4.1  Northern Ireland Assembly (Elections and Periods of Suspension) Bill went very quickly through all its stages in both Houses, and has now received the Royal Assent. We were unable to report on it during its passage through Parliament, but we can now report our view that it does not give rise to any significant risk of an incompatibility with Convention rights.
