DEC minister considers incentive scheme

The Education Minister says encouraging graduates back to the Island would see him fulfill one of his election promises.

Graham Cregeen was responding to a question in the House of Keys yesterday.

East Douglas member Clare Bettison asked him about refunding tuition fees through tax reliefs.

Miss Bettison believes the scheme could help bridge skills gaps on the Island.

Mr Cregeen says he's committed to working with other departments on the matter.
