Unionists attend British Irish Parliamentary Body

Unionism has been represented for the first time at a meeting of a British-Irish body formed almost 20 years ago. Ulster Unionist members Lord Maginnis and David McClarty, alongside DUP MLA Jim Wells attended an historic gathering of the British-Irish Inter-Parliamentary body in Newcastle on Monday. In order to address unionist concerns, the body will now be rebranded as the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly.

We understand Lord Maginess was in attendance after a slight detour via Newcastle, Co. Down.
