Petitions handed over at Tynwald Day Ceremony

Tue, 05 Jul 2011

Petitions have been presented at the Tynwald Ceremony.

The annual event allows residents of the Isle of Man to ask for a Tynwald committee to look into their grievance.

Amongst this year's petitions, Neil Cushing from the Ballawattleworth Action Group is asking for finalised plans for a Peel by-pass to be made available [play clip]

There's also a petition by Onchan Squash Club into the involvement of local authorities in planning applications, and Sulby resident David Sykes wants to see more done to prevent flooding in the area [play clip]

Mr Sykes says a previous investigation by a Tynwald select committee made a number of recommendations ten years ago which are now being ignored, and he's like to see them enforced.
