Chief Minister attends Tory Party Conference

The Chief Minister of the Isle of Man will be attending the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester this week.

Howard Quayle will be joined by Treasury Minister Alfred Cannan and Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer at the event.

The Manx Government claims the visit will strengthen relations with UK Government figures and raise awareness of the Island's value to the British economy.

Mr Quayle also hopes the trip will allow the Manx delegates to gain further insight into the Tories plans for the UK after leaving the European Union.

The Chief Minister and Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas had planned to be at the Labour conference in Brighton last week, but weather disrupted their travel plans.
