Something to think about: Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond holds the agreement between the UK Government and the Scottish Government to hold a referendum on independence for Scotland

Scottish referendum: Alex Salmond failed to break up our family of nations 

Last week's column was the last one written while I was Minister for Social Development. Today I have my first meeting as the new chair of the Culture, Arts and Leisure Committee. Naturally I have reflected on what I have achieved over the past three years in DSD and I will return to that next week. It has been a privilege to serve in the Northern Ireland Executive over the past five years, in DCAL and then DSD, and a privilege for which I am very grateful.
