Steam Packet question won't be asked in Tynwald this month

Tue, 15 Nov 2011

We'll have to wait longer before we find out how much an investigation into Steam Packet prices cost the taxpayer.

It was announced in the summer that although the Office of Fair Trading began the inquiry, we'll never know the findings.

The report was shelved as it was deemed that the information it contained was no longer relevant, as there'd been changes at the ferry company.

In Tynwald today, House of Keys Speaker Steve Rodan was due to ask the Chairman of the OFT how much the report cost and whether he would make a statement.

However, the question was pulled from the agenda and is due to be asked next month instead.

No reason was given.
