David McNarry wants ministers to stop speaking in Irish
An Ulster Unionist assembly member has said he is tired of listening to Stormont ministers speaking in Irish.

David McNarry has tabled a motion for debate seeking to have the practice stopped.

Mr McNarry said there was plenty of recognition already for the language and is also opposing proposed legislation for an Irish Language Act.

Caral Ni Chuillin said Sinn Fein would vigorously oppose the motion which she described as "unacceptable".
