Personal Statement

I have flown the flag for common sense over ideology and the respect for the public purse. I am President of the States Assembly and Constitution Committee. After the Referendum it fell to me to put together a team to deliver the Island’s first ever Island Wide General Election. Against all odds my team delivered that Referendum result. The next four years will be about the economy, education and employment.

  • Pragmatism over idealism
  • Economy at the Centre of Government
  • If we haven’t got it, we shouldn’t spend it
  • Do what we need, not what we want
  • Public money is taxpayer’s money
  • Tourism: I’m in the business
  • Small business: I know how hard it is
  • When government gets it wrong, fess up

Manifesto

When first elected I promised the public a fierce defence of Guernsey, its people, its culture and its way of life. I kept my word.

Having spent my life in business, creating employment opportunities, I know two things; how difficult it is to earn money and how easy it is to spend it. “There is no such thing as public money, there is only taxpayer’s money” a Prime minister once said.

As someone who was elected to represent the People, in every debate and at every Committee meeting, in every vote I have scrutinised and put value-for-money first.

The next few years will not be easy. Your elected representatives will need to hold their nerve and you will need to elect individuals that you can trust.

EDUCATION

I fought hard for the Grammar School system of education and scholarships. I deeply regret the decision made by the States. However, that decision has been made and I would be flying a ‘false flag’ to promise a support to the return to selection.

What is clear is the two-school model is dead. Rejected by teaching professionals and the public, we are looking at a version of three schools. If the public and the teachers want ‘community schools’ as I have always argued, then there will need to be compromises by all sides.

Education is critical to all Islanders and sadly individuals within this government have used the teachers and children as a political football. The new government must come together and fix this omnishambles.

The sooner we hand over the running of the schools to a Governorship the better. My red line is the split of the 6th form over multiple sites. The 6th form works well – let’s keep it!

FISCAL POLICY

If a fiscal policy is the method by which a government adjusts its spending levels and tax rates to influence the economy, Guernsey’s is not working as well as it could. What is required is a genuine and open public conversation:

  • What kind of services do we want the government to provide?
  • What role can the charitable sector play in providing services?
  • What is the difference between ‘what we want’ and ‘what we need’?

Once we have established those first principles:

  • How do we effect that transformation in four years?
  • What are you prepared to pay for it?

I am certain that the right people in new positions can have that conversation and I am more than prepared to put myself at the centre of it.

ECONOMY - Tourism Marketing

2021 will be crucial to the reinvigoration of the Guernsey brand. The message is clear from the tourism sector - ‘get visitors to Guernsey and we will get them spending’.

If returned on October 7th I will seek a full term on the Committee for Economic Development and will put myself forward for a role to lead portions of ‘Revive and Thrive’.

ECONOMY - Tourism Hotels

There is a lot of investment going on in Guernsey. Glamping sites in St Peters, a new hotel in Town and, potentially, large development on the West Coast - a lot of good news stories. I am of the view that hotels, guesthouses, and self-catering that cannot make a living need a way out of the sector. We need to move the conversation on.

ECONOMY - Aurigny

Aurigny is key to the vibrancy of the 2021 tourism season. I have made statements and arguments in the States along the lines of “Aurigny should not be carting air around, if it has spare capacity then fill those seats”.

As we move towards Easter, I will push for cheaper airfares into the Island to fill the beds. We have one opportunity and it is in our hands. Aurigny must act as an economic enabler and prepare for a great 2021.

ECONOMY - Population

The Population Management Regime has worked for the Island up to a point. But, in my view, it needs to be more ‘economy facing’ than ‘population control’.

The Island needs to focus on younger and more vibrant businesses. I will support and promote new business into the Island and assist the entrepreneurial spirit, and if it means a limited lift in population then so be it. Business brings jobs.

IN THE STATES

Harbour Requete

I led a successful Requete that directed the States to focus on a harbour development that will ensure Guernsey’s security for many years to come.

L’Ancresse Tank Wall - Sursis

I led a Sursis to stop the States ruining one the Island’s pristine beaches. Eventually the project was stopped by Requete.

Inert Waste - Sursis

I led a sursis to try and get government to reassess this project. In the first debate I told the house ‘only in Guernsey would we build a hole in the sea when we have holes in the ground’

The filling in of Longue Hougue South is an environmental disaster waiting to happen. The loss of eel grass, habitat and the destruction of our intertidal zone needs reassessment.

