Government still assessing Brexit impact

The Manx Government says it's still assessing how the UK's withdrawal from the European Union will affect the Island.

A statement from Chief Minister Howard Quayle said there were no surprises in this week's Queen's Speech, which included plans for eight Bills dealing with Brexit.

The Cabinet Office insists it has been planning for Britain leaving the EU since before last year's referendum, but warns there is still more detail to emerge.

Mr Quayle plans to prioritise legislation that deals with the Repeal Bill, immigration and customs, as well as agriculture and fisheries.

More details on the planned legislative changes will be revealed early in the next parliamentary year.
