Westminster and Northern Ireland…

THE DUP have been keen to have meetings held of Westminster’s Northern Ireland Grand Committee meet in Northern Ireland, and could perhaps get their way if the SDLP are not opposed to the move. If plans to allow Orders in Council to be amended (rather than just be passed or dumped) succeed, would this mean primary legislation for NI actually being debated meaningfullyl in NI? If amendments to laws were permitted, surely the local parties (aside from Sinn Fein MPs, who don’t attend) would find their influence on laws passed in Parliament increased on home turf?