Government’s ability to cost any significant infrastructure development is fatally flawed and I hope that a new Assembly would consider Les Vardes as the most practical environmental and fiscal solution for the Island’s long-term requirements.

Answers to questions proposed by the public:

Most of the detailed work of the States is done in committees, like the Committee for Environment and Infrastructure. What experience do you have of being on a committee and how did you contribute?

I am the President of the States Assembly and Constitution Committee; our Committee delivered on the result of the Referendum.

With unemployment currently running at an all time high, what measures would you like in place to ensure local people are offered jobs before license holders ?

Under the Population Management Law, work permits are issued based on the industry need. I have faith that the unemployment figures will reduce. But if they don't it will be for the Population regime to restrict permits.

I live in St Peter Port but have interests in the Vale, St Peters and Castel. Will you be looking at Island Wide issues or more so in your Parish of residence?

As a sitting Deputy I have supported all Islanders on various personal issues over the last four years. If re-elected I will apply the principles.

Are you concerned about the large amount of agricultural land that is being lost for private gardens?

Having successfully applied to have a 30mx30m patch of 'agricultural land' included in my curtilage, I will declare an interest. I accept that this is an issue and may need a review.

You will make many commitments as a politician, but how will you actually ensure these are achieved? If you have been a deputy before, what will you do differently this term to improve achievements?

The first duty of a Deputy is, in my view, as 'keeper of the public purse' and scrutineer. No one will ever say 'Neil Inder just sat back and let things happen'

What are your opinions on climate change and Guernsey's role in tackling it?

We have a responsibility, certainly, but in the scheme of things limited influence, sadly. We must paly our part but in the recognition that we are a small Island with limited impact.

What are the attributes and skills you will be looking for in the next President of the Policy & Resources Committee?

I will be looking for the ability to take not only the Assembly with him or her, but the People as well. At a tactical level with both internal an external threats not only will I be seeking decisiveness and strength but some humility.

If the independent Cost Benefit Analysis supports lengthening the airport runway, would you vote in favour of investing in this key element of island infrastructure?

Tourism is my sector and I recognise the value of strong air links. Personally I believe the States have got this the wrong way around. The elephant in the room is Aurigny and I'm not sure we know what we want it to be. It is costing the tax payer millions a year and has got substantially worse over the Covid crisis; that's where we need to start. I'd be unlikely to support an extension to the runway until I was assured that we aren't just running up a hill to another political mirage.

Do you believe that diversification of the island's tax base is an important consideration for Guernsey in today's volatile and fast-moving global economy? If so, how can this specifically be achieved for Guernsey?

Some will say the 20% tax threshold is sacred, others will say GST is regressive and other politicians will tell you 'they need more resources'. We can't have it all ways. The Island needs a conversation about it's future requirements and its fiscal policy. This needs to be a whole Island conversation about where we are, what we need and what is just a political 'want'.

What are the candidates' views on maternity pay and leave and how would they improve the current arrangements, if at all?

It's not an area I have much knowledge in.

I believe Guernsey needs a vision; a forward-thinking concept for the future of the island’s infrastructure, community wellbeing and economy. What’s yours?

One of the most successful infrastructure programmes was the North Beach and the North Beach Marina. We are a maritime nation and I would like to see an expansion of those facilities and expansion of our marine services industry.

Do you agree that people should be encouraged to use cars less and if so what measures would you like to see introduced to achieve this?

Car ownership is a reality of life in Guernsey. Government encourages us to engage in society, move our kids around to sporting events etc and I'm afraid the car is the only real option for many/most. I'm not particularly happy with that, but that is the reality. I've been brought up on motorbikes and that is my main mode of transport; efficient, cheap to run and economical. Government could do more to encourage m/bile use.

Do you support outsourcing of States services?

The charitable sector and the private sector could play greater roles in some areas of government. Does that mean I would privatise hospitals, harbours and airports? No it doesn't. All I'm saying is government needs to look at itself before looking for more funding from the taxpayer.

What will you do to educate the islanders about the reality of the climate crisis which is the biggest threat currently facing the world?

Climate change impact should be a consideration in any future Policy Letter. I have made that point a number of times in the Inert Waste Strategy debates that now mean we will lose 10% of our eel grass and a huge area of inter-tidal habitat.

