Minister's company caught in 'TT' debate

Company not offering any new merchandise

The Department of Economic Development says no licences have been issued to the company Manx Inspirations for the use of official TT branding since 2010.

The issue has been highlighted recently after DED threatened to sue Bushy's Brewery over its use of the Bushy's TT trademark, although an agreement has now been reached.

Minister Laurence Skelly is listed as a director of Manx Inspirations but in a statement the DED says that whilst licences have been issued in the past - the last was in 2010 before Mr Skelly was elected.

On its expiry the company was allowed to sell off outstanding stock, but the DED says it understands the company will not be seeking any further licences at this stage or offering any new merchandise for sale.
