The maximum a farmer could claim from the taxpayer has gone up from a proposed £50,000 to £160,000 under suggested changes to the subsidies system.

Today’s Isle of Man Examiner reveals the figures and its investigation shows how many farmers would lose out if the proposals go ahead.

The Examiner also looks forward to the political highlights of 2015, including the next episode in the VAT sharing saga.

Inside the paper, there’s a picture special on the New Year dips, the latest on the Children’s Centre row, the verdicts of retailers on Christmas trade, 12 pages of business news and all the weekend sports action.

The island’s favourite newspaper is on sale now.
