During this morning's (14 Feb) sitting of the House of Keys, he gave members an update on the future of the existing bus station, and the proposed Ramsey Transport Interchange.

Mr Harmer says his department is considering a more modest scheme than previously proposed, and will work closely with local stakeholders on future plans.

The Minister says moving the station elsewhere is the preferred option."
