New minister explains motion withdrawal

Thomas backtracks after ministerial appointment

A motion on next week's Tynwald order paper regarding a government agenda would now prove too confusing.

That's according to the man behind it: Central Douglas MHK Chris Thomas.

He was pushing through a move which would see government publish an annual programme of challenges.

The motion has now been withdrawn after Mr Thomas was appointed as a Minister charged with the same task.
