Sandra Overend: ...mentioned the difficulties experienced in south Tyrone. I apologise on behalf of Tom Elliott, who is unable to be here this afternoon.

Arlene Foster: ...attend Westminster have a full role to play in this matter. Our 14 MPs who attend Westminster have a very significant role to play in this issue.

Roy Beggs: I declare an interest in this subject, as I provided court evidence that resulted in an ASBO being awarded against an individual linked to 90 cars being abandoned in the Taylors Avenue area.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development: Road and Sewerage Works: Armagh (19 May 2015)

Danny Kennedy: I thank the Member for his question. I can confirm that, as a Member for Newry and Armagh, I have had meetings and discussions with concerned business operators in that area. I understand their concerns and am very sympathetic to them. A rate reduction would be a matter for DFP and would require the appeal procedure to be used. It is my experience that, sometimes, it is a mistake to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Psychoactive Substances (18 May 2015)

Simon Hamilton: ...Mephedrone. I move now to tackling supply. As many highlighted today, the key legislation, the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act, is a reserved matter and is led by the UK Government at Westminster.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Abortion: Guidelines/Legislation (18 May 2015)

David Ford: Yes. The answer is simple: I gave a commitment that there would be a paper to the Executive from the Department of Justice on the issue, recommending that, in this narrow area, abortions be allowed in circumstances of fatal foetal abnormality. That is the commitment that I gave, and that is what I have instructed officials to do. I trust that we will have a paper prepared in the very near...
