Off-target FTP faces rebellion
Monday 24th December 2012, 12:00PM GMT.
BACKBENCHERS are set to launch a rebellion against the States £31m. cost-cutting programme.
Revelations that the Financial Transformation Programme is nearly £8m. off target has sparked deputies to call for more time to deliver the savings.
Others have expressed concerns over the lack of scrutiny of the process and the time and money spent by dragging civil servants away from vital day-to-day work.
The unrest is predicted to see amendments being lodged ahead of a vote of confidence in the programme next month, when the new Assembly will be asked to endorse the current approach.
Deputy Barry Brehaut said he was considering lodging an amendment calling for more time to deliver the targets.
