The Abortion Reform Bill, religious schools and roadworks on Douglas promenade will all be discussed in the House of Keys this morning.

Ramsey MHK Dr Alex Allinson will present his private members bill for its first reading, aiming to update the Island's abortion laws to allow more women to have terminations without travelling to the UK.

Education Minister Graham Cregeen will be asked about his Department's policy on religious schools, while Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer faces a query about the duration of the reconstruction of Douglas Promenade.

The written questions include enquiries about legal aid, the Island's road traffic casualty rate and de-icer at the airport.

The sitting gets underway from 10am.
