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

Mr Oliver Gibson: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Is there anywhere in Northern Ireland that supplies yellow marble?

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

Mr Oliver Gibson: Will the Member give way?

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

Mr Oliver Gibson: I support the motion. At times we have been guilty of missing the main point of this debate. I do not call these objects "memorials". They are wayside platforms for the promotion of the political activists who have supported terror in this country. This is another part of the IRA/Sinn Féin terror campaign. It is a form of political and institutional terror and a way of dominating the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Report of the Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure:  Cultural Tourism and the Arts (11 Jun 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I am not a member of the Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure, but I support the report. I have a long-time vested interest in cultural tourism. Many years ago, perhaps to my own discredit, I promoted, in the Omagh District Council area, the idea of basing a 51-mile trail on the inspirational points and places of W F Marshall, who was one of the first people to broadcast on the BBC in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Future of Europe (5 Jun 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I am not sure that it is wise to engage in a take-note debate at six o’clock in the evening. There have been some ridiculous comments about Europe.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Future of Europe (5 Jun 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I was simply hoping to get home early. However, I did hear the SDLP abandon Nationalism. Suddenly, they have become Unionists, and Éamonn ONeill says he wants to be a European Unionist. National Socialism and Republicanism are no longer relevant; there has been a volte-face, and the SDLP has left the junior Minister on his own. Its members have suddenly become European Unionists. That is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Human Organs Inquiry (5 Jun 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: The idea of organ donations has been seriously damaged by the discovery made 15 months ago. How does the Minister propose to restore confidence in that successful and essential way to extend useful life?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development: Multilingual Signs (13 May 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Can the Minister guarantee that his Department will not spend millions of pounds unnecessarily on bilingual signs when there are higher priorities in his Department?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Reinvestment and Reform Initiative (7 May 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Last week, I was tempted to hijack a plane that was supposed to be arriving laden with millions of pounds. However, the roads infrastructure in west Tyrone was so bad that there were no white lines to guide the plane down. First, have Government bonds been ruled out? Is that a good financial manoeuvre in view of the fact that loans would be long-term? Are we talking about a fixed-term...

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council:  Environment (29 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I was interested in the Minister’s reply to the Deputy Chairperson of the Environment Committee. Will the Minister explore the issue further? The dominant principle in Europe is that the producer of pollution pays. What efforts has the Minister made, in conjunction with the United Kingdom Government and European manufacturers, to ensure that pollution is reduced at source? Massive efforts...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Burns Report (23 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Much of what needs to be said about the Burns Report has already been covered. Of the many representations that I have received, not one supported the Burns Report. In fact, a large organisation such as the Ulster Farmers’ Union felt compelled to respond with comments that have been echoed in the Chamber today. That group represents about 25,000 families. The proposals will disadvantage...

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council: Education (22 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Three years ago I asked the Minister to investigate the possibility that those who had earned their livelihood in the South of Ireland teaching and lecturing could have their superannuation made available if they came to reside in Northern Ireland. Can the Minister assure us today that that anomaly has been eradicated and that those who worked and earned their superannuation in the South of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council: Foyle, Carlingford and Irish Lights Commission (22 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: The Minister mentioned the significant reduction in illegal fishing. Foot-and-mouth disease prevented possible public prosecutions. Have fish counts on the machines at Sion Mills and Newtownstewart shown a significant increase in the various types of fish making their way into the Mourne, the Strule, and the Foyle? Locally, the perception is that illegal fishing is still rampant and that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council: Agriculture (22 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Will the Minister be specific as to what measures she has introduced to deal with the backlog of animals with tuberculosis? What measures has she introduced, since the current regulations on cross-border importation of animals, to protect the health of animal stocks in Northern Ireland?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Report of the Committee of the Centre:  European Union Issues (8 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I have great pleasure in supporting the recommendation from the Committee Chairperson earlier today. The 43 recommendations are a serious attempt to represent the various interests that take the view that Northern Ireland, as a region, should be well represented in Europe. As several Members have said, those people are fully aware that 80% of the policies that affect us directly in Northern...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and learning: Third-Level Education at Regional Centres (8 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: 4. asked the Minister for Employment and Learning what plans she has to ensure third-level education can be accessed through regional centres. (AQO 1068/01)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and learning: Third-Level Education at Regional Centres (8 Apr 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Does the Minister consider that there is now a growing demand for third-level qualifications, particularly among those who are participating in work programmes, and that those should be available through local access? What plans does the Minister have to ensure that such third-level qualifications can be accessed at regional level — for example, at the new college in Omagh?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture and rural development: Young Dairy Farmers (19 Mar 2002)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I thank the Minister for a full reply. I am not sure that I could recommend to many of my young constituents that they embark on a career in the dairy industry, because the acquisition of quota is now not always a financially profitable move. I ask the Minister to consider another concern in west Tyrone. One of the longest established dairy companies has been Nestlé in Omagh. It has recently...
