Have your say

This week’s Examiner reveals that a number of civil servants who don’t need their cars for work get free parking in Douglas town centre.

Last week we were told, and reported in good faith, that it was only those who needed their cars for their jobs.

The story is on page one of this week’s paper.

Also inside, we report on a select committee looking into the future of rates.

Astonishingly, the part of government that is supposed to oversee local government wasn’t consulted about Treasury’s plans for the rates.

That state of affairs became apparent as the meeting went ahead.

This week’s paper also reveals that planning permission has been granted for another 144 homes in Peel, much to at least one commissioner’s annoyance.

The paper includes a round-up of all the news, sport, readers’ letters and Terry Cringle’s nostalgia pages.

It’s in the shops now.
