Preparation for Government Committee now a precondition?

Following yesterday’s failure to agree who should chair Hain’s Committee, as noted here, and the initial reaction by the Secretary of State for Wales and Northern Ireland, “The parties must urgently resolve this issue.”, Peter Hain has issued another statement, and what looks suspiciously like another deadline,”I want the parties to reflect carefully on this over the weekend and I have asked my officials to make contact with them to see where we can establish common ground. We will need to be clear where we are going by Monday.” Press Asociation report here.
