Two new political members are joining Minister Phil Gawne MHK at the Department of Infrastructure.
Chris Thomas MHK and Juan Turner MLC will take up positions within the Department with immediate effect, working alongside John Houghton MHK and Kate Beecroft MHK. Leonard Singer MHK is leaving the Department.
The Minister said: ‘I am very pleased to welcome Chris Thomas and Juan Turner and would also like to thank Leonard Singer for his input. The Department is facing some major challenges and we will work together to try to secure a more sustainable future for our key services.’
He added: ‘The Department of Infrastructure is at the very forefront of efforts to make the savings required to achieve the national priority of rebalancing public finances. We must also continue to focus on delivering a high quality infrastructure that allows the Isle of Man to attract new investment and generate economic growth. We need to be bold and creative and I look forward to working with the Members and officers to drive forward the Department in the time ahead.’
