“An Irish language strategy rather than an act..”

The BBC’s Martina Purdy has the latest rumours as the parties brief their MLAs. And remember, “Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”. From the BBC report

BBC Northern Ireland political correspondent Martina Purdy said consultation on a deal was likely. “Even if the DUP assembly team says yes to the deal, there will have to be a process of consultation, possibly through the executive,” she said. “It’s thought there are four aspects to the deal: devolving justice powers, the role of the justice minister, the Irish language and parading. “An Irish language strategy rather than an act is thought to be the compromise. It’s expected there will be references to shared future and difficulties around executive functioning.”
