Last Minute Changes To Government Re-shuffle

On the eve of the day which could see one of the biggest shake ups in Manx Governments history the Islands Chief Minister has made last minute changes.

 

When he announced his plans to make seven new departments merging together many existing ones, the Islands farming community were up in arms.

 

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry were going to be placed in the new Department of Community, Culture and Leisure - which many farmers thought was inappropriate as it's such a pivotal industry.

 

But now, in a last minute change, Tony Brown has said he will rename one of the new divisions the Department  of Environment, Food and Agriculture - which will include the former DAFF.

 

His proposals will be put to Tynwald tomorrow.
