Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Cavity Insulation: NIHE Properties (24 Jan 2017)

Michelle Gildernew: Does the Member agree with me that, while the situation in the tower blocks is dire, many homes in rural areas are solid wall with no cavity wall insulation — indeed, no insulation at all — and that something needs to be done to rectify that, especially given that COPD, asthma and other respiratory conditions can result from it?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Social Strategy (5 Dec 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: The Minister talked about going out to public consultation, and he said that he wants it to be a full consultation. How does he intend to consult with harder-to-reach rural communities?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court Services: Access (29 Nov 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: Therefore, I ask the House to support the motion and suspend the house sales scheme.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: House Sales Scheme (28 Nov 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the motion. Given that the focus so far on housing in general tends to be on urban areas, I will make particular reference to housing need in rural areas. At the moment, NISRA classifies all settlements below a population of 5,000 inhabitants as rural. On the basis of that definition, there are just under 600 settlements located in the rural...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: South Tyrone Hospital: Inpatient Services (28 Nov 2016)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Savings (Government Contributions) Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (22 Nov 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: I concur with much of what the Chair of the Communities Committee and my colleague on that Committee Nichola Mallon have said. I am sorry that I was not able to stay for last night's debate, but I too want to point out that, while this is a welcome development, there are people in my constituency, Minister, who are stretching a jar of milk to pay day. These are people who are working and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Regeneration Bill (22 Nov 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: I thank the Minister for his statement. I am delighted he is considering lowering — hopefully, he will remove it altogether — the threshold for public realm investment in smaller towns and villages. It was regrettable that the threshold was introduced by a previous Minister for Social Development. It has really been a disadvantage to many small towns and villages. The Minister...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Licensing and Registration of Clubs (Amendment) Bill: Extension of Committee Stage (14 Nov 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: I appreciate the opportunity to say a few words on the motion. The Committee has been busy scrutinising the Bill and the submissions it has received and speaking to stakeholders. While we are delighted to get the opportunity this early in the mandate to discuss the legislation, and we are keen to deal with it as quickly as possible, it is only right that we take the time to do it properly...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Child Support (Deduction Orders and Fees) (Amendment and Modification) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2016 (8 Nov 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: Go raibh mile maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. The former Committee for Social Development considered the SL1 relating to these regulations in March 2016 and was content with the policy objectives of the proposed legislation. The rule was brought before the Committee for Communities in June 2016, and the Committee had no objection to the rule. Members may be aware that, in June 2014, the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: October Monitoring (25 Oct 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: You do not want me taking a fit of the giggles in the middle of this, a LeasCheann Comhairle. I thank the Minister for his statement and for answering the questions with his usual honesty, clarity and a few other things. How important has the input been of the Welsh and Scottish Secretaries and the Basque Finance Department — I know that he has had discussions with them recently...
