Questions on fuel cost inquiry

The Manx Institute of Sport, under construction at the National Sports Centre, and the cost of fuel are among the subjects which will be considered during question time in the House of Keys today.

Onchan MHK Peter Karran will ask the minister for tourism and leisure about the total cost of the institute, and what facilities it will include which are not available elsewhere on the Island.

Fellow Onchan member David Quirk will be looking for more information from Office of Fair Trading chairman Bill Henderson about his recently announced inquiry into why fuel costs in the Isle of Man are so high.

Mr Quirk will specifically ask if there has been any overpricing or excessive profiteering.

Air fares, and promoting the Island's financial services industry will also be discussed.

Today's Keys sitting begins at 10am and there will be full, live coverage of question time on Manx Radio's AM 1368 service.

The Legislative Council is due to sit half an hour later.
