Chief Minister to be asked about refugee vote

Accepting refugees to the Isle of Man will be discussed when Tynwald sits next week.

Speaker of the House of Keys Juan Watterson wants to know whether the decision to welcome refugees would be put to a vote in the Manx parliament.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle recently confirmed he would review the Government's stance on refugees from Syria.

The Council of Ministers chose not to accept refugees from Syria last year, but a petition calling for the decision to be reversed gained over 1,000 signatures.

The Chief Minister will provide the information when Tynwald sits on Tuesday.
