Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: NI Water Challenges ( 8 Apr 2024)

Alex Easton: At the outset, I reiterate my opposition to water charges. Our residents already pay for their water, and I am opposed to double taxation. Water is vital to life, and an efficient sanitation system is vital to the health of everybody. We saw during the pandemic how we shared responsibility for public health, and access to clean water for all is a basic pillar of our public health system. For...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Central Good Relations Fund ( 8 Apr 2024)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: MOT Testing: Backlog (11 Mar 2024)

Alex Easton: My comments will be short, as many of the points have been clearly stated. There is no doubt that the current MOT system is broken. That stems from COVID, which led to a huge backlog of vehicles that were not able to get MOTs. That has led to a broken system, with a broken computer system that either does not work properly or cannot cope with the demand. I have been inundated with complaints...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Pedestrian Crossing: St Columbanus’ College ( 5 Mar 2024)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Strategic Framework to End Violence against Women and Girls: Implementation (26 Feb 2024)

Alex Easton: I support the motion and the amendment. We must realise that violence against women and girls is not only a violation of human rights but a multidimensional issue that goes across economic, social and political boundaries. We see misogyny manifested in physical, sexual, psychological and economic harm. The statistics are horrifying, and we must focus on the fact that they are the lived...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Strategic Framework to End Violence against Women and Girls: Implementation (26 Feb 2024)

Alex Easton: Let me get on a wee bit. Let us ensure that, through prosecution, justice is done and seen to be done through robust legal frameworks, with tailored wrap-around support for the victim that includes healthcare, counselling and economic support to allow the rebuilding of lives. It also includes enhancing access to employment, vocational training, financial services and housing. Let us ensure...

Alex Easton: I thank the Minister for his statement. Will he assure me that my constituency, North Down, will get its fair share of the £1 million?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Election of Speaker and Deputy Speakers ( 7 Dec 2022)

Alex Easton: I despair at the political maturity and debate in this place and the hypocrisy that comes from some parties, which, in my opinion, are interested only in point-scoring and playing games and, no matter what section of the community they claim to represent, are not really interested in the lives of the people of Northern Ireland. When we look at the facts, we see that Sinn Féin brought down...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Election of Speaker and Deputy Speakers ( 7 Dec 2022)

Alex Easton: Sorry, no. Sinn Féin could not care less about the increasing costs that the Northern Ireland protocol is putting on the people of Northern Ireland. It could not care less, so you are hypocrites. You are total hypocrites. When we look at our Government in Westminster, we see that they are also playing with the lives of the people of Northern Ireland through costs, because they know that, if...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Election of Speaker and Deputy Speakers ( 7 Dec 2022)

Alex Easton: No. People need to realise that the Northern Ireland protocol, whether we like it or not, is a serious issue for the unionist population. I see some of my colleagues on the Ulster Unionist Benches shaking their heads, but some are not. Some agree that it is an issue. Until we get it sorted out, this place will not be coming back. There is a responsibility on all the political parties in here...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Election of Speaker and Deputy Speakers ( 7 Dec 2022)

Alex Easton: No, I will not. You do not meet or support one another. You are not willing to listen to other people's points of view.
