School catchment areas, car tax for Tynwald sitting

School catchment areas, car tax and smoking in cars with children will all be discussed in this month's sitting of Tynwald.

Education Minister Graham Cregeen wants to change some of the catchment areas for the Island's primary schools, including those in the west and Onchan.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer will seek approval to make changes to the price of road tax, having withdrawn similar proposals earlier this year.

On the question paper, Daphne Caine is asking for figures on those caught smoking in cars with under 16s, while orthodontic cover and the taxi inspector also feature.

The sitting gets underway from 10.30am.
