Stormont this week

The MLAs will be back at their work tomorrow morning with enough to maintain the interest of political animals. The Speaker is expected to rule on the Ervine move, with the possibility of that particular battle moving to the courts. The establishment of a committee to examine the barriers to a full restoration of devolution seems likley. Ulster devolution will be placed in the context of wider reforms to the British constitution with Jack McConnell speaking to the Assembly about the benefits of devolution. This despite the present devolutionary runes not looking good for the Labour Party in Scotland or Jack McConnell in particular.
