Review of Manx National Heritage 30 November 2006

The Chief Minister today announced the publication of a supplementary report produced by the Review of the Scope and Structure of Government Committee relating to Manx National Heritage.

At its sitting in July 2006, Tynwald resolved:-

“That Tynwald views with concern the failure in practice of Manx National Heritage to be politically accountable for the conduct of its affairs and requests the Council of Ministers to refer to the committee looking into the Scope and Structure of Government the need for the statutes and constitution governing Manx National Heritage to be updated in order that Manx National Heritage becomes more formally accountable to this Honourable Court.”

The report has now been received by the Council of Ministers and will be laid before Tynwald at its sitting in December 2006. The Chief Minister said:-

“As with the substantive report, the Council of Ministers believed it important for this supplementary report on Manx National Heritage to be published although consideration of its findings should, like the substantive report, be a matter for the next administration. In addition, the supplementary report was produced at the specific request of Tynwald, and as such, the Council of Ministers considered it appropriate that it be formally laid before Tynwald at the earliest opportunity, although there is no intention for it to be debated at the sitting."

Receipt of this report now represents the culmination of the work conducted by the Government Review Committee which commenced in September 2005. The Chief Minister, in thanking the Review Committee, commented:-

“They have worked extremely hard over the last year or so and produced some thought provoking ideas and proposals for the future. I am pleased that the Review’s findings, in the substantive report, received such prominence during the General Election campaign and I am sure the next administration, when it is formed, will wish to look closely at the proposals as one of its first key tasks.”

The Supplementary Report can be obtained from the Tynwald Library or downloaded from
