Tynwald to debate camera access

Fri, 06 Jan 2017

Sittings of the Island's parliament could soon be filmed if plans are given the go ahead at this month's Tynwald.

Members will be asked to approve a Code of Conduct for Journalists, which would include allowing accredited members of the media to film, record or broadcast sittings of Tynwald and its branches.

Parliamentary committees could also be filmed, although the media could be asked to withdraw from proceedings at any time.

Tynwald has been increasingly accessible to cameras in recent months, allowing online news channel MTTV to film at the swearing in ceremony for MHKs after the General Election, as well as at October's Tynwald sitting.
