MHK stands by local authority letter

An Onchan MHK says he doesn't understand why commissioners in the district would consider a letter he's written 'threatening' or 'abusive'.

Last week the board revealed it had sought legal advice over the letter, which David Quirk hand-delivered to members individually.

But Mr Quirk says he doesn't know - and hasn't been able to find out - which letter is being referred to.

So does he stand behind all his correspondence? 'Yes', says Mr Quirk. 'I've no difficulty with it all. I wouldn't write to the commissioners if I didn't stand by what I'd written. Sometimes what I've written may be somewhat uncomfortable, but at the end of the day they're still accountable'.
