Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Block Grant (14 April 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

Maeve McLaughlin: I thank the Member for his intervention. Again, I go back to the point about the protection of the most vulnerable. Members from other Benches have noted the issue around the lack of clarity regarding the money that is raised here and, indeed, the gap of the alleged 10 billion from Westminster. Let us look at it in terms of the consensus that is coming from the House. Often, we do...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Carrier Bag Levy: NIEA Grants (14 April 2015)

Stewart Dickson: T3. Mr Dickson asked the Minister of the Environment whether he can guarantee that the recently announced 1 million from the carrier bag levy/tax fund will go to current NIEA grant-funded organisations and that, given the fact that many of those organisations are under great stress, those applications will not be lengthy or torturous. (AQT 2353/11-15)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Wind Turbines: Planning Approval (14 April 2015)

Mark Durkan: I thank the Member for the question and the supplementary.

While the Department will retain overarching planning policy responsibility, including the responsibility for planning policy...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Block Grant: Cuts (13 April 2015)

Martin McGuinness: I think that every Member knows that the British Government are effectively crucifying the Executive as a result of the swingeing cuts to our block grant. Over 15 billion has been stripped away by a Westminster Government led by the Tories, who have no mandate here whatsoever. Despite their decision to parachute candidates into a number of constituencies, with the exception, of...

Lord Bates: I thank the noble Baroness for that unexpected remark—I was slightly thrown by it—and, of course, I am very happy to reciprocate. There has been common ground in many of the areas that we have debated over the past six months while I have been in this role. On issues such as child sexual exploitation, counterterrorism legislation and modern day slavery, we have, in the best...

Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 March 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Frank Doran: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Mr Lansley). We served together on the House of Commons Commission for a number of years and learned a lot about each other. I was first elected in 1987. I have to say it was an accident, because I did not expect to win. I took a Conservative seat that had only ever once been won by my party, when Donald Dewar won it...

Finance (No. 2) Bill — Second Reading (and Remaining Stages) (26 March 2015)

Lord Newby: My Lords, I beg to move that the Bill now be read a second time. As noble Lords are aware, when this Government took office in 2010, they faced the worst economic crisis in recent history. Since then, this Government have taken decisive action to deal with the debts we inherited and get the economy moving again. Today we are seeing the fruits of those actions, with the fastest rate of growth...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Basic Maths and English Skills (26 March 2015)

Nicholas Boles: Unlike the previous Government—and no doubt the Government that Labour would form were they to get into office again—we follow the evidence, and the evidence is clear. We published a report in December that looked at the destination data of young people taking different kinds of further education course and apprenticeships. A level 2 apprenticeship provides an 11% increase in...
