In the October 2007 sitting of Tynwald John Houghton asked again about the introduction of an Ombudsman.

Although the answer was positive, it should be noted that,in answering another question the Attorney General stated that it was no exaggeration to say that his Chambers are completely overloaded with work, with 58 Bills to be drafted before July 2008.#mce_temp_url#

Chief Minister Brown has issued information to members of Tynwald in response to a Manx Radio interview P A G had on 'Morning Mandate' (10 July 2007) and on 'Talking Heads' the following day. This may be viewed here.

It is encouraging that P A G gets recognition, dare one say acceptance, by the Minister. It's interesting that Petitions for Redress of Grievance will continue and also that an Auditor General is promised.
