Figures reveal DHSC's £4m expenses bill

The Chief Minister is downplaying concerns over a £4 million expenses bill racked up by the health department since 2012.

Bosses have explained the sum, revealed via a Tynwald written answer, is comprised mainly of fuel allowances for its mobile staff.

Much of the remaining figure is calied to cover off-Island training and relocation costs.

Former DHSC boss Howard Quayle says grouping all expenses together can present a distorted picture.
