Team's high and low search for savings

SAVE project invites input from Manx public

A new task force to uncover savings in government of £25 million has been set up - and the Manx public are being asked for their ideas. 

Treasury Minister Alf Cannan has stepped up the drive to cut waste, putting Middle MHK Bill Shimmins at the helm of the team, which has the acronym SAVE - Securing Added Value and Efficiencies.
