Having expressed concern yesterday [see end of clip] that Stormont Live might fall foul of the Trade Descriptions Act, no wonder Jim Fitzpatrick and Mark Devenport played the introduction of UUP MLA David McNarry’s private member’s bill twice. It’s his second [scroll down] and the Community Use of School Premises Bill passed its first stage today. On the show he makes the case that other MLAs, and Assembly Committees, should follow suit. The discussion does throw up a great line from Mark Devenport [3min 37sec in].
“This makes the McNarry kitchen table the main legislative factory here for Northern Ireland..”
