Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: My remarks will be quite short. In making political appointments, there is a responsibility on parties not to display cronyism. That is a view that the Sinn Féin president shared in the Dáil recently when she criticised Simon Coveney. It is therefore something that Sinn Féin in the North needs to reflect on when making political appointments. I listened carefully to the Member opposite,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I am happy to answer that. I looked up Wikipedia and "Ulster Resistance" while I was sitting here, and it states that a young press officer by the name of Nigel Dodds handed out leaflets outside the Ulster Hall.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: It is right that we talk about and remember victims here. They have been neglected for far too long. They have certainly been neglected when it comes to legacy, and not only have they been most adversely affected by what the British Government are seeking to do through the horrendous proposals in their Command Paper but they have been neglected by this House. Not so long ago, the DUP's former...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, but I am only —.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I thank the Member for his intervention — and his redirection.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, but I did read an article. I will send it to you. Anyway, I want to return to Mr Muir's point. We want to build an inclusive and reconciled future. I acknowledge the work that many have done on policing, none more so than former party colleagues, some of whom, sadly, are no longer with us. I think particularly of Seamus Mallon and Alex Attwood and what they did...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I thank the Member for giving way. Does he agree that we find it difficult to take lectures from some of the Members opposite, whose party stood in the Ulster Hall with Ulster Resistance, threatening violence, at the time of the Anglo-Irish Agreement and whose own moral judgement has been compromised?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I thank the Member for giving way and for the clarity that he is not here to speak on behalf of any particular MLA, but is the Member not somewhat bemused by some of the Members who, at times, have a pick-and-mix attitude to who they get their photographs taken with, who they share stages with, what parades and protests they attend and who is involved in them? It gives mixed messages to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Access to Health and Social Care (21 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I will endeavour to be generous with time. A number of constituents have contacted my office in dire straits and with deep anxiety not only on their own behalf but on behalf of a family member about accessing health and social care. We have rightly heard a lot of talk about the challenging figures on COVID infection, which continue to rise, and the impact of the pandemic, but not enough is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Organ and Tissue Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill: Second Stage (20 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: Thank you for that intervention, Mr Weir. Much comfort has been brought to those who are still very much grieving the loss of such a young person from knowing that others are able to live a much fuller and higher-quality life. That does not take away the pain, but it helps them to cope better. They have pride in their loved one and in the courageous decision that they made when faced with...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Organ and Tissue Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill: Second Stage (20 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I am very pleased to be able to participate in this debate. I give my full support to the Bill. In doing so, I pay tribute to all the tireless campaigners who brought us to this stage, none more so than my constituency colleague Jo-Anne Dobson, who is also a party colleague of the Minister and a former MLA. Jo-Anne, a kidney donor for her son, is very familiar with and passionate about this...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Roads in South Antrim (14 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: I thank the Member for South Antrim for securing the debate on roads in his constituency. Members might wonder at me participating in it, but I live in south Antrim, although not in the constituency. Many of the roads in my constituency lead directly into the Member's area. They need repairs; there is no doubt about that. Participating in the debate also gives me the opportunity to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Animal Cruelty Register (14 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: T6. Mrs D Kelly asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, after resisting the temptation to remind the DUP that Brexit and the protocol are entirely of its making, for a progress report on an animal cruelty register. (AQT 1556/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Animal Cruelty Register (14 Sep 2021)

Dolores Kelly: The good people of Upper Bann will have an opportunity in the coming months to say whether they believe that I stand up for them. Has the Minister agreed a timescale for the animal welfare register with the Minister of Justice?
