Post Office closures dominate Keys


The House of Keys sits this morning, with Ramsey and Douglas post offices top of the agenda.


Ten of the 26 questions for oral answer are about the closure of the two main branches, with services planned to relocate to nearby Spar shops.


There are a further 11 questions for written reply, and three bills for MHKs to discuss.


Liberal Vannin MHKs Kate Beecroft and Peter Karran will lead the charge, as they quiz Chief Minister Allan Bell, Treasury Minister Eddie Teare and Post Office chairman Graham Cregeen about the proposed main post office branch closures.


There are some other familiar topics during questions: the government’s investment in Pinewood and the money spent on reviewing the Island’s national insurance fund will both be raised.


The Freedom of Information Bill is due to get its second reading, steered by Policy and Reform Minister Chris Robertshaw.


There’ll be live coverage of Keys questions on Manx Radio’s AM1368 frequency from 10am.
