Two MHKs sacked from the Department of Education and Children say they were horrified to learn about plans to cut the Island's preschool provision.

Zac Hall and John Houghton were removed from the Department after failing to take part in a vote on preschools in Tynwald last week.

The loss of preschools was discussed at a meeting last year where the pair say they voiced their objections, but the Minister was determined to press ahead with the cuts.

They say Peter Karran doesn't understand the real value of teacher led nursery.

Mr Hall has been suspended from the Liberal Vannin Party following his sacking from the DEC.

A full statement from Mr Hall and Mr Houghton can be found on the Energy FM News pages.
