The review was approved by Tynwald in June 2015 and supposed to have been published in April 2016. It was announced (01.03.16) that Lord Lisvane is to conduct it during March and May and his report presented in July.

The terms of reference are to:
  • Examine the functions of the Branches of Tynwald
  • Determine the efficacy of the functions of the branches of Tynwald
  • Determine the scrutiny structure required by the parliament. 
  • Recommend options for reform where applicable.

Under the Inquiries (Evidence) Act 2003, the reviewer can ask people to present their thoughts at an Inquiry by written submission to the reviewer, it does not preclude the reviewer from meeting with interested parties to discuss their views but does require the reviewer to allow submission of views to be in public and open to all in a formal inquiry setting.

So if you have got any comments or suggestions do let Lord Lisvane know!
