BAILIWICK OF GUERNSEY

1 May–31 August 2018

A. GUERNSEY

1. LAWS APPROVED BY THE STATES OF DELIBERATION

(a)    European Union (Brexit) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2018

        (Billet d’État No XVI of 2018. Approved 06.06.18)

This Law is broadly equivalent in scope and purpose to the UK’s European Union (Withdrawal) Bill and has been drafted to provide as much legislative flexibility as possible for the Bailiwick. It has four primary purposes—

     1. To repeal the European Communities (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1973 (“the 1973 Law”), and thus turn off the flow of European legislation which is directly applicable in the Bailiwick pursuant to Protocol 3 (see s 1);

     2. To preserve in domestic law that directly applicable EU legislation which had effect in the Bailiwick immediately before exit day (“Preserved EU law”) (see s 2), to avoid a legal black hole on exit day;

     3. To provide a suitable mechanism to amend and repeal both Preserved EU law and other enactments at short notice where that is necessary and expedient in consequence of the repeal of the 1973 Law or otherwise in consequence of Brexit (see the regulation making power at s 5); and

     4. To make appropriate provision in relation to the interpretation, and status, of EU law after exit (see ss 6–8). In all of this, and in the transitional provision it makes in Schedule 1, it is broadly consistent with provision within the UK Withdrawal Bill.

     The Law does not require the preparation of what purports to be a comprehensive list of preserved EU law. Instead, at s 3(2) there is a more general power for the Policy & Resources Committee (after consultation with HM Procureur) to publish information relating to preserved EU law. In this way, key examples of preserved EU law can be published, and more comprehensive information could be published if that were thought appropriate.

     In addition to the foregoing, the Law makes provision in respect of any withdrawal agreement that the UK may enter into with the EU and which has application in the Bailiwick.

     Section 1 repeals the 1973 Law on exit day (defined as 11 pm on 29 March 2019, or such other day as the Policy & Resources Committee may appoint by regulations) but also provides that regulations under s 5 can amend the 1973 Law before exit day. Section 2 preserves EU provisions (another defined term) in domestic law on exit day, subject to amendment by section 5 regulations and to the provisions of any enactment coming into force on or after exit day. Section 3 provides that such saved EU provisions are preserved EU law. Section 4 makes clear that Ordinances under the European Communities (Implementation) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1994 (“the Implementation Law”) and other enactments implementing EU provisions continue to have effect, notwithstanding the repeal of the 1973 Law.

     Section 5 gives power to amend or repeal preserved EU law and other enactments by regulation where that is necessary and expedient in consequence of the repeal of the 1973 Law or otherwise in consequence of Brexit. To provide for enhanced scrutiny and protection in respect of the exercise of this wide power, it sets out a process of certification by HM Procureur at sub-s (3); this regulation making power sits with the relevant Alderney and Sark Committees where exercised solely in respect of those Islands. Sections 6 and 7 deal with the interpretation of legislation and other related matters after “the designated day”, which day is to be appointed by regulations made by the Policy & Resources Committee. If there is a transition period during which EU law continues to have effect, it is intended that the designated day will be the end of that transition period; if there is not, the designated day will simply be the same as exit day. Section 6 provides that a court may take account of relevant EU law on and after the designated day, but is not obliged to do so, and is not bound by that law, and makes some further specific provision. Section 7 provides that there is no right on or after the designated day to challenge any preserved EU law on the grounds that before the designated day, the corresponding EU provision was invalid. Section 8 deals with the status of preserved EU law in the context of the Human Rights (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2000 and the Interpretation and Standard Provisions (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2016.

     Section 9 gives power to the States to make provision in relation to any withdrawal agreement (a defined term—see s 12), including provision equivalent to provision in the 1973 Law, thus enabling the States to provide for EU law to continue to have effect during a transition period. It also allows for such an ordinance to provide that EU law which comes into force and is applicable in the Bailiwick during that period to be preserved EU law. Section 10 deems the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights to be an EU provision for the purposes of the Implementation Law and thus susceptible to implementation by ordinance under that Law. Section 11 makes provision in respect of ordinances and regulations made under the Law; sub-ss (6)–(10) are concerned with regulations made under s 5. Section 12 is the interpretation section, s 13 gives effect to the two Schedules, and ss 14 and 15 deal with citation and commencement.

