Homefield site could be put back on market

The Home Affairs Minister admits he could place his Department's former headquarters back on the market in the near future.

Bill Malarkey took the Homefield site off the market when he took charge of the Department last year.

The Minister revealed it's currently being used by the Isle of Man Constabulary, but the police's requirement for the site will soon end, meaning it could be put on sale again.

Despite the possibility of the property going back on the market soon, Mr Malarkey insists he was right not to keep the site on the market as his Department still had need for it.

The Department of Home Affairs moved out of Homefield to its current headquarters in Tromode in 2015.
