Traffic issues and healthcare to feature in Keys

House to meet in person for the first time since relaxation of social distancing

The impact of the reduced speed limit, the recent changes on Glencrutchery Road and the future of Manx healthcare are among the topics to feature in this week's sitting of the House of Keys.

There are nine questions for oral answer in this morning's sitting.

Douglas East MHK Clare Barber is raising two traffic queries, asking what evidence there was for reducing the speed limit during the coronavirus lockdown, and what assessments were done ahead of introducing the new traffic management on Glencrutchery Road.

The subjects of Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse's questions include the work of fisheries enforcement vessel Barrule, and industrial action by teachers in the Island's schools.

Douglas Central member Chris Thomas is asking about the investigation into Abbotswood, and what advice was given to vulnerable people shielding during the pandemic.

Elsewhere on the order paper, Health Minister David Ashford will give the Manx Care Bill its first reading.

Members will meet in the House of Keys chamber for the first time since coronavirus measures were relaxed from 10am. You can follow coverage of Manx Radio's AM 1368 frequency, online or on smartphone app.
