Tuesday 20th October – First Tynwald Sitting

9.30am – sworn in. I am now able to sit in Tynwald chamber and indeed did so until 9.15pm this evening.  A very long day – 38 questions with 48 items on the order paper and we start tomorrow with 40 to go – another late day I suspect. My first Tynwald question and a good result for the constituency, Minister for Infrastructure Phil Gawne has confirmed that the remedial works to finish the Tackle Box corner site in Foxdale will be completed in the near future and there is commitment in the next financial year to complete the much needed resurfacing and drainage works to the main road (A3 through Foxdale).

At lunchtime we attended a briefing on the 2016 Destination Management Plan for Tourism – 2016/2020. There was some good news and some bad news.  Some areas of tourism are growing and certainly the quality of our product is improving. We have a great story to tell. There are also a lot of good ideas in the pipeline.
