Controlling Spending

The way the States deals with spending needs reform. Different departments can come to the States requesting funding for their projects in isolation and without consideration as to their relative importance. This means that money isn’t necessarily being spent to best effect.

That is why I believe we should be prioritising spending, both in terms of general expenditure and capital projects. This means Government needs to agree what its economic, social and environmental priorities are early in the next term and stick to them.
