MEA Board Members 30 June 2008

Members of Tynwald today received a briefing from the Acting Chairman of the Authority, Mr Eddie Lowey MLC, regarding the MEA Board’s decision, supported by the Council of Ministers to bring to an end proceedings to recover Director’s fees from former Members of the MEA Board.

Mr Lowey stated that, “this was a decision which had taken much deliberation by both the Board and the Council of Ministers, but having taken advice from the legal profession (from 3 sources) it is clear that there would be no further gain for either the Authority, or the community it serves, in pursuing this particular issue any further”.

Mr Lowey went on to confirm that, “the issue of the former Board is an entirely separate matter to that of the former Chief Executive, where legal proceedings were still ongoing”.

Note to Editors: Due to legal sensitivities, the Authority or its representatives are unable to comment further on this matter.
