Treasury Minister under fire again

The Treasury Minister is once again bracing himself for questions about the Pinewood Shepperton deal today (Tuesday).

Eddie Teare will be asked for more details about the agreement, the companies managing the Media Development Fund and the Island's role in the film industry in the House of Keys this morning.

The queries once again come from South Douglas MHK Kate Beecroft.

There are nine questions for oral answer in Keys today and, aside from Pinewood, they are about sudden oak death and the threat of ash die back, those from North Douglas MHK Bill Henderson.

He also wants answers about dementia, CCTV to protect against car vandalism and Sarah's Law, and Onchan Member Peter Karran wants to know if it's true 90 per cent of the Island's electricity used in the past six months was imported.

Four bills are at the clauses stage, Cash in Postal Packets, Sunbeds, Financial Services and the Licensing Amendment Bill.

In the Legislative Council there are no questions, but the Moneylenders Amendment Bill will be read for a second time and taken through its clauses stage, while the Income Tax Bill will be read for a first time.

Keys questions will be broadcast live on AM1368 from 10am.
