Patient transfers, national insurance on Keys agenda

Patient transfers, national insurance and school catchment areas will all be discussed in the House of Keys this morning.

Health Minister Kate Beecroft will continue to face queries from her colleagues about her Department's decision to take on a new patient taxi transfer provider.

Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper is interested to know if the Island plans to make National Insurance changes like those outlined in the UK's recent budget - although the British Government has since scrapped the plans.

Meanwhile Education Minister Graham Cregeen will reveal whether there are plans to review school catchment area boundaries.

The House of Keys sits from 10am.
