The type of reply received from the Chief minister & policy Council.

In this case the reply is to a seventeen page report regarding a lack

of due dilligence by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.

The report raised many questions and this is the response.





17th December 2009

Dear Mr Dorman,

I write in connection with your letter and enclosures of 14 October 2009, in which, on behalf of the Landsbanki Guernsey Depositors Action Group (LGDAG), you set out an outline argument for “a full Public inquiry into the failure of Landsbanki Guernsey”.
After careful consideration of your letter and outline, and having taken independent advice on this matter, the Policy Council is of the opinion that there are insufficient grounds to hold a public inquiry into this matter. The Council considers that the Promontory Group’s independent and definitive inquiry, which is already in the public domain, sufficiently addresses this matter.

Yours sincerely

Hand written signature


LS Trott

Chief Minister

With very best wishes for Christmas and the New (hand written)
