reduce income inequality. The decision of the majority of States Members not to support this proposition shows how out of touch they are with the harsh reality of living on a low income.

In our 2018 manifesto we pledged to introduce a rent freeze on the social housing sector and research and develop a fair rent regulation system for all sectors. As Minister for Housing and Children, our Party Leader, Senator Sam Mézec was able to introduce a rent freeze for Andium properties in 2018. While this freeze was in place Senator Mézec introduced a cap on the level at which Andium rents can be raised to ensure that they can never be raised by more than 4%. The purpose of this was to provide some level of safeguard to tenants against higher increases.
