The Chief Minister says the Freedom of Information Bill will go before Tynwald this parliamentary year.

Allan Bell says the legislation will be brought in as soon as the balance between right to access and confidentiality is found.

The Bill was put on hold whilst further investigations into the cost of the legislation were carried out.
