An MHK is to ask Tynwald to consider placing the Steam Packet Company in public ownership.

David Cannan will table a motion at this month's sitting asking that a committee be set up to look into the matter.

Mr Cannan believes the Island needs to be confident it has a reliable passenger and freight ferry service.

The Steam Packet has indicated it may have to make job cuts after rival firm Mezeron started a new freight service.
