Tynwald is to be the setting for a Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Small Branches committee workshop.

Some 16 delegates representing the regions of Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, CAA, (Caribbean, Americas and Atlantic) the Pacific and South East Asia will be attending the two-day CPA-funded workshop on Tuesday, August 18, and Wednesday, August 19, when they will be exploring the diverse approaches among small branches to committee systems in their respective legislatures.

Attendees will also have an opportunity on Thursday, August 20, to visit the Old House of Keys and Castle Rushen.

The proposal that the CPA host the workshop in the Isle of Man follows a recommendation from the Clerk of Tynwald Roger Phillips to CPA assistant director of programmes Arlene Bussette.
