Speaking at a Chamber of Commerce meeting in Guernsey yesterday, the former Senator said that with Jersey’s economic future hinging on negotiation with foreign bodies like the EU and UK, it is time that a foreign minister was appointed in both Jersey and Guernsey.
‘Every serious government we deal with has one,’ said Mr Walker. ‘We are playing in the big league now. It’s tough and I think we need the equivalent structure there to represent us. If we are to fulfill our full potential we need government structures that allow us to move quickly and decisively. At the minute we haven’t got the structure that allows us to carry that out.’
