The Issues

Reform of Government - I welcome the Review of Public Administration, with its aim of reducing bureaucracy and providing greater efficiency in services. In particular, I have been involved in the Local Government reform process, and believe that the out workings of this should mean greater powers being exercised at local level, increased local accountability, and efficient and imaginative new ways of providing service delivery to the public. I believe that as a result of the Belfast Agreement there are too many Government departments and MLAs, and believe that these must be reformed over time, together with our system of government.
