Brexit, falling population to be discussed in Tynwald

Brexit, the Government's management structure and the Island's falling population will all be discussed at this month's sitting of Tynwald.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle will ask Tynwald to acknowledge the work of the Council of Ministers as talks continue over the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.

Onchan MHK Julie Edge will call for a review of the management structure of Government, statutory boards and offices.

On the question paper, the plan for the drop in the number of people living on the Isle of Man is up for discussion, along with Government spending on taxis and the Groudle Glen waterwheel.

The may sitting gets underway from 10.30 this morning.
