Plastics and public sector rent on Keys agenda

Six questions for oral answer

The European Trade Bill, single-use plastics and World Kindness Day dominate a concise House of Keys order paper this morning (Tues).

There are six questions for oral answer, with a further eight seeking written responses.

The sitting will begin with a familiar theme - Douglas South MHK Kate Beecroft asking questions of Chief Minister Howard Quayle.

The questions relate to the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union and the implications for the Isle of Man.

Member for Middle Bill Shimmins will ask the Environment Minister a two-part question about plastics, and Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper will ask the Infrastructure Minister how the ability of tenants to pay is considered as part of the public sector housing rent setting process.

Also, Jason Moorhouse MHK will ask Howard Quayle what action government will take this year to support World Kindness Day on the Island.

Several questions for written answer revolve around government employee statistics, with Onchan MHK Rob Callister asking three questions about sexual assault and one final question about staffing at the Post Office.

There are bills for first and second readings - the Criminal Evidence and Communications Bills - before the consideration of clauses in the Payment of Members Expenses and European Trade Bills.

You can listen to the Keys sitting live from 10am, online at manxradio.com via the AM player, on the smartphone app, or on AM1368.
