New MHKs hit the ground running

The House of Keys has its first full sitting since the general election today (Tuesday).

New members who won their seats last month are off to a running start, with twelve out of 17 questions coming from them rather than more established MHKs.

Topics range from the land swap deal at Kirk Michael Primary School and waiting times at Noble's Hospital, to free bus passes and Sarah's Law.

As well as the 14 questions for oral answer and three more for written reply, the House of Keys will also elect members to a number of legislative committees, and make appointments to the courts of the universities of Lancaster and Liverpool.

And Speaker of the House of Keys Steve Rodan will make a statement about electing a new member of the Legislative Council, following Clare Christian's election as president at the July sitting of Tynwald.

There is live coverage of question time in the House of Keys from 10am on Manx Radio's AM 1368 frequency.
