Baroness Nuala O’Loan has called for the Secretary of State to recall the Northern Ireland Assembly before Monday 21 October. In response DUP Leader Arlene Foster MLA said,
“We would support this call. Our Assembly team met on Monday and agreed to seek a recall of the Assembly.
Our MLAs will return to the Chamber without pre-condition. There are serious matters emanating from the NI (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 which should be decisions made in Stormont.
We urge other MLAs who oppose the extreme liberalisation of our abortion law, to step outside any Party shackles and join us in recalling the Assembly.
It's time to get Northern Ireland moving again.”
