The Prime Ministers press Office said:

“In a deal agreed last week, which secured the full restoration of the institutions of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement, the parties in Northern Ireland committed to delivering a range of reforms including immediate resolution of the industrial strike action among health workers.”

Ahead of his visit today, the Prime Minister called the new Assembly an ‘historic time for the people of Northern Ireland’.

“After three years, Stormont is open for business again with an Executive who can now move forward with improving people’s lives and delivering for all communities in Northern Ireland.

“I look forward to meeting with the new Executive and hearing about their plans for the future – including driving forward much needed reforms to public services and resolving the current health strike.

“The next decade will be an incredible time of opportunity for Northern Ireland and the whole of the United Kingdom as we come together to unleash the potential of our four nations.”
