Chief Minister looking forward to lively public debate 25 June 2012

CHIEF Minister Allan Bell MHK says he is looking forward to a lively public debate during tomorrow evening’s (Tuesday, June 26) community meeting at Peel Centenary Centre.

The event, which starts at 7.30pm, will provide an opportunity for local residents to engage with Government Ministers on matters of national importance. One of the areas for discussion will be the independent review of the Scope of Government which looks at how public services are delivered and whether some could be placed outside mainstream government. There will also be an open question and answer session where members of the public can ask Ministers about key issues and challenges facing the Isle of Man.

The Chief Minister, who will chair the meeting, said:

‘I hope members of the public will take this opportunity to express their views on a range of subjects. In particular, I am looking to gather feedback about the report into the Scope of Government in the Isle of Man. The June sitting of Tynwald provided Members with an opportunity to voice their initial opinions on the acceptability or otherwise of the proposals from the independent review team. I am now looking forward to hearing the views of the audience in Peel as part of a wide-ranging public debate.’

The community meeting at Peel Centenary Centre is free and open to all members of the public. There is a limit on the number of people the venue can accommodate and seats will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. No bookings will be taken.

The Scope of Government Reports can be viewed on the Government website here
