Who said it..?

I intend to work with colleagues in the Northern Ireland Office in order to introduce legislative proposals to end the dual mandate of those councillors who are also Members of the Assembly and/or Parliament. In order to facilitate a smooth transition over a period of time, and in keeping with the desire that the review of public administration should result in savings, I will also work with colleagues in the Northern Ireland Office to introduce transitional legislative provisions to provide for any vacancies in local government that result from the ending of the dual mandate to be filled on the basis of co-option rather than by-election.It was the then Environment (now Enterprise) Minister, Arlene Foster, named today as the DUP candidate for the Fermanagh council by-election. A touch of ‘Do as I say, not as I do’…

Apologies if it’s been mentioned in any threads, particularly to poor Willowfield who now has yet another Arlene thread he can’t ignore. Spotted on the Sinn Fein website.