     Schedule 1 contains consequential, transitional and saving provisions, including amendments to the 1973 Law and the 1994 Law. The amendments to the 1994 Law (para 4) are consequential on provision made in this Law; the inserted definition of “EU provision” provides both for EU provisions (whether or not directly applicable in or binding upon the Bailiwick during any transition period) and items of preserved EU law to be implemented by ordinance under the 1994 Law, which will continue to be relevant in respect of items of preserved EU law. The amendment to the 1973 Law (para 3 and Schedule 2) is to bring the definition of the treaties in that Law up to date, in order for there to be clarity on the face of the statute book in this regard. Paragraph 1 is concerned with ambulatory references in EU provisions and how they should be read after exit day. Paragraph 2 makes provision in respect of how powers to make subordinate legislation should be read as applying in respect of preserved EU law. Paragraph 5 is concerned with things being done (e.g. licences being issued) during the exit period, and para 6 makes protective provision in respect of court and tribunal proceedings begun, and conduct which gives rise to any criminal liability occurring, before the designated day.

            Schedule 2 contains the updated definition of “the EU Treaties”.

(b)   International Trade Agreements (Implementation) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2018

        (Billet d’État No XVI of 2018. Approved 06.06.18)

As a result of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, the Bailiwick of Guernsey requires a suitable mechanism to implement any international trade agreements to which it is a party, whether due to its inclusion by the UK or in its own right. It may also wish to implement such agreements in the future where there is no connection with the UK’s withdrawal. The purpose of this enabling Law is to provide that mechanism.

     Section 1 of the Law permits the States of Deliberation (in relation to Guernsey and the Bailiwick as a whole) and the States of Alderney and the Chief Pleas of Sark (in relation to their respective islands) to enact ordinances where it is necessary or expedient for the purpose of implementing any international trade agreement or resolving trade disputes arising from an international trade agreement. Section 2 makes general provision in respect of ordinances made under s 1, and the remaining sections deal with interpretation, citation and commencement.

     The Law defines an “international trade agreement” as a free trade agreement, any other international agreement that relates to trade, and the Agreement on Government Procurement of the World Trade Organisation.

2. ORDINANCES APPROVED BY THE STATES OF DELIBERATION

(a)    Data Protection (Commencement, Amendment and Transitional) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XII of 2018. Approved 16.05.18—in force 25.05.18)

This Ordinance is made under the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2017 (“the Law”). It amends the Law, makes consequential amendments to Ordinances in Guernsey, Sark and Alderney relating to e-Privacy, and makes transitional and savings provisions. It brought the Law and this Ordinance into force on 25 May 2018.

     Part II provides for a transitional period of one year before controllers and processors are required to comply with certain duties under the Law or the Data Protection (Law Enforcement and Related Matters) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Ordinance 2018. It also allows public authorities to continue processing personal data under the Law based on the legitimate interest of those public authorities during this transitional period. Finally this part makes provision for notification of a personal data breach occurring before the commencement of the Law.

     Part III saves the effect of consent to authorisation validly obtained under the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2001 (“former Law”) before the commencement of the Law. It also saves designations and notifications of Bailiwick representatives, and authorisations for transfers given by the Data Protection Commissioner under the former Law. Finally, it saves proceedings brought or offences committed under the former Law, and provides for other things done under the former Law to continue to have effect where there are corresponding provisions for those things under the new Law.

     Part IV transfers assets, rights, liabilities, obligations, records, etc of the Data Protection Commissioner to the Authority.

     Part V revokes orders and regulations made under the former Law, and makes several amendments to the Law. It also amends the European Communities (Implementation of Privacy Directive) (Guernsey) Ordinance 2004 and equivalent ordinances in Alderney and Sark to align those ordinances with the enforcement provisions under the new Law.

(b)   Data Protection (Law Enforcement and Related Matters) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XII of 2018. Approved 16.05.18—in force 25.05.18)

This Ordinance is made under the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2017, and implements provisions equivalent to the EU Law Enforcement Directive (Directive (EU) 2016/680), with adaptations, exceptions and exemptions tailored to the needs of the Bailiwick.

(c)   Income Support (Implementation) (Amendment) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XVI of 2018. Approved 06.06.18—in force 06.07.18)

This Ordinance amends the Supplementary Benefit (Implementation) Ordinance 1971, which was renamed as the Income Support (Implementation) Ordinance 1971, from 6 July 2018.

     New short term and long term weekly requirement rates for the assessment of income support are set out in inserted tables 2 and 3 in the Schedule to the Ordinance. In general terms short term rates are decreased but long term rates, for longer term claimants, are increased and allowances, related to the calculation of a claimant’s requirements, are generally increased.

     The Ordinance also makes amendments affecting those entitled to have their claims assessed under the higher long term requirement rates.

