Questions (Rule 11)
|Question being asked by:
|Deputy St Pier to the Committee for Health & Social Care
|1. In its recent response to HEAL's open letter in relation to private patients' charging policy, the Committee advised that: "The uplift policy is not specifically set out in an operational policy document and Officers have therefore been requested by the Committee to review the requirement to set out the private pricing policy in this way."
Will the Committee please confirm that in developing such an operational policy document, it will give specific consideration to the appropriate policy to apply in the case of self-funded private patients?
|Deputy Gollop to the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure
|1. Will a review of the taxi licensing system and controls consider issues such as coloured plate restructuring, demand responsive Uber type systems, and revising requirements for part time drivers including the knowledge system?
|2. Is the Committee aware of some public and hospitality industry concern about taxi availability especially at the airport and late-night early morning duties and the need for maybe new entrants or thinking in the system?
|3. Has the Committee been disappointed that the contracted scheduled community bus provider was not able to operate special extra services to the West or North Shows or Rocquaine Regatta or Vale Earth Fair for example?
|4. Why has the bus company CT plus not been able to operate the additional planned summer extra services on routes 71 and 81 this season especially useful for the south coast hotels and the little chapel, especially as they have the minibus fleet?
|5. In view of the significant reduction of evening services especially after 8.35pm and other cancellations every week for the past five months is the committee considering revising the bus contract and or requiring reduced states subsidy payments?
|6. If some aspect of post pandemic bus staff shortages is employment pay and conditions related would it not be sensible and wise to examine the case for States' nationalisation of the public bus services this ensuring drivers would merit key worker status and public sector contractual pay and conditions of service encouraging staff recruitment and retention?
