TENTH ANNUAL REPORT

THE WORK OF THE BRITISH-IRISH INTER-PARLIAMENTARY BODY

Introduction

Membership of the Body

  

    2.  The General Election in the United Kingdom in May resulted in a number of changes to the British delegation, the most significant of which was the replacement of Mr David Winnick, MP as Co-Chair by Mr Paul Murphy, MP. Mr Winnick had announced at the Bundoran Plenary session that he would leave the Body, although he was not standing down from the House of Commons. Lord Dubs replaced Mr Kevin McNamara (who left the House of Commons) on the Steering Committee. Mr John Hume of the SDLP also retired from the Commons at the General Election and his presence is much missed. Other notable departures were those of Mr Harry Barnes and Mr William O'Brien. The other changes to the British Delegation can be found in Appendix 1. Hon Tony Brown MHK succeeded Mr Donald Gelling, who has again become Chief Minister of the Isle of Man. The Body expressed its congratulations to Mr Gelling.
