The MHK suspended from the Liberal Vannin Party in a row over the future of preschool education on the Island says he'll consider carefully how best he can serve the people of Onchan and fulfil his duties as an MHK.

Zac Hall was suspended from the Party after being sacked from the Department of Education and Children for failing to vote on a motion on preschool.

Mr Hall now says he should have resigned from the Department before the vote.

The MHK, who was elected in September, says a statement from the Party about his suspension was inappropriate and unprofessional.

He also questions whether it is the other Liberal Vannin MHKs Peter Karran and Kate Beecroft who have gone against the party manifesto rather than him.

The Party says Mr Hall will be brought to account for not following the party's manifesto.
