Tue, 10 Jul 2012

The Chief Minister doesn't think it's the right time for the Island to be thinking about independence, given the current economic turmoil.

Allan Bell was asked to make a statement about the issue in Tynwald today.

Rushen MHK Laurence Skelly wanted to know if the government has examined the potential benefits of independence recently.
