The funding and delivery of public services in Northern Ireland

Inquiry

The Northern Ireland Affairs Committee is launching an inquiry into the funding of public services in Northern Ireland.

The inquiry will look at the financial situation facing Northern Ireland’s public services, including health, education and the police, and how the lack of a functioning Executive has impacted on budgetary management. The Committee will also take the opportunity to explore the effectiveness of the Barnett formula and examine the viability of other options for increasing revenue to put Northern Ireland’s finances on a more sustainable footing.
