Tynwald To Consider School Extension & Noble’s Hospital Overspending

The future of the NHS, overspending at Noble’s Hospital and funding for a school extension will be discussed in Tynwald today.

A report on overspending at Noble’s will be presented to the court with a number of recommendations, including that no new services should be introduced until spending is under control.

Former Health Minister Kate Beecroft will seek support motions asking Tynwald to commit to not privatising the National Helath Service and ensuring that the NHS meets the needs of everyone.

Meanwhile, Education Minister Graham Cregeen is seeking approval to spend £3.6m on an extension and alteration to St Mary’s RC Primary School.

Winter tyres on buses, catering at the college and charity legislation are among the topics on the question paper.

The sitting gets underway at 10.30am.
