Indeed I have paid tribute to them on the floor of this House so it is a matter of record. The Secretary of State holds meetings to hear views and advice from interested peers and those with experience in NI issues, and will continue to do so. Due to the large volume of engagements that the Secretary of State is obliged to undertake, I, as per my ministerial role, lead on the day to day engagement with peers and therefore regularly meet this group of peers.</p><p> </p> more like this
