With 24 MHKs now in place, Tynwald returned this week to approve Covid regs which were introduced a few weeks ago.

For those who have never been to Tynwald, the video below outlines the Sword of State being brought into the Chamber and Speaker Juan Watterson being escorted to his chair by his proposer and seconder.

As well as many MHKs appearing for the first time in the Chamber, the island’s new Governor Sir John and Lady Philippa Lorimer attended the sitting. Following a quick ‘hello’ from President of Tynwald Laurence Skelly, Sir John made a short address to the court.

The House of Keys is next to return, when it will select the island’s new Chief Minister on Tuesday October 12.
