Lib Van content with means testing

Government is "moving in the right direction with means testing" - that from the LiIberal Vannin Party.

Lib Van had positively responded to the public consultation, saying it identifies potentially reasonable, consistent and cost-effective ways of introducing it here.

Member, Ramsey MHK, Lawrie Hooper, says the party is largely in agreement with the document in principle - with minor suggestions for improvement.

The Cabinet Office wants Treaury to be given responsibility for testing, which it insists won't take a 'one size fits all' approach.

Mr Hooper says it appears to be taking a common sense route to a fairer system.
