The Education Minister is to face yet more questions about preschools when Tynwald sits next week.

MLC Dudley Butt, who quit the Department of Education and Children over the decision to cut preschool funding, wants to know which nurseries have expressed an interest in letting the DEC's facilities.

He'll also ask about hourly charges, what checks the staff at nurseries will be subject to, and what the plans are for children in areas where there are no nurseries.

Meanwhile, Garff MHK Steve Rodan will ask Peter Karran whether his Department has considered bringing in a four-day-week at schools in order to save money.

The May sitting of Tynwald gets underway on Tuesday morning.
