Assembly and Executive Review Committee
Date: 08 April 2008
Reference: AER 19- 07/08
The Assembly and Executive Review Committee met today with Mr Jimmy Spratt succeeding Rt. Hon. Jeffrey Donaldson MP as the Chairperson.
The Committee discussed the forward work programme and agreed the focus of its attention should be the issue of multiple mandates.
The Committee decided to invite the political parties to submit revised position papers on the issue of multiple mandates, to take particular account of the recent announcement in relation to the Review of Public Administration and the proposal for 11 Councils. The Committee also proposes to consider the merit of investigating how the issue of multiple mandates is dealt with in other jurisdictions.
The Committee agreed a revised forward work programme and will meet on a fortnightly basis.
