#StormontTalks: The Assembly still stands

From the BBC

Prime Minister David Cameron said he was delighted a workable agreement had been reached.

Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan said it “sets out a plan for financial and welfare reform.”

First Minister Peter Robinson said he would be recommending the document to his party executive.

Ulster Unionist Party leader Mike Nesbitt said no party was able to give the agreed proposals 100% endorsement as “they all have their own processes”, but he said he would ask his own party to give the agreement “a fair wind”.

Alliance leader David Ford said he made it clear to the government that he would accept what was in the paper, but said it did not go far enough to meet the needs of Northern Ireland society.
