When submitting your comments please indicate whether you are responding on behalf of an organisation (and if so which organisation) or on your own behalf.

Please let us know whether we can publish your comments in full (including your name or the name of the organisation you are representing), anonymously, or not at all (noting that if you select this option your response will only be part of a larger summary response document).

All information in responses, including personal information may be subject to publication or disclosure in accordance with the access to information regimes (these are primarily the Freedom of Information Act 2015 and the Data Protection Act 2018).  If you want your response to remain confidential, you should explain why confidentiality is necessary and your request will be agreed to only if it is appropriate in the circumstances.  An automatic confidentiality disclaimer generated by your IT system will not, of itself, be regarded as binding.

All responses submitted will be held within the Isle of Man Government’s consultation hub and will be treated in accordance with the privacy policy.
