Ex MHKs case going to court?p
Two former MHKS who lodged legal complaints against the government for age discrimination have their hearing dates set for October.
Ex Peel and Glenfaba MHK Geoffrey Boot and Garff MHK Martyn Perkins, who were ousted in September’s election, submitted their claims to the Employment and Equality Tribunal.
Mr Perkins said he could not comment on the legal process.
The setting of a hearing date does not necessarily mean that a settlement may not still be reached before this time, through the conciliation procedure.
Both claims are now listed as being against ‘The Isle of Man Treasury’, though they initially were against ‘Isle of Man Government (Public Administration) – which is not a legal entity.
