Today’s Isle of Man Examiner has more on the story and asks Treasury Minister Eddie Teare for his views.

The paper also includes:

News about the Southern 100 sailings beginning to sell out already

An interview with former teacher Mary Stuart about her work in Kenya

The Examiner has also been doing some sums and worked out that, if the figures given in Tynwald are correct, a night in the cells in Douglas police station, costs about the same as a night in the Ritz in London.