Most environmental problems are caused by the love of growth. Would you consider de-growth?

Guernsey has largely de-industrialised since the end of the growing industry; we lose less chemicals on our land and have become a cleaner society. 'De-growth' sounds like to recession to me and I won't support any policy that disproportionately hits the middle earning Guernsey family.

What intra island transport strategy would you support to ensure safe and ‘clean’ travel on island for all road users, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists? And how do you plan to deliver that plan financially?

The Transport Strategy needs to come back to the States for a review. It's 7 years old now and needs a refresh.

What environmental policies would you support to reduce Guernsey’s reliance on the internal combustion engine, in support of International global warming initiatives?

Largely I'd let the market decide. European car manufacturers are signalling the end of the combustion engine; the ICE looks to be on the way out.

What measures will you put in place during the next term to ensure that environmental biodiversity will be protected and enhanced?

We've recently adopted the bio diversity strategy. Perversely a joint paper between the Environment and Infrastructure and the STSB will signal the end of Spur point and its rich habitat. I will extremely hard to see if we can do a deal with the owners of Les Vardes quarry as an Inert Waste solution.

The Guernsey Press had an article and a picture of a proposed East Coast development called HYDROPORT. It seemed to me to be a brilliant plan and included a new deep water harbour, a hydro electric supply by enclosing Belgrave bay and changes to St Peter port harbour to accommodate cruise liners and super yachts. It would provide jobs, produce an ongoing and substantial revenue stream and make us to some extent self-reliant on electricity, why has there been no update on this project?

The Plan was a commercial vision and never came to the States as a proposal.

Do you agree that there is a climate crisis caused predominantly by the actions of humans?

Yes

Longue Hougue has been proposed as a site for inert waste disposal despite it being a site of international importance in terms of wildlife. La Societe Guernesiase and other scientists have advised against this. What will you do to ensure that this valuable habitat is protected?

I have voted against this environmental disaster every time it has reached the States. I brought a sursis to try and get the States to reassess the waste forecasts – that sursis lost. . In the event of the public returning a more pragmatic and solution-finding government, my preferred choice would be to work with Ronez to identify Les Vardes as our long term inert waste solution.

What is your view on current spending on Aurigny, is it worth how much we are paying? Is it run efficiently? Did we need new aircraft?

I have little or no confidence in Aurigny's management and voted against the underwriting of the three new aircraft. There is a new team in place and a new STSB who is the shareholder on behalf of the States of Guernsey needs to act with some swiftness to get some 'system grip' on that company.

If elected, would you fully support the retention, repair and ongoing maintenance of the Sea Defences provided by the anti-tank wall at L’Ancresse Bay?

No one fought harder than me against Environment and Infrastructure's ludicrous plans to demolish the wall. By Requete it was eventually agreed to leave it for 10 years. If the sections start coming apart before then, the good old Guernsey solution would be boulders.

A significant proportion of the concerns about the two college model of secondary education related to the capital costs and space standards: they could have been addressed with higher spending. Would you be prepared to spend more money on the future model of secondary education than previously agreed by the States in September 2019? If so, how much more?

I supported the Pause and Review. It's fairly clear that neither the teaching staff nor the public support the 1 school two site model. My red line is the split of the sixth form over two sites. That was a sub optimal idea when the States agreed that and it remains sub optimal today.

With the general increase in costs of running the island and with various capital projects requiring funding; and with limitations on the amount that islanders can be taxed; do you think that it may be time to revisit the 0-10 tax scheme that created a big black hole in the island's finances?

A summit between Jersey, Guernsey and the IOM would be useful. Zero/10 has not worked for public finances at all and if politicians brighter than me can effect a rational package that does not risk our finance industry, I would support it.

If elected, what priority will you give to the introduction of the already-drafted consumer protection legislation?

I was not aware that a Policy Letter existed.

Did you know that same-sex families aren't treated equally when it comes to registering the birth of a child? What will you do to change that?

I supported the Deputy Merret and Alderney Rep. Snowden amendment to address this.

Would you support a programme of privatisation of island utilities and other facilities such as Beau Sejour to help reduce record levels of borrowing resulting from the cost of Covid defences?

Privatisation of utilities seems seductive but our record on it - Guernsey Telecoms - isn't great. I'm not a fan of the privatisation of profit and the socialising of debt; in the end the consumer is often worse off and government saves nothing.

