Deputy wants Fiscal Framework rethink
Monday 10th December 2012, 5:00PM GMT.
STATES fiscal policies must be consistent with its own fiscal framework, a deputy who has called for their reconciliation has said.
Deputy Matt Fallaize, pictured, has submitted an amendment to the 2013 States budget asking the Policy Council and the Treasury and Resources department to produce a report addressing the inconsistency no later than December next year.
‘From the moment the Fiscal Framework of the States was published in 2009, I have been critical about those parts of the framework and those parts of existing States’ policies which are in contradiction,’ he said.
‘I was hopeful that those contradictions would be addressed, but we are heading towards four years since the framework was established and the contradictions remain as stark as ever.’
