States members return to the assembly chamber

About a third of Jersey’s politicians have been allowed to return to the States Assembly on Tuesday for the first time since March, as they start a new hybrid way of meeting.

The rest of the island’s elected officials will take part in this week’s sitting online.

States Members have been grouped alphabetically, and will rotate day by day.

On Tuesday, Deputies Ahier, Alves and Ash are among those to be offered seats in the chamber, while on Wednesday, if the meeting continues, it will be the turn of deputies Macon, Morel and Martin.

Despite being in the room together, they will be on laptop computers so they can see their colleagues working from home, and these devices will continue to be used to vote, and for members to indicate they wish to speak.

Also present in the chamber will be States officials, including the bailiff and the greffier.

The building will be thoroughly cleaned every evening, and everyone will be asked to social distance throughout the sitting.

For the public and media, who are not currently allowed to return to the public gallery, the meeting will continue to be available online.
