The Sefton loans affair will be brought up again in July’s sitting of Tynwald.

There will be a statement from the Chief Minister about the situation.

The purchase of the Middlemarch site (on the corner of Lord Street and Walpole Avenue in Douglas) as part of the Sefton bailout deal is also on the agenda.

Treasury Minister Eddie Teare MHK will ask for Tynwald’s approval for the £3.2m transfer from the capital transactions account.

Chief Minister Allan Bell will also be making a statement about collective responsibility, the practice by which ministers stick together once they’ve made a decision after agreeing to a ‘party line’, the practice adopted in most parliamentary democracies.
