School closures, living wage to be discussed in House of Keys

Tue, 24 Oct 2017

School closure procedures, prescription charges and those earning below the living wage will be discussed in this week's sitting of the House of Keys.

Education Minister Graham Cregeen is being asked to explain how his Department decides whether schools should remain open or close during periods of adverse weather.

Health Minister Kate Beecroft will provide an update on plans to increase prescription charges, while Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas will explain what work the Government is doing to identify those with lower incomes than set out in the recent Living Wage Report.

There's also a motion from Middle MHK Bill Shimmins calling for the House to add extra sittings in September next year.

The sitting gets underway at 10am.
