Item 5: Order Paper 122/11-15  4 March 2013

Motion: Draft Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill

That this Assembly notes the publication of the draft Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland; supports the commitment to bring to an end the practice of dual mandates; welcomes the recognition within the Bill that political donations in Northern Ireland require sensitivity; acknowledges that further work is needed on measures that are still under consideration for potential inclusion in the Bill, including the creation of a formal opposition in the Assembly, the size of the Assembly and the length of the Assembly term; and calls on all political parties which support inclusive and consensual politics to play a full role at Westminster, or to forfeit the expenses that they claim from Parliament.

[Mr M Nesbitt]
[Mr T Elliott]
[Mrs S Overend]

The Speaker has selected the following amendment for debate:

Proposed: Leave out from ‘welcomes’ to ‘sensitivity’ and substitute:

‘believes that the declaration and publication of donations to political parties in Northern Ireland should be handled in the same manner as donations to political parties in Great Britain’
