You would imagine that the staff who want to do so will transfer with their function, but the group that we have established will manage all of that and make sure, in conjunction with trade unions, that there is a seamless process for staff, because, obviously, they will still be providing a service. That is not going to change. It is just where they provide that service from...

George Robinson: ...Hospital will play a vital role for dozens of tourists and visitors to our beautiful north coast as well as our student population.

Despite scaremongering from some quarters, I have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Westminster Elections (20 April 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Jo-Anne Dobson: I am a confirmed and unashamed unionist. It is my firm opinion that, whether we face a hung Parliament or a massive majority for Conservative or Labour, every Member elected from Northern Ireland should, as the motion states, seek at all times: "to play their ... part in achieving the best possible outcomes for Northern Ireland". When the last Labour Government left power, Liam Byrne left a...

Arlene Foster: ...been made. Bombardier is completely committed to Northern Ireland because of the workforce that there is here, and to suggest that it would act otherwise following a referendum on the European Union when the company has made it clear that it does not have a particular stance on the UK referendum, if, indeed, it happens after the general election, is irresponsible.
