The board of the Manx Utilities Authority has confirmed it will review the controversial toilet tax - and bring in a fairer system from next year.

But it says the current £50-a-household sewerage charge will stay - and no appeals against this year’s flat rate will be considered.

In a statement, the MUA said: ‘The board has confirmed that it will review the proposed sewerage charge, and appeals process, and is committed to working together with Treasury to review other charging options for 2015/16.

‘In this regard, the board is committed to ensuring a fair charging system is applied in order to compensate for the year-on-year reduction in revenue from Treasury, and is currently considering the options in this respect.

‘These options will be presented to Treasury and Council of Ministers in due course.’
