Ex-deputy slams referendum law delay
Monday 4th February 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
LACK of referendum legislation is ‘appalling and disgraceful’ according to the former deputy who tabled the amendment to bring it in, Tony Webber.
After the chief minister released a list of problems causing the delay in implementing legislation, Mr Webber, pictured, said there seemed to be scant reason as to why no legislation existed.
‘There is no excuse whatsoever not to have done so.
‘We just have to look at legislation that already exists in Jersey and the UK and apply it here.’
One of the reasons cited in the list of problems was what sort of questions referendums should be limited to.
