According to the answer already quoted:

Within Executive Government the variances mainly relate to pension costs of former Government employees. Income is currently about on budget, with expenditure £1.7m over budget YTD.

So it's because inflation is higher than budgeted  all the public sector pensions, which I think Chris Thomas once said are indexed to UK RPI (currently 11.8%), will go up more than forecast.

The following paragraph is also telling:

A Tynwald Auditor General (TAG) is still to be appointed so there is no expenditure so far.

Does anyone think there might be a link between this and the rest of the answer?


That's the figure for year to date ending May 22. The full projection is for a deficit of over £9.5m - is that all to be forecast inflation linked public sector pension payments? It'd be a joke were it not such a colossal amount

As I have posted on another thread food or fuel vouchers or both is the way to go this helps the two commodities that are hurting the most.   Free transport would be a big help to a lot of people.    Dig into whatever is left of the 42 million or however much is left of it which has been put away with no plan in mind.

 

The £42m in hard cash doesn't exist. It will come out of the general revenue account. It's just a magical number they've plucked from the air plus a contingency to ensure that Cyril's Servants are looked after irrespective of whether they manage steer us to carbon neutral status by 2050 or not..

A few on here will go ape with that suggestion. £42m+ is their play thing, but at the end of the day, the Manx population is more important than a few individuals having tantrums, over a pot of money. 

If they'd spent that 42mil on wind power a few years ago we wouldn't even need this thread.

Dipping into the rainy day fund when it’s already literally been pissing it down for nearly 3 years.

Big savings here though. Proposal to reinstate railway bridges at a cost of over £2M has been scrapped though (P9, Independent)

Doesn't air always move so you set them where they will have uninterrupted airflow?

Sounds like a good theory to me. 

I'm told that high levels, even on days like today, like you say, the turbines will still move. Generated power will be less, but even on seemingly windless days there is still some generation.
