Still waiting.. – Redux

The absence of an update on the Northern Ireland Executive’s meeting yesterday was, indeed, evidence of the absence of a decision on retrospectively authorising the Social Development minister to cut the UDA-linked funding for the CTI scheme – that legal case looms and those disputed minutes remain. And, according to the Belfast Telegraph’s sources, a last minute paper from the DUP ministers seems to have been responsible.

DUP Ministers produced a paper at yesterday’s Executive meeting, the second time it has been debated in a week, described by one source as a “commentary”.

But other Ministers asked for more time to absorb the details of the paper, which it was said was only available an hour before yesterday’s meeting.
