On Tuesday 16th March 2020 a proclamation by the Governor in Council was signed. This proclaims a state of emergency under Manx law by the Lieutenant Governor. Professor of Law, Peter Edge has written a blog post explaining this unusual legislative process.
Professor Edge has also produced a post explaining the first set of Regulations under the Emergency Powers Act 1936 - read this here.
Our thanks go to Professor Peter Edge for allowing us to reproduce this text.
