Members present for all or part of the proceedings:

Mr Jimmy Spratt (Chairperson)
Mr Raymond McCartney (Deputy Chairperson)
Mr Danny Kennedy
Mr Alan McFarland
Mr John O’Dowd
The Chairperson (Mr Spratt):

We now move to devolution of policing and justice matters, and the category 2 list of issues. As has been the case in recent weeks, I intend to ask members whether there has been any movement on those matters. I have not received any such indication.

Before proceeding, I declare an interest as a member of the Northern Ireland Policing Board. No other Committee members who need to declare an interest are at the table. Only two parties are represented at the table at the moment. I have received no indication from the other two parties that there has been any change in their position. I ask members to clarify whether there has been any movement.

Mr McCartney:

We have no change to report.

Mr McFarland:

We have nothing to report.
