Island's diocese could be under threat

CofE may leave if Bishop can't vote in LegCo

The Church of England could remove the Island's diocese if its Bishop doesn't have a political vote.

That was the concern raised by the Bishop of Sodor and Man who spoke as part of a Tynwald enquiry to reform the branches of Manx parliament earlier this week.

Lord Lisvane has been given licence to question a number of Tynwald members for research before his report is compiled.

Bishop Robert Paterson says there'll be consequences if his role is vetoed in the house.
