Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Emma Little Pengelly: I absolutely agree with my right hon. Friend. The reality is that the Democratic Unionist party is a party of devolution. We want to get the Assembly restored.

I would say to the Minister and to the Secretary of State that...
