I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to return to the Department of Tourism and Leisure, a Division which has always been close to my heart. I will endeavour to continue with the excellent work that my predecessors have already carried out and together with the support and commitment of an already strong and dynamic team, will remain committed to raise the profile of the island as a tourism destination and provide first class sports and leisure facilities for our local community. ‘I fully recognise the importance of building on the good publicity the Department already receives and look forward to providing Manx residents and our visitors with facilities and publicity of the highest quality.’
