Administration of Justice: Crown Dependencies

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 20 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how much has been allocated by the Ministry of Justice for the judicial systems in Crown dependencies. (141791)

No provision has been allocated for this purpose. The Crown dependencies (the Isle of Man and the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey) are self-governing dependencies of the Crown, and as such, they have their own directly elected legislative assemblies, administrative and fiscal systems and courts of law. It is for the Government of each Crown dependency to make such provision for its judicial system as it considers appropriate.

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice what plans she has to meet representatives of the government of (a) the Isle of Man, (b) Guernsey and (c) Jersey. (141803)

There are no current plans, but Ministers meet representatives of the governments of the Crown Dependencies whenever it is appropriate to do so.
