Report into bullying allegation cost £7,000

FOI shows how much it cost to clear Hooper of Ministerial Code breach

A report into whether or not MHK Lawrie Hooper broke the ministerial code cost £7,050 to produce.

Mr Hooper, the health and social care minister, was cleared of an allegation of bullying last month.

It stemmed from a meeting with the Health Services Consultative Committee during which, it was claimed, the minister subjected members to a 'rant'.

The Manx advocate tasked with looking into the incident dismissed the complaint, but found he was able to, and should have, defused tensions.

The cost of compiling the report has been published following a Freedom of Information request.
