First Tynwald of 2012 gets under way

Today sees the first sitting of Tynwald this year and it promises to be an eventful affair.

Kate Beecroft will demand the full details of the economic impact caused by the string of Steam Packet cancellations over the past three months.

Answering the Douglas South MHK’s question will be the Economic Development Minister John Shimmin.

MLC Juan Turner will ask the Home Affairs Minister what restrictions have been imposed on pubs and clubs preventing entry after certain times, and how this can be implemented in relation to the 24-hour licensing law.

However, it’s Peter Karran who will be the busiest member over the next few hours as he faces now fewer than six questions from government colleagues.

Among the topics will be his latest plans for university and higher education funding – that will be asked by Alf Cannon.

The Michael MHK will also ask Mr Karran about his plans to merge the Isle of Man College and Business School.

Speaker of the House Steve Rodan will aim a hat-trick of questions at Onchan MHK Karran.

These will cover the expense of starting up the new centralised pupil data system, the effectiveness of it and it’s annual running cost.
