Tynwald prepares to sit

The May sitting of Tynwald starts this morning with a relatively short, but no less weighty question paper.

Topics covered include pre-school nursery provision, shortening the school week, Treasury adopting IMF recommendations and the future of the Manx Grand Prix,.

A protest about proposed changes to the MGP is due to take place outside Tynwald before the sitting.

Education Minister Peter Karran will ask Tynwald members to approve nearly £3 million of spending on Victoria Road Primary School.

There are due to be statements on the MEA and the Kirk Michael land swap, which will be made by members of the respective select committees - Dudley Butt MLC and East Douglas MHK Brenda Cannell.

Social Care Minister Chris Robertshaw will make a statement on the inspection of children's services too.

You can hear coverage of Tynwald on Manx Radio's AM1368 frequency, or on the 'Listen AM' function on manxradio.com, from 10.30 this morning.
