'We're not out of ideas' says politician

An MHK has defended a scheme seeking public suggestions on how the government can operate more efficiently.

The SAVE (Securing Added Value and Efficiencies) programme aims to save £25 million over the next five years.

Ideas can be posted online, or in person at drop-in sessions taking place across the Island this week.

Those sessions are taking place with Mr Ashford on Thursday (13 April)  at Castletown Library from 12-3pm; then the following Thursday (20 April) at Douglas Library from 12-3pm.

A further session, held by SAVE committee member Lawrie Hooper MHK will be held on Thursday, 27 April at Ramsey Library from 12-3pm; and finally Bill Shimmins will meet the public in Peel Town Hall on Thursday, 4 May between 1-4pm.

But Mr Ashford claims it's not a case of the government running out of ideas.
