Northern Ireland Assembly: Agriculture and Rural Development: Single Farm Payments (15 Mar 2011)

P J Bradley: We have often heard that delays in payments can be caused by the farming community omitting information, giving incorrect information or making errors. Will the Minister give an assurance that no mistakes in her Department, including Orchard House, led to any delays in payments being made?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Justice: Maghaberry Prison: Drugs (8 Mar 2011)

P J Bradley: I welcome the Minister’s reply. Was that a one-off amnesty? Does the Minister have plans to introduce further amnesties, if he cannot ease the drug situation?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Justice: Maghaberry Prison: Drugs (8 Mar 2011)

P J Bradley: 4. asked the Minister of Justice if he can confirm that prison authorities recently introduced a drugs amnesty in Maghaberry prison. (AQO 1241/11)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (8 Mar 2011)

P J Bradley: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. On Monday 14 February 2011, a Member made and repeated a falsehood about my declarations of interest at Committee meetings during evidence sessions on the Welfare of Animals Bill. My accuser stated that at no time did I declare my honorary membership of the Northern Ireland veterinary association during meetings of the Committee. You will recall, Mr Speaker,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Education: DE: End-year Flexibility (28 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: 1. asked the Minister of Education for an update on how the new arrangements to replace end-year flexibility will operate.   (AQO 1165/11)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Education: DE: End-year Flexibility (28 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answer. Will she tell the Assembly what her Department will do in circumstances in which drawdowns exceed receipts, as is most likely to happen?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Agriculture and Rural Development: Young Farmers’ Clubs (22 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: 1. asked the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development for her assessment of the range of activities carried out and the benefits brought to rural communities by young farmers’ clubs.          (AQO 1106/11)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Agriculture and Rural Development: Young Farmers’ Clubs (22 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answer. I will not be rushing to the press with it; the young farmers’ union has already advised the media. Some Members have just come from a meeting of the Agriculture Committee at which there was quite a lot of controversy over the budget. Was the proposal to take money from the young farmers’ clubs the Minister’s own idea or was she acting on advice?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill:  Further Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. During the debate, a Member accused me of not declaring an interest as an honorary member of the Northern Ireland Veterinary Association. He was referring to discussions on the Bill as it went through Committee Stage. I ask you to check with the Committee and to report the findings to the House.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill:  Further Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Was the Member referring to me?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill:  Further Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I will leave it up to him to check the Hansard report.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill:  Further Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I declare an interest as an honorary member of the British Veterinary Association Northern Ireland. I am disappointed that anyone should, at this late stage, make an attempt to undo the very complementary work that the Committee for Agriculture and Rural Development, the Minister and her officials have put into the Welfare of Animals Bill over a long and testing period. It has been going on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill:  Further Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I will not. I will do as the Speaker does. I will look at the Hansard report in the morning and see what Mr Trevor Clarke had to say, and I will get back to him. All the amendments will be defeated heavily unless the DUP Chief Whip uses the whip. As the SDLP representative on the Committee, I wish to express my opposition to the eight amendments on the Marshalled List, and I will make brief...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill:  Further Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I will not give way. I heard enough earlier. If amendment No 4 succeeds, some unscrupulous owners will be the first to take advantage of the loophole. That is a given, so I am opposed to that amendment as well. Amendment No 5 has to be opposed simply because it reverses practically everything that has gone before, not only in Committee but everything presented to the full Assembly and agreed...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Dogs (Amendment) Bill: Final Stage (8 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I, too, welcome the Bill and support it. I declare an interest as I am an honorary member of the Northern Ireland veterinary association. I will not repeat what has been said, as I am against duplication. If I were to repeat everything that has been said, it would be very contradictory. I am for microchipping but not as a duplication of licensing or tagging. That many regulations now apply to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Enterprise, Trade and Investment: Unemployment (8 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: 1. asked the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment what steps her Department is taking to address the growing high level of unemployment in the South Down constituency and across Northern Ireland. (AQO 979/11)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Enterprise, Trade and Investment: Unemployment (8 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answer and the reference to the £21 million for South Down. We will take the same again if she has it. Is the Department making any specific attempt with regard to the hopeful return of our once-buoyant construction industry?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: I declare an interest as an honorary member of the British Veterinary Association Northern Ireland. On 22 September 2010, I attended one of the association’s seminars at Hillsborough, which planned to focus on some aspects of animal welfare and to highlight the expertise on animal welfare that exists in the veterinary profession. One of the speakers that day made a particular comment that I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare of Animals Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2011)

P J Bradley: The breed is included in amendment No 20, which the Chairperson has tabled and we are debating, but my view is that “combination” is open to different interpretations. The concluding paragraph is the one that I consider most relevant. I did not vote against the exemptions, purely on the back of an assurance that I was given by the Minister when I questioned her during the evidence session...
