Mr Oliver Gibson: "There’s Cavanamara and dark Derrymeen, There’s Carrickatane and Munderrydoe, With Strawletterdallan and Cavankilgreen All dancing a jig with Cregganconroe." There are three essential reasons why townlands should be retained. First, there is a legal reason. Most of us live in or own property that is identified by its county, its barony and its townland. Legally, we should retain a...

Mr Oliver Gibson: In the last round of funding, west Tyrone received 49% of available money for GAA, which is a sectarian leisure pursuit, and 4% for football, which is a cross-community pursuit.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Child Protection (4 Jul 2001)

Mr Oliver Gibson: Our main difficulty is that suitability checks are not applied in a standard fashion throughout the Province. Also, there is no system that applies to workers coming in from Wales, England or Scotland, mainly because of the speed with which devolution has taken place. There are no quick verifiable checks in place. The Assembly should take that on board, and the Minister should try to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Winter Service Review (3 Jul 2001)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I am pleased that the Minister has accepted the review’s recommendations on this issue. People in west Tyrone will particularly welcome his comments about small settlements.

Mr Oliver Gibson: What are the current arrangements for funding the research of our newer industries? Does the Minister consider a close link between the universities and industry to be essential?

Mr Oliver Gibson: How is the Minister intending to finance those works?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Public Expenditure: June Monitoring (2 Jul 2001)

Mr Oliver Gibson: I welcome the Minister’s statement and the facts and figures that he has given. The Minister posed several questions about carrying forward money. First, I would like him to consider the idea of being able to carry money forward, or give a guarantee that a project entered into can be sustained over a period of time. I am thinking of the Hayes Report, which recommends a hospital for the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Report of the Committee of the Centre – Commissioner for Children (26 Jun 2001)

Mr Oliver Gibson: All Committee members were struck by the enthusiasm, genuineness and sincerity of the presentations. Without doubt, they proved the need for a commissioner for children and demonstrated that there is a failing in the present system.
