Public grills CoMin on Pinewood investment plan

Sat, 30 Jun 2012

Members of the public will get another chance to quiz the Council of Ministers later this year.

The second in a series of public meetings which was held in Peel this week was successful, according to the Chief Minister.

Over 150 people attended to hear from CoMin about the Scope of Government report.

Ministers also faced a robust grilling about the £24m Pinewood Studio Investment plans.

This left Allan Bell to defend the government's stance on the issue and he stressed the need for the Island to take calculated risks to grow the economy.

The next meeting will be at the Erin Arts Centre on 23rd October.

Allan Bell introduced the meetings as he believed the last government wasn't seen to communicate properly with the public.[play media file below]
