Yesterday in Tynwald

Tynwald was in session yesterday morning, after a busy month in Manx politics.

A shock census result, lively debate over buildings in the north and a change of patient transport provider - to name but a few issues - gave members much to discuss.

The court voted on a minimum wage hike, and the Health Minister brought forward a proposal to scrap the cap on home social care costs.

There was also a change in gambling rules, which would allow betting shops to open on Good Friday.

Later, the Policy and Reform Minister delivered a statement on the implications of the 2016 Census figures.

There were reports to consider on free travel for pensioners, and the conduct of clergymen.

Finally on the agenda, two motions from LibVan members.

Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper urged the Manx Utilities Authority to lower its water rate, while his Onchan colleague Julie Edge was seekig a review of employment costs government-wide.
