§ 14. Valerie Davey
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what proposals the Government have introduced for changes to the voting procedures in the Northern Ireland Assembly. 
§ Dr. John Reid
The Government have not made proposals to change Assembly voting procedures. However, I have established a review under paragraph 36 of Strand One of the Belfast Agreement to look at whether there is scope for some amendment, to which all of the Assembly parties have been invited to participate. The review group will issue a statement after it concludes its discussions next week.
