May promises to respect Manx interests during Brexit

The British Prime Minister has assured the Manx Government that the Isle of Man's interests will be respected throughout the Brexit process.

Theresa May wrote to Chief Minister Howard Quayle this week to confirm the UK will be engaging with the Island throughout negotiations with the EU.

The assurance comes after a House of Lords Committee reported that the UK's withdrawal from the European Union could affect fishing, agriculture, finance and manufacturing in the Crown Dependencies.

A Council of Ministers report on Brexit is due once the UK triggers Article 50.
