Chief minister reiterates landing stage commitment

Talks to ensure Island ferry services are not disrupted when the landing stage at Liverpool port is replaced are continuing.

The facility is nearing the end of its operational life and it's estimated a replacement scheme will cost in the region of £15 million.

In Tynwald yesterday, Onchan MHK Peter Karran asked for assurances Island passengers would not miss out when a deal is reached for a new stage at Liverpool, where the Manannan docks.

Chief Minister Alan Bell said although there was no cost or timetable yet outlined, government was committed to securing a long-term deal to ensure passengers could continue to travel to and form Liverpool and criticised Mr Karran's Lib Van party.

He said negotiations between the port operator (Peel Ports) and the Steam Packet had been 'damned and condemned' by Lib Van before they had properly started.
