An MHK is to ask about growth in the Island's economy at this month's sitting of Tynwald.

Alfred Cannan will ask Economic Development Minister John Shimmin which sectors have been identified for growth.

He also wants to know what discussions the Minister has been having with banking managers on the Island.

In the House of Keys last month, Mr Shimmin confirmed that he was holding meetings with the banking sector to bring more finance business to the Island.

Since then, AIB has announced its withdrawal from the Island.

Mr Shimmin will answer Mr Cannan's questions in Tynwald tomorrow.
