The island’s VAT sharing agreement with the UK could mean we receive less in the future again.

After the UK changed the agreement three times in the last few years (in its favour and cutting Manx government income by a third in the process) the agreement is being looked at again in a ‘data collection exercise’.

Treasury Minister Eddie Teare tells today’s Isle of Man Examiner that could mean our share drops again.

The paper’s main story on page one is also a political report.

The Examiner reveals that Tynwald questions, the time when backbenchers challenge ministers, is coming under review.

Inside, we report on the comments made in a Tynwald scrutiny committee by two ministers and the Chief Minister about the Sefton bailout deal.

The paper also reveals more about the progress of the £13m Cambrian Place (Lord Street) development in Douglas.

Our sports coverage includes all the news from the Island Games, where our athletes topped the medals table.

In the centre pages, we visit Castle Rushen for its special history event, Unlocked.

The Examiner also includes the island’s liveliest letters and comments in our ‘Your Island, Your Views’ pages.

Plus there’s the Examiner’s monthly business special, Business Word, which looks at property among many other topics.

The island’s favourite paper is in the shops now.
