Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Day Care for School-Leavers with Learning Disabilities (16 Sep 2002)

Mr John Fee: I welcome the Minister’s confirmation that a cross-departmental approach will be taken. Will her Department take the lead in examining the issue of young people with disabilities who have left full-time education or specialist schools? Will she examine the quality of the accommodation in day-care centres, the facilities and equipment, the number of support staff available, and training...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Asperger’s Syndrome (10 Sep 2002)

Mr John Fee: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I appreciate the fact that the two Ministers were here and gave such comprehensive commentary on what is going on. I should explain to Mrs I Robinson that the motion was originally tabled last October, but Members across the Chamber have accepted the spirit of the motion. The thrust of the work of the two lead Departments, as well as the other Departments, must centre...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Asperger’s Syndrome (10 Sep 2002)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Environment: Ring of Gullion (9 Sep 2002)

Mr John Fee: I thank the Minister for the work done by his Department and other agencies over recent years to promote a very beautiful part of Northern Ireland — south Armagh. Will the Minister specifically address the issues raised about military installations in relation to part of the designation guide, because one of the policy objectives is to diminish the impact of the military installations on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Financial Assistance for Political Parties (25 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: I speak from my party Benches, because I am not contributing on behalf of the Assembly Commission, though I have some insight into its thinking. It is because of the dreadful flaws in the principles behind the "Short money" in Westminster that the Commission has produced a scheme that will not allow abuses that pertain in Westminster to be replicated here. Consider all the money available to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Report by the Senior Salaries Review Body (25 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: I thank those Members who have participated in the debate. I shall be brief. I wish to reiterate that this initiative was not taken on the whim of the Assembly Commission. There is a statutory obligation under the Northern Ireland Act 1998 to try to advance certain measures and supports for all Members. The Commission has tried to do that as diligently and transparently as possible....

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Report of the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (24 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I need your direction. I couch my words in terms of my congratulations to you on assuming editorial control of the Official Report. Having received some direction recently, and as I was constrained in advocating the motion at the beginning, would it be an abuse of parliamentary procedures if I personally thanked Arthur, Simon, Agnes, Allan, Debbie, Cathy, Tom,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Report of the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (24 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: I beg to move That this Assembly takes receipt of the First Report of the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (NIA 102/01). I assume from the attendance in the Chamber this evening that there will be a run on Hansard tomorrow morning. I will be as brief as possible to ensure that our staff can get home at a reasonable hour tonight. I am moving the motion on behalf of the Assembly Commission...

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Report of the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (24 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: Each of the Assembly Commissioners has had a particular area of responsibility for one of the Directorates. With your permission, Mr Speaker, during the discussion of the annual report each Assembly Commissioner will speak for a couple of moments on the area or Directorate that is within their sphere of interest. This is the first report of the Assembly Commission. It has been a long time in...

Mr John Fee: 8. asked the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety to outline (a) any meetings that took place with Micheál Martin TD, Minister of Health and Children, in respect of the future of acute care, (b) any actions considered in terms of North/South co-operation and (c) what impact any such discussions has had on the detail of their proposals. (AQO 1613/01)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Hospitals: Cavan and Sligo (17 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: If people need acute hospital care, are vulnerable and in ill health, it is irrelevant on a small island such as Ireland where they go to be cured or for the necessary treatment. I welcome moves to improve the situation in Cavan and Sligo, but the population and demographics of the hinterland around Armagh, Newry, Monaghan, Dundalk and Drogheda lend themselves to much closer co-operation...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Amendments to Standing Orders (11 Jun 2002)

Mr John Fee: I want to talk specifically about the role of the Editor of Debates and the role of the Speaker and about paragraph (3) of the proposed new Standing Order 75, which states that "Editorial control of the Official Report (Hansard) shall rest ultimately with the Speaker but shall be exercised on his behalf by the Editor of Debates." I understand from what the Chairperson of the Committee on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Assembly Commission: Special Adviser (Speaker’s Office) (29 Apr 2002)

Mr John Fee: The Commission has taken advice from the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland. It will be designated for the purposes of providing an equality scheme, which is being prepared.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Assembly Commission: Advertisement of Assembly Posts (29 Apr 2002)

Mr John Fee: For posts at mid-management level and lower, that is to say those up to and equivalent to the level of Assistant Assembly Clerk, the Commission advertises in the ‘Belfast Telegraph’, the ‘News Letter’ and ‘The Irish News’. For more senior posts, that is those above the level of Assistant Assembly Clerk, the Commission uses the three regional daily newspapers, ‘The Times’ and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Assembly Commission: Advertisement of Assembly Posts (29 Apr 2002)

Mr John Fee: The Member may not be aware that that issue was raised on 19 March. The Assembly Commission decided that, in future, all specialist posts would be advertised in the relevant papers and specialist publications. I cannot explain fully why the advertisement was not placed in ‘Lá’, because the level of the post was such that the Assembly Commission was not involved. We are conscious of a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Assembly Commission: Advertisement of Assembly Posts (29 Apr 2002)

Mr John Fee: We are conscious that we are subject to section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998. The Commission and I have raised the issue of the compulsory retirement age for public servants working for the Assembly. Work is being done on the consequences for people who work here, whether on short-term contracts, as secondees or as full-time employees. That has not been resolved completely, but the...
