‘We Have Won The Battle But Not The War’
We’ve not heard the last of the attempts to legislate for the crown dependencies without their consent by Westminster, according to Gavin St Pier.
Guernsey’s most senior politician believes the amendments to the Financial Services Bill will return in the future, whether on the financial services bill or another piece of legislation.
‘I think we should not be naive, if this legislation does not return, or it does not return in a timely manner, I have no doubt that those who are behind these amendments will look to move them again on to another piece of a legislation at some point in the future. We’ve won the battle, but no the war. These issues will not go away’.
