Strong words from Chief Minister during Pinewood debate

Tue, 19 Jun 2012

The Chief Minister has blasted some politicians who oppose to plans to invest £24 million in Pinewood Film Studios.

In Tynwald today, politicians are being asked to approve the idea in principle.

Several members have spoken out against the idea as they don't think they've been given enough information and are worried that investment in the film industry is high-risk.

During the debate, Allan Bell accused some politicians of running away from a Tynwald resolution to be bold and innovative in developing the economy.

He also believes the investment is no more high-risk than other investments made by the Manx Government and by other countries.
