Northern Ireland Assembly Votes In Favour Of Referendum On Lisbon

Excellent spot and full credit to Fausty

The Northern Ireland assembly has debated and voted on a motion urging whoever wins the next UK General Election hold a referendum on the UK's ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, and the motion was approved 47-19.

An extract
"those parties aspiring to form the incoming Government of the United Kingdom to give an unequivocal commitment to hold, within a twelve month period from assuming office in 2010, a binding referendum on the Lisbon Treaty that is unconditional and unrelated to how other member states choose to vote, and the result of which will not be held in abeyance pending a further referendum on the subject."
Excellent news.

I wonder if there are any plans for a similar debate in the Welsh Assembly or the Scottish Parliament?
