Isle of Man Constitution Bill to get second reading

Tue, 05 Dec 2023

The Isle of Man Constitution Bill 2023 will get its second reading in the House of Keys this morning.

Local politicians will debate whether the Bishop of Sodor and Man should lose their voting powers in Tynwald.

Lawrie Hooper MHK was given leave to introduce a private member's bill last month.

Mr Hooper's bill will seek to retain the bishop's seat in the Manx parliament but remove the right to vote.
