​Tynwald has established a Select Committee on towed caravans.

It was resolved in Tynwald on 17th June 2014:

' That a Committee of three Members be appointed with powers to take written and oral evidence pursuant to sections 3 and 4 of the Tynwald Proceedings Act 1876, as amended, to consider and to report to Tynwald about the likely advantages and disadvantages of encouraging towed caravan use on the Island, with special reference to the possibilities for the encouragement of tourism, the utility or otherwise of creating a non-residential caravan park and the need for regulating the entry on to the island and usage of caravans.'

The Members elected to the Committee by Tynwald are Mr Geoff Corkish MLC, Mr Alex Downie MLC and Mr David Quirk MHK. The Committee has elected Mr Downie as its chair.

The Committee has decided to give members of the public the opportunity to submit any comments and opinions on issues raised in the resolution quoted above. Submissions should be sent so as to arrive by 5pm on Thursday 10th July 2014. E-mail is preferred but hard copy is equally acceptable.
