Public thoughts on EU withdrawal wanted - picture

People on the Isle of Man are being urged to have their say on plans to leave the EU.

The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will start its passage through Tynwald later this year.

The UK's decision to withdraw from the EU means the current relationship the Island has with the EU will end on March 29th 2019.

It's due to have an 'unprecedented effect' on the Island's Legislative Framework.

Government has now launched a six-week public consultation and is encouraging the public, businesses and organisations to comment.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle MHK says: "Our EU (Withdrawal) Bill is intended to make the legislative changes we need to ensure a smooth transition into our new relationship with the EU, including our inclusion within the planned implementation period from March 2019 to December 2020; providing the highest possible level of certainty and stability for Island residents and businesses.

"While some of the decisions we will have to take as a result of Brexit are outside of our direct control, we nonetheless value the importance of the views of the public, and that is why we have decided to launch this consultation."

You can find the consultation HERE.
