The Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister today announced its terms of reference for consideration of European issues.
Chairperson, Mr Danny Kennedy commented that the Committee had given the issue a great deal of consideration and said:
“It is essential that the Northern Ireland Assembly’s role in Europe is developed and established. There is much that can be achieved by promoting Northern Ireland, its industries and its skills. To achieve this, the Committee aims to reach satisfactory conclusions to European policy issues for the people of Northern Ireland.”
Mr Kennedy confirmed that the Committee will be consulting widely with Northern Ireland’s representatives in the various European institutions and key stakeholders in the business and community field.
