The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel holds a quarterly public hearing with the Chief Minister on Friday 15th September 2017.

The Panel is inviting members of the public to send in questions they would like to ask the Chief Minister.

  • Population Policy
  • Student Finance
  • Care Inquiry
  • Future Hospital
  • Machinery of Government
  • Brexit
  • Public Sector Reform

Questions on other areas will also be considered.

Quarterly Hearings

Scrutiny Panels hold quarterly public hearings with Ministers and senior civil servants in order to hold Ministers to account on their policies and other matters of public interest. Public hearings are usually held in the States Building and are open to members of the public to attend. Podcasts and transcripts are published after the hearing. Work is underway to introduce live webcasting of public hearings in the future.

The Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel will be giving a similar opportunity for questions to be submitted for its next public hearing with the Education Minister. Further details of this will be announced soon.
