The Government's purchase of the Steam Packet Company will be under scrutiny in next week's sitting of the House of Keys.

Douglas South MHK Kate Beecroft wants to know when the Council of Ministers considered alternatives to purchasing the Island's ferry operator, and if Chief Minister Howard Quayle will make minutes of the meeting discussing the purchase public.

She'll also ask the Treasury Minister what reserve funds were used to pay for the £124m takeover, and well as seeking details about the impact on the taxpayer from the Infrastructure Minister.

The House of Keys sits on Tuesday.
