This is an important element of the understandings by which devolution operates across the UK, and we would be reluctant to depart from it in anything other than exceptional circumstances. more like this

star this property answer text Northern Ireland Office policy continues to be decided by Ministers. The NIO’s Senior Management Board monitors the delivery of all NIO policy, ensures lines of responsibility and accountability are clear, and checks that safeguards against error are sufficiently robust. As a result of significant changes in responsibilities and priorities, the Northern Ireland Office is a very different department from that which existed prior to devolution. The Department will be reflecting carefully on the conclusions and recommendations of the Hallett report, and considering whether there are further steps that need to be taken within the NIO to strengthen existing processes and ensure that appropriate lessons are learned. This work will be led by the Permanent Secretary and the Senior Management Board. more like this
