Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Arts and Leisure: Windsor Park (28 April 2015)

Carál Ní Chuilín: Well, 2016 starts on 1 January 2016, so I assume that the Member is asking whether the west stand will be completed in line with the overall project. It is my anticipation that that will be the case and that, if there is any delay in the overall timeline, it will be very small. I think that everybody in the House accepts that the IFA and soccer fans in particular were put in a terrible...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Voluntary and Community Sector: Cuts (27 April 2015)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Member for her supplementary. One element of the considerable work done by my officials was to ensure that we cross-referenced between the offices in the Department, from the north-west office right through to the Belfast offices, to ensure that we were not in any way treating any group or organisation differently because of its geographical position. It is not often that we get...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Welfare Reform: Sinn Féin Meetings (27 April 2015)

Mike Nesbitt: 1. Mr Nesbitt asked the Minister for Social Development on what dates, since 23 December 2014, did he or his officials meet with representatives of Sinn Féin to discuss welfare reform or any associated element relating to the Stormont House Agreement. (AQO 8018/11-15)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Racial Equality Strategy (27 April 2015)

Jonathan Bell: First, I offer a sincere word of thanks to Anna Lo. She has been of tremendous assistance to us in the office and has met us regularly. She has real credibility and can help us understand the voice of many in the minority ethnic development sector. I want to record my thanks for all her assistance. The direct answer to the question is that the invitation for new applications opened on 27...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Social Security Benefits Up-rating Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 (27 April 2015)

Mervyn Storey: I beg to move That the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 be approved. The uprating order is an annual order that sets out the rates of contributory and non-contributory benefits, together with the various allowances and premiums, that make up income-related benefits. Generally, the annual amounts from April each year are based on the increases in the general...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Causeway Hospital (21 April 2015)

Claire Sugden: Like other Members who have contributed so far, I thank my constituency colleague Mr Dallat for tabling the Adjournment debate. Whether it is unfounded or not, there remains significant concern about the future of Causeway Hospital in its entirety or in the services it provides. I also welcome the positive contributions by Members in the House thus far, particularly by the Minister's party...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Water Rates (21 April 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Jonathan Bell: This has been a very healthy debate on a matter that is of very real importance to householders out there. What all of us in the House want to do is to make sure that money is retained in families as far as possible. Nobody should underestimate the pressures that are on many family budgets at this time. It was right to table the motion on water rates and to let people know the position,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development: Car Parks (21 April 2015)

Danny Kennedy: My Department was not given any specific funding by the Department of Finance and Personnel to resurface or upgrade car parks in advance of their transfer to the new councils, and that remains the case. From a condition and structural integrity point of view, the car parks that transferred were deemed fit for purpose. They were inspected regularly and were in daily use up to the point of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Courts: Closures (21 April 2015)

David Ford: Prior to consulting on the closure of courthouses, the Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service reviewed all areas of expenditure to minimise the impact of budget reductions on front-line delivery. As a result, cuts totalling £2·6 million were delivered in 2014-15 and further cuts totalling £1·8 million have been identified for implementation in 2015-16. Those cuts,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Water Rates (21 April 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

John McCallister: Motions like this are inclined to remind me of Ian Paisley Junior's demands for £1 billion as the price for supporting a new Government or Sinn Féin's demands for maybe £1·5 billion for Northern Ireland. When I look at this motion, I know instinctively that it is fiscally reckless Ulster nationalism. I look at the United Kingdom in the midst of a general election and the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Sickness Absence in the Northern Ireland Public Sector (21 April 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

Daithí McKay: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. This has been a very useful debate on the Committee's report. I thank Members and the Minister for their contributions. As I indicated at the outset of the debate, the reality of life is that people do get sick and can need to take time off work at some stage in their working career. John McCallister made a couple of important points. One thing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Westminster Elections (20 April 2015)

Colum Eastwood: I beg to move That this Assembly notes the potential for a hung Parliament following the Westminster elections; further notes that the votes of Members of Parliament from Northern Ireland could be critical in relation to the formation of the next Westminster Government; and calls on all Members of Parliament returned from Northern Ireland to play their full part in achieving the best possible...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: GP Services: Kilkeel (20 April 2015)

Jim Wells: The Member for South Down's point is well made. Indeed, that is the reason why, 10 days ago, I announced an extra £15 million in funding for GP services, including £3·1 million in additional moneys for out-of-hours provision. The BMA and the Royal College of General Practitioners have been lobbying the Department and me on that. Indeed, on Thursday night, I was at a meeting...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Fuel Laundering (20 April 2015)

David Ford: I start by congratulating the junior Minister Mr Bell, who has now resumed his customary Front-Bench seat, on securing the Back-Bench debate on this important topic. I welcome the motion and the amendment before the House. The debate is very timely, as it coincides with the recent introduction of a new rebated fuel marker — the Dow marker — on 1 April. That was the culmination...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Health Service: Senior Staff Salaries (20 April 2015)

Jim Wells: We are looking at that, but I assure you that we will never reach the situation where anyone in Northern Ireland is paid anything like that amount of money. Some of our top staff are in charge of budgets of £600 million or £700 million — indeed, it is over £1 billion in the Belfast Trust — and in their delivery, the better and efficient management of their trusts...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance and Personnel: Subcontractors: Payments (20 April 2015)

Simon Hamilton: I thank the Member for his supplementary question. The measures that I and, more so, my predecessor have introduced in that regard have come as a result of concerns expressed to us by small businesses — contractors in supply chains, particularly in the construction sector. Measures have been introduced over the last number of years to deal with the issue, which has been highlighted, I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Fuel Laundering (20 April 2015)

Stewart Dickson: I also welcome the opportunity to speak on the important issue that we are dealing with today. I support the motion and the amendment. As others have said, fuel laundering has been a worrying, damaging and pervasive problem in Northern Ireland. Although it is primarily an excepted matter, HMRC and local authorities have been working to tackle the problem for many years. Many people see...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Enabling Success: Supporting the Transition from Economic Inactivity to Employment (20 April 2015)

Stephen Farry: With your permission, Mr Speaker, I wish to make a joint statement on a new strategy to address economic inactivity in Northern Ireland. The Executive's Programme for Government includes a commitment for my Department and the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment to develop and implement a strategy to reduce economic inactivity through skills, training, incentives and job creation....
