New administration has missed an opportunity, says MHK

The new administration has missed an opportunity to move towards a better balance between executive process and parliamentary scrutiny.

That's the belief of East Douglas MHK Chris Robertshaw who declined to take on a position within a government department.

He says the Lisvane inquiry into the structure of the Manx parliament - which will be considered by Tynwald next spring - recommends each department should consist of just the minister and one member.

One department of the new government has five members.

Speaking on Present Politics, Mr Robertshaw said he's never been a departmental member - and when he was a minister, he didn't want them.
