Chief Minister to be asked about living wage

The introduction of a living wage on the Isle of Man will be discussed in this month's sitting of Tynwald.

Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper will ask the Chief Minister whether there are plans to bring in such a provision on the Island.

The living wage - which is already in place in the UK - varies from place to place, but is designed to give workers a high enough pay packet to cover the basic costs of living.

The minimum wage is currently being reviewed on the Island.

Howard Quayle will give his views on the living wage at Tynwald question time on Tuesday.
