House of Keys to sit for first time since June

Parliamentary business begins again today

The House of Keys will sit again for the first time this morning (13 Oct) since June.

Covid-19 at the prison, the role of key workers, and testing at the borders are on the agenda for the session, which starts at 10am.

MHKs have had a three-month break from parliamentary business, which gets back into gear again this morning.

The two new members for Douglas South, Paul Quine and Claire Christian, will be sworn in, before questions are taken.

They cover issues such as the need for off-Island welders to come and work on the railways, whether key workers should be tested at the border, and on Covid-19 at the prison.

Meanwhile, it's the first reading of a bill which would pave the way for opt-out organ donation, with other pieces of legislation also to be looked at.

You can listen to the sitting on Manx Radio's AM 1368 frequency, which is available online and via smartphone apps.
