Covid-19 vaccine preparation to feature in Tynwald

Manx Gas agreement amongst other items for debate

Changes to the Island's medicines legislation to help government prepare for a large scale Covid-19 vaccination programme is one of the highlights at this month's Tynwald sitting.

Two emergency questions are expected to get matters started at 10.30am.

They centre on whether there is a teacher recruitment crisis and the recent positive Coronavirus tests identified through contact tracing.

Twenty-three further questions will follow.

Two items come back to the court - members pay and the Eastern Area Plan, which was withdrawn last month as it looked in danger of being defeated.

Money for the flumes to be finally completed at the NSC will be sought.

The heads and terms of a new voluntary regulatory agreement with Manx Gas will be debated as well as the appointment of an Auditor General and recommended changes to the regulations around fireworks.

You can follow coverage on Manx Radio's AM1368 frequency, online, on smartphone or smartspeaker.
