Good turnout for first constituency hustings

It was standing room only at Port St Mary Town Hall last night, as around 150 people attended a requisition meeting for Rushen constituency.

Topics included work capability assessments, abortion laws, medicinal and recreational cannabis, nationalising the Steam Packet, public sector pensions and the MUA debt.
