Mr Robinson said,

“On Monday, this Humble Address will give Parliament the opportunity to not only express its support for the restoration of devolution but the Agreement that led to it and the constitutional reality of Northern Ireland’s place with the United Kingdom. As a result, not only the Government but the Labour party will have the opportunity to affirm the foundational importance of the Acts of Union, that Executive Power rests in His Majesty the King and that there is no legal or political basis for Joint Authority in Northern Ireland.

Ultimately, people need to recognise the Union is in the hands of the people rather than any court or Party. It is by making sure Northern Ireland is successful and prosperous for its people that the Union will be best protected.”
