I have had an opportunity to scrutinise the entries in the Roll of Membership and am satisfied that 103 Members have taken their seats in accordance with Standing Orders.

Regarding designations of identity, eight Members entered designations that I have deemed to be “Other” for the purposes of Standing Orders. Members will find details of the designations in the Minutes of Proceedings for the sitting on 13 March.

As not all Members have yet signed the Roll of Membership, there will now be an opportunity for any Member present who has not yet done so to come forward to sign the Roll. I shall invite Members to come forward in alphabetical order by the name of their party

I invite Mr Edwin Poots of the Democratic Unionist Party to come forward to sign the Roll of Membership.

The following Member signed the Roll of Membership:

Poots, Edwin            Unionist

I thank Members for their co-operation and patience during the signing of the Roll of Membership. I am satisfied that the Members have signed the Roll and have confirmed their designations. Mr Edwin Poots, Mr Pat Doherty, Mr Barry McElduff and Mr Fra McCann have now taken their seats.

The Roll will be placed in the Chamber on sitting days to enable any other Member who has not yet signed the Roll to do so.
