On Air Manx Radio Breakfast Christy Dehaven | 6:00am - 9:00am

First sitting for Keys since TT festival

Fourteen questions for oral answer

In the aftermath of a characteristically action packed TT fortnight, attentions now turn back to the Legislative Buildings as the House of Keys sits this morning (Tue 12).

There are fourteen questions for oral answer, with a further seventeen seeking written responses.

One of the early discussions will be about pensions - Arbory Castletown and Malew Member Jason Moorhouse will ask the Treasury Minister about amounts payable for public sector pensions.

We'll hear lots from Education Minister Graham Cregeen, who's being asked about the enforcement of school catchment areas and how many are "not fit for purpose".

Social affairs continue to feature heavily, with questions on a shortfall in NHS dentistry, social security benefits, domestic abuse and the affordability of housing for young people.

The acquisition of the Steam Packet will be discussed once more, as South Douglas MHK Kate Beecroft asks about alternatives to its purchase.

Questions on Manx Utilities, food provenance branding and work permits make up a packed agenda.

Meanwhile in LegCo, the Abortion Reform Bill will also be put forward for its second reading by MLC Bill Henderson, from 10:30am.

You can listen to the Keys sitting live from 10am, online at manxradio.com via the AM player, on the smartphone app, or on AM1368.
