'Report on Statutory Committee Activity on European Issues (NIA 48/10/11R)' provides an overview of statutory committees' engagement in Europe and consideration of European policy and legislation. This Report highlights the work of the Committee for the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister in Europe and provides an update on a number of the actions and recommendations contained in the document.
On 26 January 2010 the Northern Ireland Assembly approved the Report of the Committee for the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister on its inquiry into the consideration of European issues and called for enhanced engagement and improved interaction with the European institutions to raise the profile of Europe in Northern Ireland.
Over the past year the Committee has considered a number of European issues, including:
funding drawn down by Northern Ireland from the Seventh Framework Programme in relation to research and development;
the work of the Special European Union Programmes Body and particularly funding from INTERREG IVa and Peace III; and
forwarding the European Commission's Communication on the Rights of the Child to all statutory committees for their information.
The Committee brought forward a total of 12 Actions for the Assembly's statutory committees and 17 Recommendations for the Speaker, the Assembly Commission and the First Minister and deputy First Minister.
The Committee agreed to write to all statutory committees at its meeting of 17 November 2010 to request information on their engagement on European issues.