Increasing home working will likely result in surplus office space. Will you encourage an urgent revision of Planning Policies to facilitate conversion of retail and office space to residential & curb green-field development?

Under the IDP plan there is no correlation between greater residency in Town and saving of green field or vinery sites as Housing Allocation areas. I agree that that tertiary office accommodation should be allowed to leave the sector post-haste and I also believe the IDP needs to come back to the States for reconsideration.

What is your attitude towards enhanced and mandatory registration, chipping and DNA recording of dogs and control of their fouling, island-wide?

I'm a dog owner and as irritated as anyone seeing mess around the Island. DNA testing by government looks like an expensive solution and from the brief research I've done is unlikely to curb the issue. So, in short, I would need some convincing.

I have one question for sitting Deputies and one for new candidates. Deputies:- what, in your mind, was your greatest political achievement in the last four years? New candidates:- What is your biggest political goal in the next four years?

As President of the States Assembly and Constitution Committee, our Committee have delivered the results of the Referendum; the Island's first and historic Island Wide General Election. If I go to my political nadir on October 7th, I will rest easy knowing that I was part of delivering democracy.

How good are your mediation and conciliation skills? The key to the islands well-being and progress is in working together to achieve the projects approved - to see sustainable, innovative solutions. Leadership in pulling the team together to move forward, rather than in circles.

The problem with government is that it has a tendency to want a strategy for everything and ends up doing nothing. My leadership is about work-arounds and doing what can be done.

First time buyers are encouraged to buy new build developments taking up green space, while there are vast amounts of listed properties facing dereliction on the island - buildings ripe for restoration, renovation and to be lived in. Currently, people are put off as they are greeted with stringent and outdated views by The Planning and Heritage Department - it takes too much time and money so are immediately put off. What will you do to change the process for the better?

The best thing a government can do with its property portfolio is lease it out or sell it. If we have many listed buildings lying derelict, and I'm not sure that we have, getting them into some kind of use is good for the building and good for the tenant.

Would you support changes in the law to make cannabis for personal use legal?

We've agreed a review and the Home Department must come back in two years.

In 1945, the generosity of people outside Guernsey enabled the delivery of Red Cross parcels to the island on the SS Vega. What is your view on the statement that ‘charity begins at home but should not end there’? How can we best show our care for people in need in other parts of the world?

I made that exact point when the States agreed to lift the Overseas Aid budget. Thousands of our people would have starved to death had we not receive Red Cross parcels and our children evacuated to England.

Considering the mounting public pressure against the way our current justice system deals with cannabis offences, what is your stance on the legalisation and regulation of cannabis in Guernsey?

The States have agreed to a review. Personally I see no sense in young adults being caught with some recreational drugs having that on their record for an extended period. Thus ruining their career and or travel plans in the future. If we accept that prohibition has never worked on anything then we can at least start recognising that lids will experiment and life long punishment for possession needs addressing.

In a review last year into drugs and treatments and States debate in January, HSC acknowledged that the disparity between life changing NICE TA drugs available in Guernsey compared to the NHS had become too great to be justified, with nearly 4000 patients now on sub-optimal treatments. The Guernsey Health Reserve was identified as the funding source. HSC announced last week a delay of at least a year to the implementation of this policy. How do you propose to tackle the pace at which change takes place within the States? Should you be held accountable for delivering on commitments you make individually, as a committee or collectively as the States?

Often it's the Committee that owns the Policy and Policy & Resources that distributes the money. In this case, any drag on the release of funds is firmly at the door of Policy and Resources.

What ideas do you have to ensure there is affordable housing including support for first time buyers and ensure affordable rental property is available for locals so they can continue to live here? What is your stance on mortgage tax relief and shared ownership initiatives?

Guernsey needs to set areas, with covenants, to allow first-time buyers access to purchasing properties. There is little evidence that the GHA has 'stair cased' tenants out into the private sector.

Earlier this year, the States passed the introduction of life-saving and life-changing NICE-Approved drugs & medicines by a massive 32-1 vote; these drugs are readily available under the NHS and SHS in the UK. HSC have now announced that the implementation of this is now to be delayed by a year or so. Out of all projects the States have on their list - this has to be THE single most important one because it will affect up to 4,000+ residents of our island. How do you intend to bring forward the delay of this incredibly important topic to a much quicker implementation date?

