The Assembly met at 11:00 am (Speaker [Mr Maskey] in the Chair). Members observed two minutes' silence.
Members, having been given notice by not less than 30 Members, I have summoned the Assembly to meet today for the purpose of debating a motion on the impact of COVID-19 on school opening.
Item 3 on the Order Paper is the Adjournment. A happy new year to all Members and to all our staff. Thank you very much. Adjourned at 1.05 pm.
The current Northern Ireland Assembly was established in 1998 as part of the Belfast Agreement. It was suspended on the 14th of October 2002, and remained suspended until 8th May 2007.
Between 8 May 2006 and 22 November 2006 the Assembly established under the Northern Ireland Act 2006, and between November 2006 and January 2007 the Transitional Assembly created by the Northern Ireland (St Andrews Agreement) Act 2006, met in order to prepare for the restoration of devolved government.
