HoK Speaker to raise refugee concerns

Should Tynwald have a vote on allowing refugees to resettle on the Isle of Man?

That's the question the Speaker of the House of Keys will be asking during this week's sitting of the court.

Rushen MHK Juan Watterson will ask the Chief Minister if members would be allowed to vote on whether the Island will accept refugees.

He says it's an important issue:

His question comes after it was confirmed the Island will not be assisting in resettling Syrian refugees here - instead government confirmed it's sending almost £1 million to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.
