Delegated responsibilities for Home Affairs Members 23 February 2007

HOME Affairs Minister Martyn Quayle has announced the responsibilities he is delegating to Departmental Members.

Tim Crookall MHK is to take on responsibility for the strategic direction of both the penal review and the ongoing work which aims to dovetail the offender management operations of the Prison and Probation services. Additionally, Mr Crookall will look at Youth Justice from the Home Affairs’ perspective, specifically the delivery of the Young Person Strategy where it impacts on the DHA. He will also act as liaison with the prison’s Board of Visitors and the Parole Committee.

George Waft MLC has delegated responsibility for the Fire and Rescue Service, the Communications Division and the Emergency Planning Unit. He also takes over responsibility for delivery of the new prison and chairs the Police Advisory Group and the Department’s Scrutiny Committee.

Mr Quayle said:

‘I am delighted to be able to share the Departmental duties with the two political Members, with the intended aim to give both Mr Crookall and Mr Waft meaningful portfolios that they can get their teeth into.
'As well as the wide remit of delegated responsibilities, I will be asking both Members to assist in the planning, structuring and progression of the various important pieces of legislation through the respective parliamentary branches, in order that the Department achieves the demanding legislative programme it has been set.’

Mr Quayle retains direct control of the DHA Chief Executive’s Office, business planning, finance, the legislative programme, social policy, and law and order including policing policy.
