Fri, 06 Apr 2018


The inflation rate on the Isle of Man didn't change last month.

Figures released by the Cabinet Office show the Consumer Prices Index remained at 4.4% in March.

The cost of flights is 32.9% higher than at the same time last year, while sea travel, telephones and household equipment have also seen significant price rises.
