MHK believes UK data service will prove more expensive

Government using off-island firm to handle electoral data

An MHK believes sending electoral data to be processed at a company off-island will prove more costly in the long run.

Arbory, Castletown & Malew member Jason Moorhouse is asking questions about the decision not to use a local firm at next week's sitting of the House of Keys.

He wants to know whether extra charges can be applied by the UK firm.

Mr Moorhouse also thinks there could be security issues.
