Post elections update

A little news from the Scottish and N Ireland devolved governments.

From Third Force News, an article with its “pick of the bunch” of Scotland’s newest MSPs with a charity or voluntary sector background.

The number of government departments in Northern Ireland has now been reduced from twelve to nine (as previously covered by VoluntaryNews). Looks like they’ve taken the opportunity to bring in a new design to the NI Executive website, too. No doubt some old departmental web links will need checking and updating.

This short Executive news item has links to the new departments, while an nidirect page gives more detail on what each one covers.

Update: NICVA also has a listing of MLAs and contact details collated so far.
