Legislative Council has long-term role to play

Chief Minister welcomes changes

The Chief Minister says the importance of the Manx parliament’s upper house cannot be overstated.

Howard Quayle’s welcomed a range of changes to the way MLCs are elected.

It includes measures to ensure the vote, by MHKs, is made public as opposed to via a secret ballot.

However, Mr Quayle insists, despite the changes, the Legislative Council has a role to play in scrutinising legislation.
