The BBC are reporting that Sir Reg Empey will nominate three UUP MLAs to sit on the Policing Board and not two as Peter Hain asked him to nominate. This is clearly an indication that he views the results of the 2003 Assembly Election as the legitimate point from which to run d’Hondt, and not the DUP’s high water mark as is being reported to be the case.
