Another busy day

It was an early start with interviews on Good Morning Ulster and the Nolan Show and then straight into departmental business.

This morning I met a delegation from the Amalgamation of Official Northern Ireland Supporters Clubs to hear their views on a range of football issues.  The delegation included Gary McAllister, Jonathan McAlpin and David Moorhead.  We discussed the proposed redevelopment of Windsor Park, which is the national football stadium, as well as the interim work to be carried out in the early summer, and it was very useful to hear the views of those who are faithful supporters of the Northern Ireland team.  The other issue we discussed was the forthcoming public order legislation at sports grounds.  The NIO put their draft proposals out to consultation in July 2009 and they are now considering the responses.

I also prepared for my Oral Questions session next week, took part in some talks with other political parties and attended a celebration event for the Neighbourhood Watch schemes that operate in Belfast.  The event was organised by the District Policing Partnership and the Community Safety Partnership.
