Due to changes made to the official Northern Ireland Assembly website, the tool we used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Northern Ireland Assembly again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
