Education matters feature in Keys questions

Third Reading for Communications Bill 2018

Education matters feature heavily in the questions for answer in today's sitting of the House of Keys.

There are just five questions for oral answer - six for written reply.

Onchan member Julie Edge is asking Education Minister Graham Cregeen when he consulted education support officers and unions on the changes to their terms and conditions.

Garff member Daphne Caine has a question on year six height and weight measurements, whilst member for Arbory, Castletown and Malew, Jason Moorhouse wants to know if the department identifies compulsory areas of life skills and PSE lessons to schools.

Work permits, SAVE initiatives and the use of the sub-post office in Pulrose will also be raised during questions.

The Communications Bill 2018 and Highways (Amendment) Bill have their third Readings, whilst the Council of Ministers (Amendment) Bill 2019 and Town and Country Planning (Amendment) Bill 2019 have their first Reading.

It's also thought possible that the chief minister will make a statement on yesterday's withdrawal of a move to amend the UK's Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill, which could have forced the Island to keep a public register on beneficial ownership.

You can hear Key's questions live on AM 1368 from 10am, online and via the usual smartphone apps.
