Eight initiatives may save £6 million

A government initiative which asked taxpayers for suggestions on saving money is one step closer to being implemented, despite concern from Tynwald.

Treasury's SAVE (Seeking Added Value and Efficiency) programme garnered more than a thousand responses when it was launched last year.

Now ministers have chosen eight of them to be progressed, which it's claimed could save the public purse around £6 million per year.

That's considerably less than the original £25 million per year target.

Tynwald members on Tuesday acknowledged the work done so far on the scheme - but raised concerns over an apparent 'budget by the back door'.

Ayre & Michael MHK Tim Baker supports the project.

He says some of his colleagues misunderstood what it's about.
