I will answer today’s questions on behalf of the First Minister and as Deputy First Minister, with Mr Trimble’s prior agreement.

A paper setting out a framework for the development for Northern Ireland of a co-ordinated, cohesive and strategic approach to the European Union is being finalised with Departments. It is anticipated that the paper will be considered by the Executive early in the new year, prior to discussion with the Committee of the Centre.
