Another LegCo reform attempt in House of Keys

The House of Keys sat yesterday - with another attempt to reform Legislative Council on the cards.

During yesterday's sttting, Onchan MHK Peter Karran asked for leave to introduce a private member's bill to make changes to Tynwald's upper house.

Mr Karran says he wants to make it popularly elected, ban MLCs from becoming ministers, and adjust the eligibility of potential candidates.

There was also a packed question paper, with seven queries for oral answer and another five for written reply.

Mr Karran was to open questions, asking what the government's doing to protect people on lower incomes from paying more in fees and charges than they do in tax.

And Michael MHK Alf Cannan wanted to know why the government's response to criticisms from the UK's Labour Party wasn't stronger, with a press release to the media.

Two bills were to be considered during the morning sitting: the Interpretation Bill 2014 and the Legislation Bill 2014 were to be steered through their clauses stage by Home Affairs Juan Watterson.
