Ashford dominates Keys questions

Brexit, pupil behaviour, sea services on agenda

Brexit, pupils' behaviour, work permits and sea services are some of the varied topics to be raised during House of Keys questions today.

There are ten for oral answer in all, six of which come from North Douglas MHK David Ashford.

Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper will ask Chief Minister Howard Quayle what he plans to do to improve the Island's compliance with the fifth MONEYVAL report.

Meanwhile, East Douglas MHK Chris Robertshaw wants to know if Mr Quayle intends to have a Tynwald debate about Brexit, given his recent statement it's the biggest challenge to the current administration.

Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse has a question for the economic development minister about the suspension of work permits in the construction industry.

He wants to know what research and consultion was carried out prior to the decision being taken.

Onchan MHK Julie Edge wants the education minister to make a statement about pupils' behaviour, and wants to know what assessment of it he has made.

Mr Ashford's questions are on topics such as the Legal Costs Reserve Fund, forecast income in the government's Pink Book, number plate recognition technology for the police and making public any future sea services contract.
