To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list those matters on which he will answer questions following the resumption of devolved government; and if he will make a statement.
Peter Hain (Secretary of State, Northern Ireland Office; Neath, Labour)
I will answer questions on those matters for which I retain responsibility following the restoration of devolution in Northern Ireland—primarily for policing, security policy, prisons, criminal justice, constitutional matters and the operation of the Northern Ireland devolution settlement.
