Water rate, Ramsey courthouse sale and more in Keys

Questions on budget fallout also

Home Affairs Minister Bill Malarkey will on Tuesday morning be questioned about the sale of the Ramsey courthouse building.

One of the town's MHKs wants to know if the property is being offered on the open market.

It's one of nine questions for oral answer in the House of Keys.

Other issues being raised include the cost of burning oil at the Energy from Waste Plant, the life expectancy of the power station's gas turbines, and what the water rate will be in 2017/18.

Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas will be pressed on his plans to introduce a Bike to Work Scheme by Ramsey member Lawrie Hooper, and with Alfred Cannan's first Budget announcement still ringing in the ears of many, North Douglas MHK David Ashford wants details on additional funds in the Land and Property Acquisition Reserve.

There are just two questions for written answer but still plenty more on the agenda.

Mr Thomas will hope to steer the Equality Bill 2016 through its third reading - something Mr Cannan and East Douglas member Clare Bettison will also attempt with the Beneficial Ownership Bill 2017 and Fraud Bill 2017 respectively.
