Membership of the Social Development Committee 1999-2002

The Social Development Committee was established to advise and assist the Minister of Social Development.

It operated during those periods from November 1999 until October 2002 when devolved power in Northern Ireland was fully operational. The two most senior figures on the Committee were the chair and deputy chair.
