Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Business Community (6 Mar 2019)

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill: Issue of sum out of the Consolidated Fund for the year ending 31 March 2019 and appropriation of that sum (5 Mar 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: May I ask the hon. Lady to take a few moments and reflect on the very significant Supreme Court decision in June 2018, in a case brought by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission, and the very critical comments that the judges made about the lack of appropriate legislation in Northern Ireland? I think I am right in saying that the situation in relation to the abortion legislation in...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill (5 Mar 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: I am sure I am not the only one who blinked and drew breath when I heard the Minister use the words “the drug of direct rule.” Perhaps I misheard him, but I will give him the opportunity to pick a more appropriate noun to describe direct rule.

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill (5 Mar 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: The Secretary of State will be well aware that, in evidence to the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee, a considerable amount of criticism has been expressed of the budget allocation to the Education Department. In particular, we have heard evidence that primary schools have had to ask for donations of toilet roll, in addition to pencils and the other things that one would usually expect. Can...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill (5 Mar 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for allowing me to intervene for a second time. She has said twice in quick succession that the Bill is to allow a budget that takes into account any circumstances in Northern Ireland—that allows Departments to plan ahead. May I just mention Brexit to her? Can she actually tell us how much has been allocated in the Bill towards Brexit preparations and...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill (5 Mar 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: I am extremely grateful; it really is very generous of the Secretary of State to give way again. I am reading the legislation before us, which we are asked to give our consent to. Under the allocation for the Department of Justice, it says in black and white —I have not invented this— “expenditure on activities that are required as a result of the United Kingdom’s exit from the...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill (5 Mar 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: May I record my serious disappointment that in the allocations we are going to approve today there appears to be absolutely no money at all set aside for the victims of historical institutional abuse? Will the Secretary of State confirm that the head of the Northern Ireland civil service, David Stirling, indicated that the Government would have a moral obligation, after the consultation on...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Friends will be allowed a free vote in the event that the Prime Minister again does not win the meaningful vote if we have one before the middle of March. Will the Conservative Government allow Conservative Members to have a free vote in the event of a...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: I am grateful to the right hon. and learned Gentleman for allowing me to intervene. I thought he was going to mention the other significant change, which is the Labour party’s policy on a second referendum. As he will know, the Prime Minister warned in January this year that a second referendum could “damage social cohesion”. Does the Labour party believe that the Prime Minister was...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: The Minister will be well aware that we are approaching the 21st anniversary of the signing of the Belfast/Good Friday agreement on 10 April, just days after we are due to brexit. I had assumed, and I want him to confirm this, that in the light of the Government’s repeated emphasis on their commitment to the Belfast/Good Friday agreement throughout the Brexit negotiations, and rightly so,...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: I thank the shadow Brexit Secretary for allowing me to intervene on that very important point. He is very knowledgeable about Northern Ireland and is a great friend to Northern Ireland. He will recognise the importance of the backstop to the people of Northern Ireland and indeed across the United Kingdom. There seems to be some confusion about what the leader of the Labour party says about...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way, although he may not be so grateful for this intervention. Will he confirm that the British Government have absolutely no intention of replacing the backstop, which is essential for maintaining peace on the island of Ireland—a hard-won peace that we value in Northern Ireland?

Northern Ireland: Restoring Devolution (13 Feb 2019)

Sylvia Hermon: May I ask the Secretary of State if she really appreciates the deep sense of anger—continuing anger—among the general public in Northern Ireland that Members of the Legislative Assembly continue to receive their salaries with only minor reductions?
