Guidance for the Media using Parliament Buildings during the Assembly Elections

This Guidance provides advice to the media working in Parliament Buildings during the Election period.

Information for the Press & Media

The Northern Ireland Assembly is keen to develop positive working relationships with the media. We have a press accreditation scheme that makes access to parliament buildings easier and we have a media handbook that sets out clearly where filming and interviews can take place, what parts of the building are accessible to the media and more.
