Speaker’s Ruling Shows Stormont Operates Below Established Standards

Admin —  September 24, 2013

Statement by TUV Leader Jim Allister:

“The refusal of the Speaker to let me even raise a Point of Order on his ruling today and the failure to afford me any opportunity to answer the First Minister’s second phase of attack, which came yesterday when he allowed Mr Robinson to make a spurious Point of Order, but denied me the opportunity to answer, underscores how far the operation of Stormont falls below established standards.

“If such scurrilous allegations had been made in Westminster the affected member would have been permitted to make a personal statement. But not here, at least not for me.”
