Details of RSE report to remain confidential to avoid 'prejudice'

Wed, 15 Mar 2023

The Education Minister says details about an investigation into RSE lessons on the Island will remain confidential.

Julie Edge refused to say how and when the report will be compiled when questioned during Wednesday's House of Keys sitting.

It's understood a 'lawyer and former police officer' will produce the external independent report for the Department of Education, Sport and Culture.

Ms. Edge said the investment is a "matter of priority".

Speaking to Isle of Man Television, Chief Minister Alfred Cannan said a further statement by the Education Minister is expected next week:
