MHK to quiz members on fast food outlets

An MHK will put forward a series of questions in Tynwald next week regarding fast food outlets on Island.

Middle MHK Bill Shimmins will ask Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister, Geoffrey Boot, if he supports the provisions of more of them on Peel Road in Douglas, and what action he is taking to reduce litter from outlets.

Mr Shimmins will then quiz Infrastructure Minister, Ray Harmer on the subject - and wants to know what he is doing to reduce traffic congestion caused by fast food franchises on that stretch.

The sitting will take place on Tuesday at 10.30am in Douglas.
