Tynwald question reveals the cost of answering Tynwald questions

Wed, 13 Jul 2011

It's cost around £62,000 to answer the questions asked in parliament by Manx politicians during this political year.

697 were asked in the House of Keys, Tynwald and Leg Co since October 2010.

The member asking the most questions was Onchan MHK Peter Karran at 291.

Taking man hours and average wages into account, it's estimated each one costs £89.

These figures were revealed in a written answer from Tynwald, but it's recognised that only a simple calculation has been used and it may not be totally accurate.
