Meg Walker of 3FM reports:

The government has revealed a climate scientist appointed to look into the Island’s net-zero emissions strategy was paid £7,000.

A Freedom of Information request to the Cabinet Office asked how much Professor James Curran was paid for his work, as well as any reports he’d produced for the Manx government.

In its response, the Cabinet Office said he’d been given a fee of £7,000 as chair of the Climate Change Transformation Board.
