Public backs work permit changes, says minister

Proposed changes to the current work permit are strongly supported by the public.

A consultation on easing the rules and opening up the system closed at the end of August with more than 150 responses - and the government says the overwhelming majority supported the idea.

Economic Development Minister Laurence Skelly says 90 per cent of people backed changing the current laws.

Proposed reforms will go before October's Tynwald sitting next week.
