Minister would welcome cut in Douglas council numbers


The Island's new infrastructure minister says he'd welcome a reduction in the number of Douglas councillors.

Laurence Skelly admitted any move by the corporation to cut its members by a third - from 18 to 12 - would receive department support.

He was speaking in Tynwald, which approved a plan to reduce the number of Castletown commissioners from nine to seven from May 2016.
