Programme for Government approved by Tynwald

Freedom of information being introduced 12 months early

The framework of a programme for government has been unanimously approved by Tynwald.

They include a range of measures to encourage economic growth, including changes to the work permit system, reforms to the planning system and a new education strategy.

Freedom of information will also be rolled out across all government departments next year - 12 months ahead of schedule.

Detail will now be added to the programme ahead of a debate in January.
