Poverty committee seeking more public views

A Tynwald committee is looking for more public views on the subject of poverty, following an initial call for evidence.

The Select Committee on Poverty recently held a workshop for Tynwald members on the subject to discuss related topics with government representatives and the third sector.

MHK Clare Bettison called the workshop an 'excellent opportunity' for politicians to work through key components and contributors to poverty and allow officials to  'try and assess the bigger picture.'

Written submissions can be sent to the Committee Secretariat at Legislative Buildings in Douglas.
