Do come and find out more how these could impact on our Island life. It's not too late to modify the Bill as it is now to be considered by a Select Committee of the House of Keys and your opinion is valuable - it's a live political issue.

This is the last P A G Public Meeting of the year, so please do make every effort to attend.

Let your friends know - everyone is welcome - admission free!
