Or who is guarding the guards? The Newsletter argues that without the Asssmbly to scrutinise the acts of the direct rule ministers, the public needs to keep a vigilant watch. It quotes Stormont Strategy:

“It is simply not good enough that we should all have to rely on questions put down in the House of Commons by MPs, and the odd press release, as the only way of dragging information out of ministers, who, with limited time each week in Northern Ireland, and, with perhaps three departments to oversee, can only be expected to devote less than 10 hours per week to each.”
