Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly: Standing Orders (14 Sep 1998)

Nigel Dodds: I would have thought that where there is no division it was quite evident that there is cross-community support. Mr Empey’s point is a good one.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly: Standing Orders (14 Sep 1998)

Nigel Dodds: I join Mr Haughey in expressing our gratitude to the clerks who have had to work very hard at the outset of this Committee to gather all the relevant papers and documentation from other places. The real work of this Committee begins now, for we have really only begun to discuss the main issues. It would be wrong to deal just with the procedures and the setting up of the Committee and not to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly: Ad Hoc Committee on Procedural Consequences of Devolution (14 Sep 1998)

Nigel Dodds: May I come back to the point about the United Unionist Assembly Party and its representation on this Committee? As a member of the Standing Orders Committee, and not wishing to add to the work of that Committee unnecessarily, I think that the Initial Standing Orders are already clear on this point. We do not need clarification from the Standing Orders Committee, for Rule 15(2) says "each...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly: Committee on Standing Orders (1 Jul 1998)

Nigel Dodds: Mr Initial Presiding Officer, you say that there is no bell. Will the impending vote be announced throughout the building?

As no one could sign the Roll before the first sitting, technically...

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Minister (Designate) and Deputy (1 Jul 1998)

Nigel Dodds: It was very interesting to hear a representative of IRA/Sinn Fein chastising Mr McCartney and others about the equality agenda and the Irish language. Such people make much of the Irish language, but in other forums, such as Belfast City Council, they never mention it. Typically, they are playing to the cameras and to the Gallery. Of course, as has been pointed out, many Sinn Fein Members do...

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Minister (Designate) and Deputy (1 Jul 1998)

Nigel Dodds: I hope it is a point of order.

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Minister (Designate) and Deputy (1 Jul 1998)

Nigel Dodds: Are you ruling that that was not a point of order?

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Minister (Designate) and Deputy (1 Jul 1998)

Nigel Dodds: Mr Maskey may be trying to cover his embarrassment in front of his party, but that does not alter the facts that I have outlined. They are on the record, as you, Sir, as a former member of Belfast City Council, will know. The issues have been laid fairly and squarely before the House. We are being asked to vote on a package. We know where Mr Mallon and the Social Democratic and Labour Party...
