A Liberal Democrat takes charge

It is hardly the most significant fact about the very important devolution of justice and policing to Northern Ireland but it is worth noting that the new Justice Minister, David Ford is not just Leader of the Alliance Party.

David will be in charge of the department with more than 4,000 employees and a budget of nearly £1.5bn. He is the first Northern Ireland Justice minister since Westminster took policing powers away from the old Stormont government in 1972. He is also a longstanding member of the Liberal Democrats.
