Northern Ireland (Flags) — 16 May 2000

I beg to move,

That the draft Flags (Northern Ireland) Order 2000, which was laid before this House on 15th May, be approved.

the present wish of a majority of the people of Northern Ireland . . . is to maintain the Union and accordingly, that Northern Ireland's status as part of the United Kingdom reflects and relies upon that wish . . .

just and equal treatment for the identity, ethos, and aspirations of both.

We considered the removal of symbols but this could be misinterpreted as inconsistent with Northern Ireland's constitutional position.

The Secretary of State may make regulations regulating the flying of flags at government buidings.

The Assembly shall, within such period as the Secretary of State may specify, report to the Secretary of State the views expressed in the Assembly.

In exercising his powers under Article 3 the Secretary of State shall have regard to the Belfast Agreement.

Question put: --

The House divided: Ayes 240, Noes 8.
