An MHK has been removed from the Government's SAVE team after voting against the budget.

Ramsey member Lawrie Hooper was once of four MHKs not to vote in favour of Alfred Cannan's financial plans for the next year.

Mr Hooper revealed he's since been taken off the team, which is looking at suggestions from the public to find Government savings.

The MHK says he's disappointed but not surprised by the move, and wished the Treasury Minister the best of luck with the initiative.
