Decisions Report have a responsible Department, Board or Office.

decision, a short commentary on the action taken by Government and an overview
of the status as to whether the policy decision has been `Implemented','
Ongoing', 'Under Consideration', 'Carried Forward' or 'Closed' (not to be
Implemented). The definitions of status are:
— all necessary work has been completed
— work has begun on complying with the Tynwald
— Department has looked at the Tynwald decision, it has been
discussed but actual work has not yet commenced
Carried Forward — Tynwald decision
relates to a long standing commitment or the Department is waiting to proceed
Closed — Tynwald decision is
not to be implemented as the Department has decided not to proceed, a very
strong justification should be used in the 'Action Taken' column to explain
this decision. Departments must not rely
on this Report as the sole mechanism for reporting to Tynwald Members that a
decision has been closed and must separately report or make a statement to
Tynwald on the reasons why the Tynwald decision is not to be implemented.
The Tynwald Policy Decisions Report is collated and compiled by
the Cabinet Office from the action, information and allocated status provided
by the various Departments, Offices and Statutory Boards.
Further information on any of the Tynwald policy decisions can be
