Mull of Kintyre Review — Statement (13 Jul 2011)

Lord Bannside: My Lords, as the representative for North Antrim in another place at the time of this happening, this is a sad day. Yet it has some gladness about it, because the record of the two men concerned is now clear. That is a great relief to the families and to those of us who have followed this carefully. I, as the MP for that area, followed it very carefully and in fact raised it in another place....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Speaker’s Business: End of Mandate (23 Mar 2011)

Lord Ian Richard Kyle Bannside: It seems that some of us are finishing our course. It is 41 years since I walked in here as an elected Member for my constituency in Antrim. Now, I feel as if I look only 41, but that is not so, for the facts are against us. We are all moving away from youth to middle age. When we look at one another, we see that we have spread a bit in our middle age and are weakening in our old age....

Tunisia — Statement (17 Jan 2011)

Lord Bannside: My Lords, I am sure that we are glad of the Statement that we heard from the Minister tonight. However, I will stress one matter. Why did this come as a terrible surprise to the people in this area? Were the Government not aware that the matter was underneath the surface? We welcome the European part of the question. That must be worked on, because we need strong resistance to what has taken...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Dromore Primary School ( 7 Dec 2010)

Lord Ian Richard Kyle Bannside: Will the Minister do something now about the toilet facilities there? That is a very serious matter. If there are not proper toilet facilities, dear knows what could spread among the people. Can something be done along that line?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Seventieth Anniversary of the Death of Lord Craigavon (22 Nov 2010)

Lord Ian Richard Kyle Bannside: There is one thing that has been missed, which is the fact that the remains of the great man whom we have been talking about still carry the same message. I do not take people around the Building without showing them the marks on the floor where his monument stands. Certain evil people came into the House before I was a Member and tried to throw him down the stairs, but he still said “not...

Active Citizenship — Debate (18 Nov 2010)

Lord Bannside: My Lords, I should like, first of all, to say how deeply I have been touched by the kind words of welcome, both verbal and written, extended to me since my introduction to the House in July. My gratitude is also due to my two sponsors, the noble Baroness, Lady Boothroyd, and the noble Lord, Lord Morrow, and to the officers and staff of your Lordships' House, whose help and patience know no...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Spending Cuts (26 Apr 2010)

Ian Paisley: In light of the Conservative Party pledge to target Northern Ireland for public sector cuts, what does the First Minister suggest that we do now to ensure that we protect public services in Northern Ireland?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Mar 2010)

Ian Paisley: This is the last time I will bother the House and the Prime Minister with a question-I am sure he is greatly relieved about that. I would like to associate myself and my colleagues with the words of condolence spoken in the House today. This is a sad and tragic hour in our nation, and rumours of war and wars are common. There is sorrow in hearts. Of course, people bury their dead; they put up...

Justice and Northern Ireland (22 Mar 2010)

Ian Paisley: This will be my last contribution to debates in this Chamber. My friend the hon. Member for South Staffordshire (Sir Patrick Cormack) has just spoken about making his last speech on Northern Ireland, but I wish to remind myself that the reason that these Benches are not packed to capacity today is that things are moving in the right direction. If they were going in the wrong direction, many...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Preparatory Departments (15 Mar 2010)

Ian Paisley: I understand what took place. However, it was a sin in ignorance. When people come into the House they are not often warned that nobody can speak but the Members on the Floor, and that should be made clear. I know that it is difficult to say everything at once, but I do not think that you are short of speech, sir.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flooding in East Belfast (29 Sep 2009)

Ian Paisley: I live in East Belfast, and there is great concern in the whole area about the lack of action and the lack of change. We are talking about serious flooding. When I moved to Cyprus Avenue in East Belfast, we had a beautiful fruit garden, but that garden has been washed away by floods, and we cannot depend on it not being flooded. Every time that it rains, the floods come. Therefore, a large...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: McClean Conacre Case (28 Sep 2009)

Ian Paisley: There is unanimity in the House today. We all know the history of land Acts; we have read our history. In the House today, a solid body of people from all parties is saying the same thing and declaring that we cannot tolerate what is in mind. We are all saying that Ulster is not for sale; we are all saying that what we have we hold; and some of us are saying “No surrender”.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (11 May 2009)

Ian Paisley: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker, we are moving into a very difficult time. Therefore, it behoves us all to do our very best to encourage and strengthen those who are standing out against the sort of incident that was witnessed last night. I think that it is only right that the House declare plainly and clearly where it stands on this issue and how those Members who were put here by...

Cafcass: Northern Ireland ( 9 Mar 2009)

Ian Paisley: It has been said that great grief is not great at talking. We know that. There is a silence in the House today; there is a silence all over Northern Ireland today. There is grieving and despair, but behind the despair there is being born a unity that we have not seen before. I am sure that the Secretary of State will want to commend the people of Antrim from all denominations who showed that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health Bill [HL]:  Legislative Consent Motion ( 3 Mar 2009)

Ian Paisley: We should view the debate in the context and atmosphere of employment pressures. I am totally opposed to smoking. I smoked one cigarette, and, unlike Mr Shannon, I was not green — I was red, white and blue. I never smoked another cigarette. I want to respond to some remarks that have been made during the debate. One cannot compel people to take the road that you think that they should take....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matters Of The Day: Wrightbus (24 Feb 2009)

Ian Paisley: This is a sad day. I have just come from Ballymena, and, although this is a sad day, it is a day on which we must face up to this as a challenge. It is all right for us to say what we are saying, because it has to be said, but we must now face up to the challenge. Some years ago, Mr Wright and his friends faced up to a challenge in Ballymena, and they did a very good job of work. Everywhere...
