CGi comments on Population Management Law review

Following an enquiry from the Guernsey Press on the proposed changes announced on 13 September 2022, CGi Chairman Dave Newman, said:

‘‘The Confederation of Guernsey Industry is pleased that Home Affairs has accepted the need to relax some of the employment restrictions through this review and in doing so, alleviate some of the labour acute shortages felt across all sectors on the Island.

Whilst some of the changes are very welcome, we will now consult with the CGi membership and establish if the proposals do go far enough in helping their recruitment and retention of staff.

We note that the timeframe for implementation is likely to be sometime in 2023, so any benefit for local businesses will not be felt for quite some time and we therefore hope that the review’s recommendations can be ratified by the States as soon as possible.’
