Public opinion presented to Lisvane inquiry

Douglas South MHK Bill Malarkey delivers public feedback to Lord Robert Lisvane in inquiry

South Douglas MHK believes evidence is crucial

Public opinion will be reflected in a far-reaching report on the operation of the Manx parliament. 

Lord Lisvane says the results of a poll presented by South Douglas MHK Bill Malarkey will play an "extremely" important role.

Well over 300 people took part in the survey, giving their views on whether a shake-up's needed in the structure of Tynwald.

Voters were also asked if the chief minister and Legislative Council should be elected by the public, and whether or not Tynwald has too many members.

With 84 per cent voting for reform of the current three-chamber parliament - Mr Malarkey claims his evidence is crucial.
