MHKs unanimously back TV cameras in Manx parliament

Isle of Man politicians have unanimously backed a move to allow accredited journalists to film in the Manx parliament Tynwald.

The new code of conduct means journalists can apply for permits to film inside the Tynwald chamber.

It brings the Isle of Man into line with the rest of the British Isles - 27 years after the first House of Commons speech was televised in 1989.

Speaker of the House of Keys Juan Watterson said restricting TV access is "no longer justifiable."
