Bill Presented: Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 Section 7 (30 Sep 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for his commitment to trying to move this forward. I entirely agree with what the hon. Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield) said about there being no reason why this legislation cannot be passed very quickly, given the way Brexit legislation is now being put through in a matter of hours and given the way abortion law has been changed in a matter of hours...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Nigel Dodds: There will be many people, not least the families of senior judges who were murdered in Northern Ireland—many of them, including a Lord Justice of Appeal—who will wish that the Leader of the Opposition had really put his words today into action much, much earlier in his career, when he supported a terrorist organisation that murdered judges. We talk about respect for the rule of law; it...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law): Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 Section 3(2) (9 Sep 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I will be brief because I know many Members want to get in, although there are many things I could say. I agree with what has been said about the curtailing of this debate. Some of these issues are extremely important, but nothing is more important than the victims of violence and historical institutional abuse in Northern Ireland. It is madness that we have ended up in a situation where...

Northern Ireland (5 Sep 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I welcome the Secretary of State and his ministerial team to their posts. We look forward to working with them in the days and weeks ahead. Let me reiterate our commitment to getting Stormont up and running as quickly as possible, although I welcome the concentration on the need for direct decision-making powers to be taken in the event that that is not possible. As the shadow Secretary of...

G7 Summit (3 Sep 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I welcome what the Prime Minister has said about the backstop because he knows, as the entire House knows, that that is one of the fundamental reasons why the withdrawal agreement could not get through this House. Not only is it anti-democratic in the sense that laws would be made for the economy of Northern Ireland and nobody in Belfast or London would have any say at all in the making of...

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: In following the right hon. Member for Staffordshire Moorlands (Karen Bradley), may I also thank her for her public service to Northern Ireland? I warmly congratulate the Prime Minister on his appointment and thank him for the conversations that we have had, and we look forward to further conversations in the coming weeks to ensure that we can have a sustainable Conservative and Unionist...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I join others in thanking the Prime Minister for her years of public service as Home Secretary and as the Prime Minister, for the thoroughly decent, dedicated, honourable way she has carried out all her our duties, and for the very courteous and proper way she has dealt with us as a party. Working together, we have ensured that there actually is a Conservative and Unionist Government of the...

Situation in the Gulf (22 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I thank the Foreign Secretary for his statement and for his service in his current role. I thank him for the way in which he has carried out those duties, and not only on the big international set-piece occasions; I know of his own deeply personal and intense commitment to the welfare of UK citizens across the world, particularly those who have been detained—not just the high-profile cases,...

Pensions for Severely Disabled Victims (Northern Ireland) (22 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: Thank you very much indeed, Mr Speaker—I appreciate that very much. I welcome very warmly what the Minister and the shadow Minister said in the House today and the consensus that there is on this issue. I pay tribute to the many victims, including Michelle Williamson, who lost both her parents in the Shankhill bombing in October 1993, when nine innocent people were murdered on the Shankhill...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Progress reports (18 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: No, I do not have time. I only have five minutes, and everyone who wishes to speak will get a chance to do so. Sadly, when it comes to Northern Ireland debates, the Chamber fills up and people take an interest only when it serves their purposes. I would like to see as many people take an interest in Northern Ireland affairs when we are debating issues that really affect and have a practical...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Progress reports (18 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I want to get back to the Bill’s original purpose. Representatives from Northern Ireland and our constituents have forcefully made the point that it is very disconcerting that a Bill that extends two dates to allow for talks, which are already under way, has been, in the words of my hon. Friend the Member for North Antrim (Ian Paisley), hijacked for other purposes. Some of the debates are...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend, and I pay tribute to the work that she has done in this area over many years in Northern Ireland, grappling with those issues. It is frustrating that at times—I have to say this—certainly in the Northern Ireland Office, there has been a well of opposition that has served to obstruct these issues going forward. I do not speak about the current...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: I want to speak to the amendments tabled in my name and those of my right hon. and hon. Friends, and by Government Members, in relation to the military or armed forces covenant and its application across the United Kingdom, and on the definition of victims, again on a UK-wide basis. In amendment 19, we refer to the Victims and Survivors (Northern Ireland) Order 2006, but we believe that we...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Nigel Dodds: The right hon. Gentleman has put the matter extremely eloquently and concisely, and he is absolutely right. We are bringing forward a simple request to plead for justice, decency and fairness. It cannot be right that innocent victims are left without a pension because victims of their own terrorist actions may benefit as well. We have to address, therefore, the issues of the military covenant...
