<https://www.tynwald.org.im/business/opqp/sittings/20212026/2021-GD-0085.pdf
>

To be held at 7.30pm, on Monday, November 22nd at the Manx Legion Club,
Douglas.

Workshop groups will focus on the 5 core strands in the plan:
Building great communities;
An Island of health and wellbeing;
A strong and diverse economy;
An environment we can be proud of;
Outstanding lifelong learning and development opportunities for all

This meeting is open to all and will inform Liberal Vannin's response to the
Government's Draft Plan on what we would like to see in the final version.

Paul Weatherall, Liberal Vannin Chair, in announcing this meeting said:

" Liberal Vannin welcomes the opportunity to contribute positively to this
Island Plan. Among the improvements that we'd like to see included in the
final version are: a Youth Strategy; a re-focused Animal Welfare Bill; more
emphasis placed on government being open and transparent in the way it
conducts its business; and improving productivity and value for money across
departments and agencies. We also note that there's no mention of Government
working in partnership with local authorities in meeting these Island-wide
objectives.

The Programme for Government must set out more focused objectives and clear
targets across all areas of government (especially in relation to Housing
and Climate Change), so we can measure Government performance over the next
5 years."
