I would like to deal with several of the points raised and, first of all, with the allegation made by Ms McWilliams that there is a stitch-up going on and with the similar allegation made by Mr Ervine. Mr Ervine himself made the point that the Committee on Standing Orders never agreed that committees would be constituted on the basis of two members for parties with more than 16 Members and one member for each party with fewer than 16 Members. Mr Ervine said that he was suspicious about that.
