The pension supplement could be ditched, the Isle of Man Examiner has learned.
It is one of the options being considered by politicians who are looking at ways to tackle the Isle of Man’s impending National Insurance fund crisis, which we reported here last week.
The Examiner reports on a number of different options which are being considered.
The main story on page 1 is a story about a campaigner who’s planning to petition Tynwald to introduce tougher regulations in animal welfare amid concerns about puppy dealers.
The paper also reports:
>The latest on Callow’s Yard. Commissioners in Castletown believe a solution to the planning wrangle is close.
>How a court dealt with the discovery of Viking artefacts.
>Peel’s sewage problems. The government is aiming to meet 1976 standards, not modern ones, causing anger in the town.
>St George’s FA Cup Final win.
>A plan to introduce a fleet of battery-powered bicycles.
>What’s in store for the newly-restored Quirk’s Croft cottage in Cregneash.
>Haven Homes’ plan for 23 new houses.
>A heritage centre plan for the north of the island
>The Easter Festival of Running