Often it's the Committee that owns the Policy and Policy & Resources that distributes the money. In this case, any drag on the release of funds is firmly at the door of Policy and Resources.

In January 2020 the States passed a policy to make all NICE TA drugs and treatments available to Islanders. Do you see this as a priority and if so how would you expedite implementation?

Often it's the Committee that owns the Policy and Policy & Resources that distributes the money. In this case, any drag on the release of funds is firmly at the door of Policy and Resources.

The recent Frontier report on the runway extension summed up that "the economic benefits of extending the runway are likely to outweigh the costs" with net benefits over 40 years of up to £687m (over £20k per household). Post COVID, do you support continued investigation into the potential for a runway extension to improve Guernsey's infrastructure, air links, and sustain the visitor economy?

Yes

Have you been made aware that every report that the SOG has commissioned for 20 years has flagged the need to extend the runway to circa 1700m+ and the commercial benefits it will bring for the island as a whole?

Yes

Brexit presents a unique opportunity for Guernsey to strengthen its ties with other Commonwealth countries and stand on its own two feet on an international scale. Would you be willing to make an effort to strengthen our diplomatic ties to countries like New Zealand, Australia, and Canada?

Yes

The current states assembly has approved proposals for a Discrimination Ordinance, but much work needs to be done. How committed are you to ensuring that LGBTQ+ people, people of colour, people with disabilities and people of faith are protected on this island?

We've agreed the Discrimination and Disability Strategy

What criteria do you use for decision making?

Value for money and trust in the sponsoring Committee

In the last two years two pieces of legislation have come to the States which specifically target the most vulnerable members of our society - euthanasia and abortion - where a person’s fundamental and basic right to life is overridden in the name of lesser rights. Do you believe that disposing of a person’s life is a sign of progress? Do you believe that failing to protect human life at any age or stage of development is the mark of a civilised and enlightened and caring society?

I voted against the Assisted Suicide and the 24 weeks abortion.

It is beyond time to invest in our people, infrastructure and public services. Do you plan to make the island's tax system more fair and progressive, so that more businesses and the wealthy pay a fairer share?

There needs to be a public conversation about Fiscal Policy, needs and wants. It is a fact that this government has centralised power, expanded the State and taxed the middle.

In light of covid-19 and the hit that the tourist industry has taken what plans (if any) would you try to put in place to make Guernsey more attractive to tourists after travel bans are lifted? And do you feel tourism should play a more crucial role in Guernsey? If not, why?

Aurigny has a role to play. Tourism has been decimated this year. I have and will continue to make strong arguments for Aurigny to fill its empty seats with offers to get visitors back to the Island in 2021

List your achievements to date which have been a benefit to Guernsey.

In a private capacity I have been an employer for 30 years. Having started one the Island's earliest digital companies which is 21 years old this year, I am extremely proud of the contribution that company made to the development of the industry and employment opportunities we created.

Do you support a reduction in the cost of running the civil service? If so, how would you do that and over what timescale?

I support the outsourcing to the private sector areas which government don't need to be involved in. An example is VisitGuernsey; government should not be the marketing arm for the private sector.

As we subsidise the airline, should Aurigny have a monopoly over all air routes to and from the Bailiwick, with a regulator to ensure fair pricing and a policy of not for profit?

The States need to have a very early discussion to decide what we want from Aurigny.

What is your view regarding commercialisation with respect to States owned entities?

Sceptical. Commercialisation has worked; but experience shows that full privatisation benefits shareholders over consumers.

Should the island be spending tax payers money on maintaining air and sea links?

Yes. We are an Island. I wouldn't put the whole risk of our air an sealinks entirely into private hands.

What is your view on future funding for long term care as current funding will be insufficient by 2040?

The Island needs an open conversation around its fiscal policy.

What is your opinion of introducing a goods and sales tax?

Against

Would you support the ‘listing’ of all remaining historic military structures, as Jersey has done, to ensure their ongoing protection, repair and maintenance?

Yes

What initiatives would you put in place to grow our economy?

There are numerous possibilities around the marine, sea sport and recreational fishing. Particularly now that we have our own territorial waters.

Do you believe that the rates of income support are a) too low b) about right or c) too high? Explain your answer in some detail.

This is an extremely difficult topic and I don't have much experience in the area. Like all government support, it probably works for most and not for others.

