Alliance is calling on smaller parties on Belfast City Council to boycott a powerful new committee which it claims will censor them, stifle democracy, and benefit Sinn Fein and the DUP.

The decision to set up the Business and Standards Committee, taken at a full council meeting last week, is opposed by Alliance, the SDLP, Greens and People Before Profit.
