John O'Dowd: ...to the Member quite recently stating that the pillars of society, government and state are open to challenge, as are Churches and Church leaders.

Simon Hamilton: The Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a trade agreement that is currently being negotiated between the European Union and the United States of America.  The negotiations do not constitute a devolved Government matter.  It is the responsibility of the Westminster Government to work with the European Commission and other member states to develop a comprehensive...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Youth Unemployment (16 September 2014)

Stephen Farry: We are very happy to have ongoing discussions with the European Union, and, obviously, the MEPs are a very useful conduit in that regard.  Already, we have access to the European social fund.  That is set to be a bigger pot for Northern Ireland over the next seven years than has been the case previously, so that will create a lot of opportunities for us.  The Member may also...

Fra McCann: Go raibh maith agat, a Phríomh-LeasCheann Comhairle.  I thank the Minister for his answer.  Can he advise the House whether he is approaching the forthcoming meeting with the National Union of Students - Union of Students in Ireland (NUS-USI) with an open mind to reconsider his decision to transfer money away from the hardship fund?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Criminal Justice Matters:  Intergovernmental Agreement on Cooperation (16 September 2014)

David Ford: ...the European arrest warrant is one of those that was discussed as part of our general summing-up of cooperation.  I have concerns that we have not yet seen full clarity between the UK and the European Union on the opt-back-in measure for the European arrest warrant, which no doubt is more significant for Northern Ireland than it is for other regions of the UK and is particularly...

Stephen Moutray: ...the Mourneview estate in Lurgan.  I remember him speaking from a platform, which comprised an open-top lorry, to a crowd of maybe some 500 people.  Ian Paisley had a charisma that was lacking in unionism at that time.  He appealed to all sections of the unionist community, but particularly to the working-class people, whom he represented so well.  My family background...

David Lidington: ...any way unique to the United Kingdom. When I attended a meeting of European Foreign Affairs Ministers two weekends ago, this was a theme coming from Ministers representing many Governments within the European Union. This is a challenge that almost every European country faces. The question of attendance at the Paris meeting is, for self-evident reasons, primarily a matter for the French...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers (12 September 2014)

Dan Rogerson: It is for the European Commission, in its role as guardian of the Treaties, to oversee the application of European Union law and institute infraction proceedings where it considers such action appropriate.

Recital 14 provides:...

Bill Presented — Recall of MPs Bill: Gurkha Pensions (11 September 2014)

Alison Seabeck: ...Member for Aldershot (Sir Gerald Howarth); they were entirely justified. Members will understand why so many colleagues have been absent from today’s debate, but the defence of the United Kingdom and the Union is a paramount concern. Scotland plays an important role in the overall defence of our realm. A yes vote, which would leave the Scots unable to respond to incidents, without...

Many of our colleagues are in Scotland trying to save the Union, and I pay tribute to them for doing so. The debate has included one contribution from an east midlands Member and three contributions from north-east Members. I shall try to balance that by giving...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 35 - General functions of Commissioner (11 September 2014)

Karen Bradley: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments. I am not sure whether I am pleased to see him here fighting modern slavery or whether he should be saving the Union elsewhere, but I am always delighted to see him. I will come on to those points. He made points on Tuesday and we will discuss the matter further, but I feel that being prescriptive today, in a way that we do not need to, will just...

Angela Eagle: ...Benches might seem just a little more sparsely populated than usual, but I assure you, Mr Speaker, that our Members’ absence is in a good cause. They are all in Scotland campaigning to save the Union. I will be joining them later today and I know that the Leader of the House is also bound for Scotland. Does he therefore agree that we can only build a better, fairer and more just...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Regulation on Business (11 September 2014)

David Nuttall: Given that many of the regulations that affect business emanate from the European Union, will the Minister meet the new EU commissioner for the internal market, industry, entrepreneurship and SMEs, Elzbieta Bienkowska, in the near future to urge her to introduce and adopt the UK Government’s one-in, two-out rule?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: UK Competitiveness (11 September 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Dennis Skinner: .... I have got a plan, and he knows about it. The Government should apply for state aid and get £70 million, which is only a tiny proportion of the £700 million that this Government took from the National Union of Mineworkers pension fund in February. That is all we need in order for those three pits—Hatfield, Thoresby and Kellingley—to be able to exhaust their...
