A politician who wanted women to have the right to breastfeed in public is disappointed his bill isn't likely to make through the House of Keys.

Juan Watterson's private members bill was voted off to a committee yesterday, despite at first appearing to have support from members.

The Rushen MHK wants it to be illegal for women to be banned from breastfeeding their babies in public places around the Island.

Mr Watterson is miffed as to why he's not got the support he wanted..[play clip]
