Government uses public suggestions for savings

Mon, 18 Jun 2018

The Treasury Minister says Government savings are being made as a result of suggestions made by the public.

The Government appealed for ideas to introduce saving and efficiencies through the SAVE programme last year, with over 1300 ideas submitted.

Alfred Cannan will provide an update on the scheme at this month's sitting of Tynwald, including details about the creation of a public defender scheme and creation of an integrated transport strategy.

The Minister also revealed dozens of suggestions have already been implemented by Departments in addition to bigger projects.

The aim of the programme was to identify £25m worth of savings over a five year period.
