Tynwald's consideration of Middlemarch purchase delayed

Plans to approve a £14.5 million overspend by Island government departments have been put on hold.

 

Tynwald was next week due to be asked to endorse extra costs on a series of capital projects.

 

However, with one of the schemes - the purchase of the Middlemarch site as part of the Sefton Group bail-out – still requiring legal backing, the motion has been delayed.

 

Chief Minister Allan Bell says that’s not unusual.
