An MHK wants answers from the Chief Minister and the Treasury Minister over the Kirk Michael land swap deal.

Yesterday evidence was given to a Tynwald Select Committee by a former employee of Heritage Homes, Charles Lewin.who alleged the government was given misleading information before entering into the arrangement.

Mr Lewin is currently in jail for dishonesty offences.
