This chapter provides a review of the devolution in the UK that began in Social Policy Review 16, with an examination of the brief period of devolution in Northern Ireland, sometime between 1999 and 2004. The discussion is placed in the context of a longer history of devolved government under Ulster Unionist control since the partition of Ireland in 1922. The author is able to identify several distinctive features of Northern Ireland's welfare system that involve a ‘small government’.

Keywords:   devolution, Northern Ireland, devolved government, Ulster Unionist control, welfare system, small government
