April sitting of Tynwald to take place without restrictions

Follows the lifting of Covid measures

Members of Tynwald will meet in person today following the end of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. 

The April sitting will take place as normal with proceedings getting underway from 10.30am.

Fifty six questions have been tabled in total – with 21 for oral response and 35 for written answer.

The chief minister will be quizzed on the evidence the Council of Ministers has, which Tynwald members and the public don't, in relation to border decisions.

Howard Quayle will also be asked to answer queries on vaccination passports and plans for documentation to allow residents to show their vaccination status.

Whilst lockdown measures have now eased Covid-19 will still be a major talking point with further questions tabled for other ministers about recording test results, prison regimes during lockdown and childcare for key workers.

Away from Coronavirus the health and social care minister will be asked for plans on increasing bed capacity at the mental health facility Manannan Court and when the patient transfer contract will be advertised.

And Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse will raise the subject of the NSC – he wants to know when the flumes will begin functioning again.
