The statement follows the request made by Sir Jeffrey Donaldson to recall the NI Assembly and work with the other parties.
The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Chris Heaton-Harris MP has welcomed the request made by Democratic Unionist Party leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson to work with the other Northern Ireland Parties to recall the Northern Ireland Assembly.
The move followed the Government’s introduction of legislation to affirm Northern Ireland’s place in the Union and to guarantee unfettered access for Northern Ireland goods to the whole of the United Kingdom internal market.
Northern Ireland Secretary, Chris Heaton-Harris said:
“I am delighted that the Democratic Unionist Party have taken this next step to work with the other Northern Ireland Parties to recall the Assembly.
“The Government made commitments to introduce legislation in our Command Paper and we have now followed through on those commitments.
“I look forward to working with the new First Minister, deputy First Minister, and all the Ministers in a returned Northern Ireland Executive, alongside Northern Ireland Assembly members, to improve the lives of people living here.”
