Tributes paid to Home Affairs Minister

The Speaker of the House of Keys has paid tribute to Bill Malarkey, who died earlier this week.

Juan Watterson says the the House is mourning the loss of a proud Manxman, colleague and parliamentarian.

He described Bill as a 'fighter' - saying he fought hard for those who didn't have a voice, and a man who put everything into his work - noting he was determined to make a difference, even from his hospital bed.

A tribute and period of silence will be held at the next House of Keys sitting on Tuesday as a mark of respect.

The President of Tynwald, Steve Rodan OBE, has also paid tribute - saying his thoughts and prayers are with Pamela and Bill’s family as we share their sorrow.
