Visit by Nottingham Magistrates 28 October 2004

A party from the Nottinghamshire Magistrates Association is visiting the Island over the next two days to learn more about the Island's justice system, parliamentary history and present day Government arrangements. The Association will see the Island's Digital Audio Recording system in our courts, and the Jurors' video produced locally to assist prospective jurors.

It is the first time a delegation of this sort has visited the Island and the visit, at the request of the Nottinghamshire Magistrates' Association, is seen as useful in continuing the building of good relations and awareness between the Isle of Man and counterparts in the United Kingdom.

The Nottinghamshire delegation, consisting of UK magistrates and their partners, has previously visited a number of Courts in Europe, Ireland and Scotland over the past few years. During their stay in the Island they will be visiting the Island's Courthouse complex, Legislative Council Chamber, Tynwald Hill and the Manx Museum.

The delegation will also meet with local magistrates, including Mrs Mary Cringle, the Chairman of the Isle of Man Association, the Mayor of Douglas, Councillor Ritchie McNicholl JP, and the President of Tynwald, the Hon Noel Cringle, before attending a reception at Government House to meet with members of the Island's Judiciary and His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, Air Marshall Ian Macfadyen and Mrs Macfadyen.

Chief Registrar Angela Lloyd-Humphreys who has been co-ordinating arrangements for the visit said:

"We are very pleased to host the visit of the Nottinghamshire Magistrates Association, and are delighted that they have shown such an interest in the Isle of Man. The visit will enable discussions and comparisons on a number of justice system issues to take place, as well as allowing the various Government agencies involved to highlight to the visiting party some of the unique aspects of our parliamentary and government arrangements."
