Patient transfers and virtual airlines on agenda

Ramsey MHK Dr Alex Allinson will ask the treasury minister when the former Albert Road school was put up for sale, to whom it was sold to and what development has taken place on the site.

Garff MHK Daphne Caine wants to know what plans the education minister has to urgently review the catchment areas for Onchan's primary schools.

Lawrie Hooper has a question for the policy and reform minister on what government's policy is to reduce disadvantages arising from socio-economic inequality.

And North Douglas MHK David Ashford will ask the infrastructure minister about what plans he has to bring in regulations for on-street parking of motorhomes and other large vehicles.
