Dear Member,

Plenary Sitting – Monday 21 February 2022

You will be aware of the sad news today about the passing of our colleague Christopher Stalford MLA, the Principal Deputy Speaker.

Following engagement with the party whips and the representative of the smaller parties and independents, arrangements have been agreed for tomorrow’s plenary sitting.

At 12pm, I will commence the sitting with Speaker’s business to allow tributes and condolences to be paid to Christopher. At the end of the tributes, I will hold a minute’s silence following which the Assembly sitting will adjourn for the day.

I want to thank all parties for their cooperation and all our thoughts are with Christopher’s family and his party colleagues.


Yours sincerely,

Alex Maskey MLA
