Kennedy sends mixed message over priorities

On Monday, the Assembly debated a Green Party motion on equal marriage and received criticism from Ulster Unionist minister Danny Kennedy, who claimed debating this was a waste of time in the current economic climate.

He said: "When people are worried about bills, their job security, fuel prices and shopping budgets, why are we setting aside time to debate same-sex marriage?"

On the same day, he put his name down in support of a motion to debate the Union flag not being flown from Parliament Buildings on Ulster Day.
