Recurring themes in Tynwald

There are some recurring themes on this month's Tynwald question paper.

Following the collapse of EuroManx a week ago, assurances are being sought about the future of airline services, while fluoridation also causing concern for some members.

Tynwald's newest member will cut his teeth on the issue.

David Callister MLC wants to know how the Department of Health's leaflet on the subject showed balance and what questions will be used in the telephone survey.

Rushen MHK Quintin Gill mirrors the scepticism of the policy and has similar questions on the subject.

Michael MHK David Cannan is pushing the Chief Minister for a decision about a new member for the DHSS, following Pamela Crowe's failure to be re-elected to Legco last month.

Mr Cannan will also ask who the Chair of Isle of Man Post is - a position held by Mrs Crowe and one she's required to hold until a replacement is found.

North Douglas MHK John Houghton targets the DHSS with a number of queries about the Carer's Allowance, while his colleague Bill Henderson is concerned with EuroManx and the state of the Isle of Man's film industry.

There are 32 questions for oral answer, with a further 22 for written reply.

Question time starts at 10.30am on Tuesday and will be broadcast in full on Manx Radio's AM 1368 frequency.
