Minister Ashford responds to members' concerns 

The health minister says criticism for his department and its finances in the sitting of Tynwald on Tuesday (19 March) came as no surprise.

David Ashford requested an extra four million pounds to the department's budget.

Several members took to the floor to voice their concerns, including Jayne Poole Wilson, Member of the Legislative Council, who said there's evidence the money given to the department could be better spent; and also Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper who asked for more clarification about the budgeting process.

Despite these concerns, the extra funds were approved unanimously in the court.
