The newest member of Tynwald is to raise the subject of proxy voting in elections at this month's sitting.

Chris Robertshaw, who won the Douglas East by-election two weeks ago, will ask the Chief Minister if he has plans to review the layour and rules of the proxy and absent voters forms.

The run-up to the by-election was marred by an investigation into proxy voting fraud, during which five people were arrested.

It'll be a busy question time for the new MHK, who also has questions on the introduction of an Access to Government Information Bill, the Island's rail services, road tax for motorcyclists and the Children Bill.

Tynwald sits from Tuesday next week.
