Covid-19 and education dominate Tynwald questions

Final Tynwald sitting of 2020 starts at 10:30am

Covid-19, education and Brexit are all featured on the Tynwald question paper today.

There are 27 questions for oral answer and 33 for written.

In the final Tynwald sitting of 2020, Covid-19 is a subject revisited in more than one question to ministers.

The first asks the chief minister to give an update on what the findings and outcomes were from the review of the procedures for allowing key workers to visit here.

Elsewhere on the question paper there's a range of topics raised, with a number on education.

Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper says parents are concerned about their children being left behind in school after the Christmas holidays.

Garff MHK Daphne Caine wants to know if changes are being considered to catchment areas, and what the education department's early years strategy is.

The sitting commences at 10:30am broadcast on Manx Radio's AM 1368 frequency, online and on our smartphone apps.