     Other amendments are made in relation to allowances which affect the calculation of a claimant’s requirement rates. The maximum rent allowances for householders are also extended, capital allowances significantly increased, and provision made for a new extra-needs allowance.

     The Ordinance raises the amount of earnings per week which are disregarded for the purposes of calculating the resources of claimants.

(d)   Alderney (Application of Legislation) (Income Support) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XVI of 2018. Approved 06.06.18—in force 06.07.18)

This Ordinance applies the Income Support (Guernsey) Law 2017 to Alderney under the Alderney (Application of Legislation) Law 1948.

(e)    Income Tax (Guernsey) (Approval of Agreement with San Marino) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XVI of 2018. Approved 06.06.18—in force 07.06.18)

This Ordinance specifies, as an approved international agreement, an agreement providing for the obtaining, furnishing and exchanging of information in relation to tax, made for the purposes of the Income Tax (Guernsey) Law 1975.

     The agreement specified was made between the States of Guernsey and the Republic of San Marino, contained in a Protocol signed on 19 December 2017 and 14 December 2017 on behalf of Guernsey and San Marino respectively (which amends the agreement between the States of Guernsey and the Republic of San Marino providing for the exchange of information relating to tax matters signed on the 29 September 2010).

(f)        Electoral System Referendum (Guernsey) Law 2018 (Commencement) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XVI of 2018. Approved 06.06.18—in force 06.06.18)

This Ordinance commences the Electoral System Referendum (Guernsey) Law 2018, which will come into force on 11 June 2018.

(g)   Land Planning and Development (Exemptions) (Amendment) Ordinance 2018

(Billet d’État No XVIII of 2018. Approved 27.06.18—in force 27.06.18)

This Ordinance substitutes the existing exemption (from the requirement to obtain planning permission) for election signs in the Land Planning and Development (Exemptions) Ordinance 2007. The main change is to add, in new para 4(b), an exemption for the temporary display of signs promoting campaigns in relation to, or the subject matter of which is otherwise in connection with, a referendum to be held in Guernsey under legislation; it covers signs which are displayed during the period immediately preceding a referendum. The current similar exemption for signs in relation to States or Parish elections is retained but the wording has been reordered. The amendment has been made because of the referendum on Island-wide voting, planned to be held in October 2018, but is worded generally to apply to any referendum held under legislation in Guernsey.

(Billet d’État No XIX of 2018. Approved 18.07.18—in force 18.07.18)

B. ALDERNEY

1. LAWS APPROVED BY THE STATES OF ALDERNEY

(a)    Gambling (Alderney) (Amendment) (No 2) Law 2018

        (Billet d’État 13.06.18. Approved 13.06.18)

This Law amends s 4 of the Gambling (Alderney) Law, 1999 (“the 1999 Law”). That section limits the liability of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (“the Commission”) in respect of anything done or omitted to be done in the discharge or purported discharge of any function of the Commission under the 1999 Law or an Ordinance made thereunder, unless done (or omitted to be done) in bad faith.

     Section 1 inserts a new subsection (2) into s 4 of the 1999 Law, to make clear that what is now subsection (1) does not prevent an award of damages in respect of an act or omission on the ground that it was unlawful as a result of s 6(1) of the Human Rights (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2000.

(b)   Separation, Maintenance and Affiliation Proceedings (Alderney) (Amendment) Law 2018

        (Billet d’État 13.06.18. Approved 13.06.18)

This Law amends the Separation, Maintenance and Affiliation Proceedings (Alderney) Law, 1964, which makes provision for separation and maintenance proceedings in the Court of Alderney. The grounds upon which an application could previously be made are differed according to whether the applicant was a married woman or a married man. The grounds themselves were outdated. In the course of the preparation of the implementation provisions for the Same-Sex Marriage (Alderney) Law 2017 it became apparent that the provisions could not be adapted for application to same-sex couples and in consequence the States of Alderney resolved that Part II of the 1964 Law should substantially be replaced in its application to all couples.

(c)   International Trade Agreements (Implementation) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2018

        (Billet d’État 25.07.18. Approved 25.07.18)

This Law was approved by the States of Deliberation of Guernsey on 06.06.18 (see Chapter A.1.(b) above) and the Chief Pleas of Sark on 04.07.18 (see Chapter C.1.(c) below).

2. ORDINANCES APPROVED BY THE STATES OF ALDERNEY

(a)    Building and Development Control (Alderney) (Fees) (Amendment) Ordinance 2018

        (Billet d’État 23.05.18. Approved 23.05.18—in force 01.06.18)
