馬恩島Covid審查範圍擴大,涵蓋整個大流行病應對措施

對馬恩島政府在冠狀病毒大流行期間的行動的審查已經擴大。

Tynwald支持Kate Brunner KC對調查的修改,她要求將調查範圍擴大到2019年12月,直到4月取消限制。

內政部長Jayne Poole-Wilson說,這些變化將使審查涵蓋 "政府的全部反應"。

審查的變化還賦予布魯納女士決定她可能公布哪些證據的權力,同時考慮保密性、實用性和成本。

調整後的調查範圍還賦予部長會議和Tynwald公共賬目委員會(PAC)權力,在未經議會批准的情況下對其職權範圍做進一步的修改。

Poole-Wilson女士說,這是一種 "及時 "的方式,可以隨着審查的進展,在需要時做出其他改變。

PAC主席Juan Watterson SHK說,委員會承認其在 "確保審查的獨立性 "方面的作用。

Poole-Wilson女士說,Tynwald在2021年11月支持審查,以替代 "昂貴和漫長的 "公共調查。

A review into the actions of the Isle of Man government during the coronavirus pandemic has been expanded.

Tynwald backed changes to the probe by Kate Brunner KC, who requested it be widened to cover December 2019 up to the removal of restrictions in April.

Home Affairs Minister Jayne Poole-Wilson said the changes would see the review cover "the entirety of government's response".

The changes to the review also give Ms Brunner the power to decide which evidence she may publish while considering confidentially, practicality and cost.

The tweaked remit of the probe also give Council of Ministers and Tynwald Public Accounts Committee (PAC) the power to make further changes to its terms of reference without parliamentary approval.

Ms Poole-Wilson said this was a "timely" way of making other changes if needed as the review progresses.

PAC chairman Juan Watterson SHK said the committee acknowledged its role in "ensuring the independence of the review".

Tynwald had backed the review in November 2021 as an alternative to a "costly and lengthy" public inquiry, Ms Poole-Wilson said.
