Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Environment: Wind Farm Planning Application and the Tourist Board  (Tappaghan Mountain) (7 Oct 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: I am delighted that consultation is being carried out with the Tourist Board, as Fermanagh depends greatly on tourism. Does the Minister agree that consultation with the Tourist Board should continue in respect of the erection of all wind farms across the Province? Our renowned landscape will be spoiled. Will the Minister undertake to explore and, perhaps, seed-fund other forms of renewable...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — First Minister and Deputy First Minister: Equality Commission (7 Oct 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: Will the Minister agree that, in the past, the Equality Commission has been too willing to back every case brought to it and that that has been the cause of its financial problems? That policy has also discredited the Equality Commission in the eyes of the public.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Water Quality and Planning (7 Oct 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: I welcome the Minister’s statement, which is much needed. The Minister has made the best of an extremely bad job in trying to make some sense of the issue. We must comply with the stringent — the Minister’s word — European legal environmental framework, which is enshrined in the EU Urban Waste Water Directive. Our almost-obsolete sewerage systems hold effluent that goes into the river...

Mrs Joan Carson: For years we have focused on terrorism and division, and I welcome the opportunity to bring about real change through the new developments in the draft Programme for Government.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Draft Programme for Government (24 Sep 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: I welcome the opportunity to make several points about the draft Programme for Government. I fully endorse the principles of sustainable development, the economic, social and environmental dimensions of which are interwoven. That is particularly true where such development impacts on the environment, which can affect the entire economy, especially tourism. The environment can impact...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Areas of Special Scientific Interest Bill: Second Stage (23 Sep 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: I welcome the Minister’s statement that he wishes to ensure the preservation of all our important areas. To ensure that ASSIs are effectively managed, it is important that new owners or occupiers of land be made aware of any conservation designations in place. The Nature Conservation and Amenity Lands (Northern Ireland) Order 1985 could be amended to include a requirement that an owner or...

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council: Inland Waterways (10 Sep 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: I thank the Minister for his report and I welcome it, especially given the employment of 50 people in Enniskillen, which is an unemployment black spot in my constituency. I welcome the upgrading of mooring facilities on Lough Erne, which are needed by tourists and boat owners. In his comprehensive works programme, will the Minister include an audit of the water quality of the Erne system? I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Education and Libraries Bill: Second Stage (2 Jul 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: The Bill boils down to providing the Department with the power to require education and library boards to adopt the common funding scheme. Clause 1 provides for widespread consultation, yet there does not appear to be any obligation on the Department to take note of any views expressed either by education and library boards or by boards of governors. Clause 13 refers to the power to modify...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Erection of Unauthorised Terrorist Memorials (11 Jun 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: Will the Member give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Erection of Unauthorised Terrorist Memorials (11 Jun 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: I support the motion. As I listened to Members’ comments I thought about canvassing in Fermanagh and South Tyrone, where we do not need memorials along the road. We can see the crossroads where someone was shot in the back; the tarmac patch where the bomb exploded and where several people were murdered. We cannot forget that. I agree with Ms McWilliams that we have to look forward. Here we...

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Impact of the Aggregates Tax on Businesses in Fermanagh and South Tyrone (27 May 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: Much of what I have to say is repetitive; but as a former schoolteacher, I believe that repetition helps to hammer the message home. I thank Mr Gallagher for raising this matter, and I am glad that so many Members from the Fermanagh and South Tyrone constituency have stayed for the debate. I welcome the debate and support its intention. I understand the thinking behind the Government’s...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Bed Occupancy (South Tyrone Hospital) (20 May 2002)

Mrs Joan Carson: Perhaps the Minister does not remember that the South Tyrone Hospital has 200 beds that could be used. Has the Minister had any contact with the Royal College of Surgeons with regard to reinstating the vital services which have been moved temporarily from south Tyrone to Craigavon? When does she intend to reinstate them?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Planning Applications (Wind Farms) (10 Dec 2001)

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council: Education (10 Dec 2001)

Mrs Joan Carson: Regarding special education, the Minister said that the Council "decided to fund the development of videos for the parents". Who will develop those videos, and how will they be distributed? Subsequently, he said that "We have shared our experiences of the reading recovery programme". Are those the experiences of Ministers, teachers or civil servants? The Minister referred to new materials...
