Bell admits direct Scotland competition

The Chief Minister has admitted Scotland could enter in to direct competition with the Isle of Man if its constitutional status becomes similar to ours.

Scotland looks set to hold a referendum on independence from the UK in 2014. 

This could include an option known as ‘devo max’, which would allow Scotland almost all of the self-governance seen in Tynwald.

Speaking to 3FM, Allan Bell said Holyrood was watching the Island closely (see audio).
