Suggestion: Lagan Valley MLA Trevor Lunn

Trevor Lunn, the veteran MLA for Lagan Valley, recently urged the Irish Government to be more proactive in its discussion about a united Ireland.

He explained his suggestion: "Lay it out in some sort of document. Let people absorb it, give them time for reflection and a consideration of the issues. Doing it in advance would be a very useful exercise in the interests of certainty and to give a measure of reassurance about the matters that concern people."

He made it clear that he was not advocating a united Ireland, but rather "a process we need to get into".
