The Isle of Man's mobile users could still be liable to pay EU roaming charges due to being a non-member state.

In today's House of Keys sitting, Chief Minister Howard Quayle MHK faced questions by Lawrie Hooper MHK, who wanted to know whether the Communications Commission could reduce the fees.

Mr Quayle said that Government could investigate prices, but not regulate.

There is an EU blanket ban coming into force on Thursday 15 June, which see roaming charges ended in member countries.

WOMEN from across Greater Manchester will be traveling to a mass demonstration in London to protest the lack of information given to them about their pensions. The event coincides with Budget Day and is also International Women’s Day. Women from all over Greater Manchester are members of the national Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign. Gill Harris, a co-ordinator of the Leigh WASPI group, says that in 1995, the Government changed the law so that the age at which a woman could receive a state pension would move in line with men to 65.
