I understand that the previous Secretary of State for Northern Ireland had a range of discussions with members of the Executive on a range of matters. The new Secretary of State for Northern Ireland looks forward to having regular talks with the Executive on a number of issues, including women and equalities issues.

The Minister of State for Northern Ireland, Robin Walker, has also had recent engagement with some Executive Ministers in Northern Ireland ahead of the introduction of the new abortion regulatory framework under section 9 of the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc.) Act 2019.
