Seigneur plays down fears of intervention in Sark’s affairs
Friday 12th April 2013, 5:00PM BST.
SEIGNEUR Michael Beaumont has insisted that ‘change will happen’ in Sark despite its rejection of a full-time civil servant.
Mr Beaumont also dismissed fears that outside intervention would immediately follow the vote by Chief Pleas against appointing an executive administrator.
The controversial decision on Wednesday came ahead of next week’s visit by Lord McNally, the UK’s Minister of State for Justice.
‘We know there are going to be changes, but we don’t know what they are,’ said Mr Beaumont.
The Seigneur said he did not think there would be any outside intervention to force change in Sark in the short-term or any pressure from Lord McNally during his visit.
