Mrs Annie Courtney: The construction industry, planners and developers have been waiting for this news for a long time.

That will be good news for those who may be in the process of laying off workers, and it is good news for the construction industry as a whole.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Warm Homes Scheme (30 Sep 2002)

Mrs Annie Courtney: The Minister has pre-empted my question.

Will the Minister ensure that employees are not put under further stress by having that information on their employment record?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Belfast Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Centre (30 Sep 2002)

Mrs Annie Courtney: I support the motion. The Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Centre (NI) is associated with the Network of Rape Crisis Centres Ireland. As was mentioned earlier, a helpline is provided free of charge for victims of sexual violence. Some time ago, the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety passed an application for research funding to the Minister. Disappointingly, there has been no...

Mrs Annie Courtney: I congratulate the Minister on his positive and comprehensive report. As my party’s spokesperson on health matters, I would like to ask the Minister a question about the increase in the health budget. He, like his predecessor, has allocated extra resources to the health budget, and details of the total increase to the budget since devolution were given in answer to a previous question. What...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Energy Inquiry Report (23 Sep 2002)

Mrs Annie Courtney: I welcome the Minister’s response, which, for the large part, was positive. Most of the 45 recommendations fall within his remit.

The projected commissioning date for the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Hospital Waiting Lists (17 Sep 2002)

Mrs Annie Courtney: No, not at the moment. I worked in the Health Service for over 20 years; I was a theatre sister for most of that time. I stood at the operating table night after night, not because of waiting lists, but because of the bombings, shootings and killings on the street. The following day health workers had to suffer the indignity of listening to people who supported such actions. Night after...

Mrs Annie Courtney: Madam Deputy Speaker, I understood that we had seven minutes to wind up.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Hospital Waiting Lists (17 Sep 2002)

Mrs Annie Courtney: Thank you for that, Madam Deputy Speaker. I also welcome the commitment of the Minister to address the issues in an effective and coherent manner. With regard to amendment No 1, we find that it is too vague to be of any assistance in tackling waiting lists. It will impose extra bureaucracy on the Department and trusts.
