 Emergency Laws to Hold Southern 100

Emergency laws are to be rushed through parliament to allow the Southern 100 motorbike races to take place later in the year. The government has drafted a special bill to allow the event to be staged in September if organisers are forced to abandon the traditional July date because of fears over foot-and-mouth disease.
The Southern 100 committee fears the event, due to be held on July 16-19, may have to be called off if the disease crisis has not abated.

If it is it could go ahead on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September. But road racing is not allowed on a Sunday so the government has agreed the emergency bill just in case.

It will be given a first reading at a special sitting of the House of Keys this week
