Friday 24 May 2019

Following the Prime Minister Theresa May's announcement of her resignation, Deputy Gavin St Pier, Chief Minister of Guernsey has issued the following statement:

'It was our engagement with Theresa May shortly after her election as Prime Minister that set the positive tone for our engagement with the UK Government over the last 3 years.  I wish to thank her for the support she has given in ensuring that our interests have been taken into account and ensure they are represented even when they differ from those of the UK.  I also appreciated the assurances that the long standing constitutional relationship should be respected, including that Westminster does not legislate for Guernsey on domestic matters without our consent.  

'Her impending departure is clearly not unexpected, given recent U.K. political developments. No doubt, in due course, there will be a reshuffle following the selection of a new Prime Minister and we look forward to working with the government headed by a new leader. In the meantime, I am confident that the relationships we have established will continue to ensure that Guernsey's interests are looked after. We will, of course, also continue to directly represent our own interests across both Whitehall and Westminster.'
