MHK claims Arts Council refused him information

East Douglas MHK Chris Robertshaw says he's determined to break through what he claims is a veil of secrecy shrouding the Isle of Man Arts Council.

It comes at a time when the body slashed funding for the Sayle Gallery in the Villa Marina complex - although the Department of Education and Children stepped in to grant an extra six months worth of funding.

Mr Robertshaw says he's extremely concerned about the council's accountability and has contacted the body with questions.

He claims his requests for information have, so far, been rebuffed.
