On 19th July 2019 the Committee took oral evidence from representatives of the Department of Infrastructure and a number of businesses based on the Promenade. The Hansard transcript of the oral hearing is now available on the Tynwald website.

The Committee issued a call for written evidence on 1st August 2019.  The responses have now been published on the Tynwald website.

The Committee was established by Tynwald in October 2016. The Members elected to the Committee are Mr Rob Callister MHK (Chair), Mrs Clare Barber (née Bettison) MHK, and Mr Chris Robertshaw MHK.  Mr Callister has recused himself from this inquiry because he is a member of the Department for Enterprise, one of the Departments under scrutiny.  The Committee has elected Mrs Barber as its Chair for this inquiry.
