Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart said,
“The fundamental problems threatening the stability of devolved government is the undermining of the consent and cross-community support provisions at the heart of the Belfast Agreement.
Reform of the institutions should be about ensuring good government and building a better Northern Ireland, not being used as a short-term tool to punish or embolden, one party or community,
Entering a discussion about key protections and safeguards as if they are the problem is deeply inappropriate, unwise and the last thing Northern Ireland needs now.
The report ignores many of these key issues and that is why DUP members have submitted a minority report.”
