The Chief Minister has taken up the role of Minister for Enterprise.

It follows the election of Laurence Skelly MLC as President of Tynwald earlier this week.

Upon election, Mr Skelly was required to relinquish his role as a minister, in line with the Constitution Act 1990.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle said: “With the final scheduled sitting of Tynwald taking place this week and an imminent general election, I have made the decision to take over from Mr Skelly as Minister for Enterprise, rather than make a new appointment to the Council of Ministers.”

The Chief Minister was previously a Member for the Department of Economic Development and a Member of Tynwald’s Economic Policy Review Committee.
