    I'm iffy on all-women shortlists, but would this ban pairing (where one constituency needing a new constituency picks a man and is paired with a similarly-winnable one that picks a woman) as is used for the Welsh Assembly and which I definitely support?

    I think it is a bit silly when there are rules where firms have to employ an exactly equal number of men and women. People should be employed based on how qualified they are, not on whether they are male or female.

    No because this only affects NI.

    The formatting is not upto par, it only applies to NI and it's repealing a bit of legislation that overrides an act i'm not sure we need.
