Enterprise Minister Laurence Skelly will face a number of questions about tourism figures.

Tourism will be one of the main topics during question time at this month's sitting of Tynwald.

The recently-published Passenger Survey claimed the number of people visiting the Island fell by almost 9% last year.

Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse wants to know how the figures compare to data from the transport and hospitality sectors, while Ayre and Michael member Tim Baker will ask how the numbers compare to recent years.

Enterprise Minister Laurence Skelly will also be asked if he's confident in the survey, and why Manx numbers are down when the other British Isles nations' figures are up.

The April sitting of Tynwald gets underway on Tuesday morning.
