Solway Harvester, meat plant and pre-school for HOK debate

Tue, 12 Jun 2012

The wreck of the Solway Harvester, the Island’s struggling meat plant and pre-school education are all topics being raised in the House of Keys today.

There are six questions up for discussion today - five for oral answer and one for written answer.

Ramsey MHK Leonard wants an update on the Solway Harvester which remains in Douglas Harbour 12 years after the Scottish trawler sank off the Manx coast.

Member for North Douglas Bill Henderson is to ask the Economic Development Minister to make a statement about the operation of Manx Gas, proposed redundancies at the company and retention of its services.

Mr Henderson also wants to know if the Department of Education and Children will carry out a survey to find out if parents are willing to pay for their children to go to government pre- schools.

Rushen MHK Lawrence Skelly will ask about the meat plant at Tromode and whether or not it has a sustainable future.

The sitting will get underway at 10am.
