The Secretary of State and I regularly meet with Executive Ministers on a range of issues affecting the people of Northern Ireland. The Secretary of State has regular meetings with the First and deputy First Ministers, along with further Executive engagement via the New Decade, New Approach board.

As Minister of State, I frequently engage with Executive ministers. Recent engagement has focused on how the UK Government plans to mark the NI Centenary and the benefits for the people of Northern Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Office works closely with the NI Executive, and is committed to continuing to foster a productive working relationship that benefits all of Northern Ireland.
