Did Senator Philip Ozouf give the Tory party £1000 of his own money or yours at a Tory Party fund raising event dinner  ?

When the Jersey Government have one of their own being investigated by the police for possibly “ using their States given expense card for personal spending there is another and interesting big spend that so far has possibly not be exposed or checked by the States committee (PPC)  that is supposed to uphold standards expected of the great and good that have been elected and trusted with access to the public purse.

Maybe the police are investigating.

If a states committee decides to sponsor  a charity, a rugby team or in fact anything it will be a committee or ministerial democratic decision using public money.

Should a politician decide to make a donation to any political party or preferred charity, there should be no problem if that comes from the pocket of the politician and not the taxpayer who may have different political preferences.
So who paid the one thousand pounds for Senator Ozouf to attend a fund raiser for the Conservative Party ?

The table plan shows:

Seats with senior Tories came at a cost: “premier” tickets were charged at £1,000 compared with £450 for an ordinary ticket.
*Peter de Putron, an offshore financier who is brother-in-law of financial services minister Andrea Leadsom, was seated with health secretary Jeremy Hunt and Jersey’s
Treasury minister, Philip Ozouf.

This certainly should have been picked up by Jersey’s media who are supposed to ask questions on behalf of the residents of Jersey and how their tax pound is spent.

Maybe its been paid back?
I dont know.
 But I do know that it has been decided that there is not enough evidence to proceed with prosecution of the un-named person suspected of using public expenses illegally.

Well done Tosh above so as expected the transparent whiter than white FOI requests tells very little but who would have paid for Senator Ozouf and why ?:

 " Senator Ozouf’s attendance was paid for by a private individual - please see 'B' above. The cost of the dinner was £300 which was paid for by the individual."

A couple of comments, first the tickets prices were set at an level to fund the conservative party that was the major aim of the staged event. The organisers say the tickets were priced at £1,000 each.

Where did £300 come from ?

Further more, it is good news that the tax payer did not stump up for the fundraisers attendance " apparently " but why pay for a ticket on the airplane to get to a fund raiser ?

There again with the health minister Andrew Green signing of over nine million for unamed consultants and another seven million pounds on a crazy hospital costs for a  plan that is not even up to speed and published or showing a decent business structure, the states waste of money continues unabated.
