Funding for a new baggage facility for Ronaldsway will be debated in Tynwald today.

New EU regulations mean the outgoing baggage system needs to be upgraded by the start of September, or the Isle of Man Airport risks losing its UK domestic airport status.

Infrastructure Minister David Cretney will ask Tynwald members to approve £2.97million worth of spending for the project.

A new security fence for the Isle of Man Food Park, Tynwald members' pensions and baggage handlers will also be discussed.

The march sitting gets underway from 10.30am
