Tynwald's last sitting of 2011

Isle of Man Newspapers' decision to stop printing its titles on the Island will come under the scrutiny of Tynwald today (Tuesday), when Speaker of the House of Keys Steve Rodan quizzes the chief minister about the issue.

There are 27 questions for oral answer and another 23 for written reply at the final sitting of 2011.

Meanwhile, there are reports on constituency boundaries, and legislation dealing with sea fisheries, moneylenders and new financial instruments called foundations.

South Douglas MHK Kate Beecroft will put a series of questions to Treasury Minister Eddie Teare on whether CinemaNX has recouped any of the film investments it has made.

The court will also be asked to approve new tax agreements with Bahrain, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.

There is a whole new set of rules from Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister Phil Gawne dealing with angling, and Treasury Minister Eddie Teare will bring four items before the court, after the Island's new foundations laws were given royal assent last month.

There is full, live coverage of Tynwald from the chamber, on Manx Radio's AM 1368 frequency, from 10.30am.