How will you support and encourage young people coming to the island with regards to housing and licencing to ensure the island has more stable tax base as the population ages?

The great shame is our Island's inability to encourage our post-grads back to the Island. You are 21, returning with your partner and your options are your teenage bedroom living with parent(s) expensive rentals and not much chance to purchase a home. Cheaper accommodation is doable but it requires a change to Planning to effect this, along with setting aside land for the specific purpose for development of that market.

Have you read the recommendations contained in the Frontier Economics Report in which they state that the long term benefits of extending the runway far outweigh the environmental and capital costs? If so, are you in favour of extending the runway?

I am on the Committee of CfED who commissioned the work and this was all done pre-Covid. With most of the world's aircraft sitting on the ground the information will need revising for whenever we enter a post-Covid world. Any decision cannot be in isolation of the fact that we own an airline that is bleeding millions of pounds per year.

What are your views on the cost of Primary Healthcare locally and what innovative ideas do you have that don’t simply involve ‘redirecting funding from a different states pot’ to create fair, equitable and affordable access to Primary Care for all islanders?

If I was to innovate anything it would be here. I'm reminded of a foreign worker I met that was a doctor in her home country but was serving on tables. A radical re-shape would be to allow foreign doctors to convert their skills to be allowed to trade in Guernsey.

Do you support developing end of life care (including palliative care) or would you look to introduce a form of euthanasia as in assisted dying (assisted suicide)?

In the last debate I voted against Assisted Dying and the amendment that directed HSC to expand its palliative care services.

Education - Do you know what T levels are and if you do, would you be enthusiastically demanding that they are available here in Guernsey?

My personal belief is that we hand all of Education over to the professionals. If the Guernsey Institute believes 'T-levels' are of an educational and/or economic use, then let them decide. Political input into Education ahs been a disaster. The sooner we hand those decisions over to the professionals, the better.

What will you do to help Guernsey businesses revive and thrive and make Guernsey a 'smarter' and technologically advanced place to do business, and to encourage new start up businesses?

There seems to be a disconnect between the desires of the Committee for Economic Development, the Population Management regime and the DPA. I've seen businesses wanting to come to Guernsey where the Committee have agreed but find the work permit system difficult and the DPA impossible. We have to find a way to join these dots early on in the next government to encourage and allow good, sustainable new business a path to establishing themselves far more efficiently than they can at the moment.

There is a lack of mental health support available - particularly to those who seem to fall into the apparent gap between the secondary and primary mental health services. What will you do to address this?

It's not an area where I have much knowledge. I generally have supported all Policy Letters emanating from Health and Social Care.

How would you as a deputy ensure emotive proposals such as, change to abortion law or assisted dying law would be publicly debated? And allow Islanders to have more of a say in these emotive issues.

The consultation system in Guernsey is largely flawed. Hackable 'polls' and flakey questions. Every citizen should have their own 'citizen account' on the government website that allows them to contribute to all consultations.

What is your position on the opportunity to debate the abortion issue more openly and fairly with more balanced representations to the Deputies?

I voted against 24 week abortions. Having a family member that was born at 24 weeks and 2 days, I comfortable with that vote. The difference between a foetus and an infant is location.

How do you see the way forward for secondary education in the island? Do you favour a particular model and if so which one?

The staff have preferred smaller community schools and I can't accept the split of the 6th form over two sites. I expect the Pause and Review in all likelihood to come back with three schools and a co-locate 6th form.

Recognising the importance of our natural environment and our hospitality industry how would you propose to move forward essential repairs and any development at St Peter Port harbour, securing access to our beaches (e.g. Petit Port, Divette, Soldiers bay), the maintenance of our cliff paths and the important access from the bathing places to the Clarence battery? Does this essential maintenance take priority over the development of the East Coast/Town seafront?

I find it incredible that government has let our coastal defences and access to beaches fall into such shoddy disrepair. Only this term have we spent money on our coastal defences. The harbour itself has little or no development in it for years. L'Ancresse East slip has broken its back, the slip at Douit du Moulin lies in a state of disrepair, Fermain wall? and it goes on. We need a proper maintenance programme to address many issues around our failing structures.

What are your views about the proposed way forward with regard to Probate, recognising that the age-old system has been efficient, pastoral, and inexpensive? Are you of the view "if it ain't broke don't fix it"?

It's not an area I know much about; I can't answer that question
