UK split from EU would be bad for IOM

Chief Minister and Treasury Minister discuss future in Brussels

A trip to Brussels was imperitive to discuss the future of the Isle of Man.

That's according to the Chief Minister who travelled there with the Treasury Minister last week.

A meeting with Conservative party members gave Allen Bell and Eddie Teare a chance to talk about the Island's relationship with Europe - in particular the EU referendum.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron promised to find out if the public wants to stay in the EU or not, after winning the general election almost a month ago.

While he's doubtful the UK would split from the EU, Allan Bell is concerned for the future of the Island if it did.
