Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: University of Ulster:  Magee Expansion (16 September 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Stephen Farry: ...a quality higher education system and, indeed, build further upon that.  I do not want to see lower tuition fees being matched with an inferior form of higher education — that is not something in the interests of our young people or the economy, and I am sure that Members would share that concern. It is important to set out this context before looking at the specific ambition to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Altnagelvin Hospital (16 September 2014) See 8 other results from this debate

Colum Eastwood: ...of the staff dealing with cardiac issues.  I think that we should all resist the urge, on the radio or in the Chamber, to make announcements about things that have a real impact on people's lives without the issues having been worked forward.  There is a major job of work to be done to try to get over some of the issues, not least welfare reform.  However, outside welfare...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Schedule 2 (Amendments) (16 September 2014)

Alban Maginness: I just want to agree with the Chair of the Committee.  I think he was slightly ungracious towards the Minister.  I am sure that, on foot of the comments made by the Examiner of Statutory Rules, the Minister would have taken his own initiative and introduced the amendments.  The amendments are to be welcomed.  They mean that the Assembly has a further input into the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Welfare Reform: Education Budget (16 September 2014)

Lord Morrow: I heard what the Minister has said.  He gave a fair long answer, but I am not sure that he gave the answer that I would like to have heard.  However, we will try it another way.  Is the Minister telling the House that there will be no cuts as a result of the impact of the position that his party has taken on benefit cuts?  Is he telling us that there will be no cuts, that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Educational Psychologists (16 September 2014)

John O'Dowd: ...the Education Committee to its preparation, and I intend to continue to work with the Committee on that, because I am of the firm view that no one wants to have a political spat over the Bill.  We want to make sure that the Bill is right and that it protects and enhances the educational needs of our young people.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Stadia: Community Integration and Benefits (16 September 2014)

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...on a different complexion.  We need to have more engagement with other Departments and, indeed, with partners and partnerships around apprenticeships and the monitoring of those apprenticeships, to make sure that whatever commitment is made is honoured and to make sure that there are training places.  Liaisons and discussions need to be ongoing with schools and the construction...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Ardoyne Fleadh: DCAL Funding (16 September 2014)

Carál Ní Chuilín: I thank the Member for that question.  I am sure that he heard the answer that I gave to Mr William Humphrey.  I will indeed.  I want to take the opportunity to say again that I, too, was very disappointed and saddened by the remarks that the Druids made at the Ardoyne Fleadh.  I was very content with the rebuttals in statements from the organisers and, indeed, from all...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Brantry Lough:  Fish Kill (16 September 2014)

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...suggest that the temperature and the possibility of toxic algae in the Brantry added to the high level of fish mortality.  I will try to bring the Member's question to my officials and get answers.  I am sure that the Member will join me in saying that we need to do anything that we can to reduce the impact on angling in our public waters.  I would be happy to receive any...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: City of Culture: Legacy (16 September 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...what I intend to bid for in the next monitoring rounds.  I think that that is important, given that everybody is committed to ensuring that the legacy of the City of Culture is met but also to make sure that people have their facts right.  I am not saying that there has been mischief, but some confusion has certainly been spun, either by certain media outlets or people on the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Commonwealth Games 2014 (16 September 2014)

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...of all our athletes at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.  Overall, we finished fifteenth out of 71 on the medals table, with over 6,500 competing athletes to win 12 medals at the games.  I am sure that the Member will agree that that is a remarkable achievement.  I hosted a reception here yesterday evening to celebrate the team's remarkable achievements.  In...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Pipe Bands (16 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Sydney Anderson: ...record my congratulations as well.  Will she now join me in congratulating the Bleary and District Pipe Band from my Upper Bann constituency, which recently won the grade 2 championships at Portrush? I am sure that the Minister will agree that pipe bands are expensive to keep and to develop.  There are a lot of young people in those bands, and I have been involved with some of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Electricity Generating Capacity (16 September 2014)

Simon Hamilton: ...would be cautious about doing so either on my behalf or on behalf of the Enterprise, Trade and Investment   Minister.  I will therefore refrain from passing particular comment on that.  I am not sure what the status of that proposal is or whether the proposer has applied for public money.  However, I am sure that officials will have heard the Member raise the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Underemployment:  TUC report (16 September 2014)

Simon Hamilton: ....  However, we must not forget that there are many people who, whilst they are in work, are defined as underemployed because of the hours that they are doing or the type of job that they are performing.  I am sure that what will come back from the Department is that much of what we are doing in trying to attract investment into Northern Ireland and to grow indigenous firms is all...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Down District: Employment (16 September 2014)

Caitriona Ruane: Go raibh maith agat, a Phríomh-LeasCheann Comhairle.  As the Minister will know, and as I am sure his Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment will know, in recent years, the Down district has been blighted by a continual erosion of public sector jobs.  Will the Minister outline what he and the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment plan to do about public sector...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Ulster Grand Prix (16 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Simon Hamilton: ...Northern Ireland, and generated nearly £1 million for the local economy.  You would absolutely want to support something that is as successful and as ingrained in the culture of Northern Ireland as that.  I am sure that, as with all such events, the Minister will want to appraise this year's results.  Subject to a business case and, of course, the availability of funds,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Trade and Investment (16 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Simon Hamilton: I am not sure of the origin or status of the document that the Member is talking about.  Perhaps he could furnish the Department with some details.  If we are being portrayed on a global stage as having only one skill — whereas, as the Member rightly says, we have many more than that — then I am sure that the Department would be keen to try to correct that and make sure...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Air Routes (16 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Simon Hamilton: ...destinations in his question, and I do not disagree with the likes of Berlin; in fact, Germany as a whole is a priority for the Department, whether it be Berlin, Frankfurt or other destinations.  I am sure that the Member is aware of efforts to get a route to Istanbul because of the strategic significance of its location. I agree in some respects with the Member, but I do not entirely...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Paschal Donohoe TD (16 September 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Simon Hamilton: As I said in my original response, the Minister has not had a chance to meet face to face the new Tourism Minister in the Irish Republic.  I am sure that she will take the opportunity as soon as she can, and I am sure that she will want to discuss a range of issues around the subject of tourism.  Without wishing to speak for the Minister or to pre-empt what she would discuss, I am...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Performing Arts and Technology Innovation Centre:  SERC (16 September 2014)

Stephen Farry: ...will depend on resource funding coming through my Department.  Obviously, that will be under increased pressure over the coming years.  That said, this is the new investment and we want to make sure that it is a success. We encourage the college to make as much public use of the facility as it can and, in doing so, the facility can become a theatre and a performing arts space for...
