The Chief Minister of the Isle of Man, Howard Quayle, has reinforced the island's commitment to maintaining positive links with members of the United Kingdom Parliament in a recent address to the British-Manx All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG).
His speech to the London meeting of the APPG, comprising members of parliament (MPs) and peers from all the main UK political parties, continues a program of engagement with Westminster and the City of London to raise awareness of the Isle of Man's position on a range of important issues, the Isle of Man Government said.
During his speech, Quayle provided an insight into recent developments in the Isle of Man, including an update on its Brexit engagement program and the progression of new Beneficial Ownership legislation.
Speaking after the meeting, Quayle said: "The Isle of Man enjoys an excellent working relationship with the UK Parliament and I am keen to enhance those links through the work of the APPG. The meeting in Westminster provided an opportunity to emphasize the island's position as a well-regulated and responsible international business center that makes a significant contribution to the British economy."
During his visit to London, the Chief Minister also held discussions with Oliver Heald, Minister of State for Courts and Justice with responsibility for the Crown Dependencies, and Andrew Parmley, Lord Mayor of the City of London.
