Northern Ireland Assembly: Pig Industry (5 Oct 1998)

Danny Kennedy: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this important topic, which requires urgent attention. I am conscious of the fact that many of the points that I shall make have already been made, but it does no harm to reinforce them. I am concerned not just about the pig industry, but about agriculture as a whole in Northern Ireland. That is because I come from the largely rural constituency of Newry...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Comprehensive Spending Review (9 Nov 1998)

Danny Kennedy: I welcome the opportunity to ask questions on this important document, but I am concerned about the short notice. Many Members were away last week, and we have not had a proper opportunity to study this matter. We are getting answers, but I should like to see the deadline on this important document extended so that Members may have more time to consider this important document and make...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Electricity Supply (Newry and Armagh) (9 Nov 1998)

Danny Kennedy: I agree that there are many elderly people who suffer greatly if there are problems with heat during the winter, and I support the Member’s comments on this issue.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Presiding Officer’s Business (1 Feb 1999)

Danny Kennedy: On a point of order, Mr Initial Presiding Officer. Following the marvellous achievement of Ulster at Lansdowne Road at the weekend, is it in order for me to ask whether arrangements have been made for the Assembly to receive this great rugby team so that we may all rejoice in their achievement of becoming European champions?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Report Of First Minister (Designate) And Deputy: Determination of Ministerial Offices (16 Feb 1999)

Danny Kennedy: In the improbable event of the Member’s being invited to head a Department dealing with such inconsistent matters, would he be prepared to serve?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Nursery School Units: Admission Criteria (9 Mar 1999)

Danny Kennedy: The hour is late, and I am far from home. I knew that I had the capacity for making moving speeches, but I did not think that most of the Members in the Assembly would move out of the Chamber. Indeed the entire Public Gallery has cleared, except for the Doorkeepers who have to steward it. I hope that I do not come into the same category as that described by Lord Byron when referring to his...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Nursery School Units: Admission Criteria (9 Mar 1999)

Danny Kennedy: Would the Member reassure the House that he was not on the Titanic. [Laughter]

Danny Kennedy: I accept the office.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Affairs (14 Dec 1999)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Affairs (14 Dec 1999)

Danny Kennedy: Not directly.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Points of Order (15 Dec 1999)

Danny Kennedy: Mr Speaker, it may have escaped your notice that, in the course of your eloquence, the Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure left the Chamber.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ballycarrickmaddy Primary School (Lisburn) (31 Jan 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Mr Speaker, in respect of the answers given earlier to my Colleague Mr Davis, the Member for Lagan Valley, may I ask the Minister of Education if he will ensure that the allocation of funding in the current capital building programme will accurately reflect the size of the various education sectors? In particular, will he urgently address the historic disparity in funding to the controlled...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Hospital Services (31 Jan 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Do I have your assurance that you will deal with the matter urgently?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Points of Order (31 Jan 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Further to the earlier point of order which I raised, may I congratulate you for accurately predicting my concern. However, that concern has not yet been addressed. I find it most unsatisfactory that any Minister can come to answer questions and waste time giving an answer in one language, only to give what is presumably the same answer in English. This is clearly unsatisfactory, and I suggest —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Disruption in Schools (1 Feb 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. Will you exercise a little discretion in time allocations so that Members need not confine themselves exactly to five minutes? If they were halfway through an important sentence would you cut them off?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Disruption in Schools (1 Feb 2000)

Danny Kennedy: I am grateful for the opportunity provided by Mr Wilson, the Member for East Belfast, to speak in this important debate. The appointment of the current Minister of Education generated a very negative response in the entire community, and particularly in the Unionist community. This reaction was inevitable given the public persona and background of the individual concerned. Many people,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Disruption in Schools (1 Feb 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Thank you very much. However, she was a very nice person who had a famous ancestor who was good at writing. She wanted to tell all the boys and girls about him. In fact, a local man called Seamus, who was good at verse, liked her and helped her. But Mr Finbar would not budge. He stopped the visit, and all the local children were sad.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Disruption in Schools (1 Feb 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Sadder than that. [Laughter] Mr Finbar did not care, for he had an important friend called Martin, whom he sometimes saw. He knew that Martin would support him. But Martin had been very busy lately, for he had a new job and lots of new friends. He was very busy. But even though lots of people complained about Mr Finbar, Martin would not criticise his dear friend. So the very nice lady went...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Disruption in Schools (1 Feb 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Does the Member not accept that the terrorist warfare organised and instituted by Sinn Féin/IRA, particularly in an area such as south Armagh, has caused all these things? It is very important that security considerations be met and that there be a response to the security requirements. These situations were brought about entirely by the actions of Sinn Féin/IRA and the Republican movement.
