Northern Ireland Assembly: Economic Development Agencies (19 Dec 2000)

Danny Kennedy: I welcome the Minister’s announcement. Will he consider giving local authorities a more active role?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Higher and Further Education, Training and Employment: Further and Higher Education: Disability Rights (11 Dec 2000)

Will you investigate whether that is in accordance with the procedures of the House? It is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office of First Minister and Deputy First Minister: North/South Ministerial Council: Nominations (4 Dec 2000)

Danny Kennedy: Does the First Minister agree that the non-nomination of Sinn Féin Ministers to the North/South Ministerial Council is clearly appropriate because of their failure to honour their obligations of 6 May 2000? Does he agree that it is disgraceful that taxpayers’ money is being used to contest this issue in the courts, particularly when there are priorities in education and health?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Term-Time Workers (Education): Retainer Payment (28 Nov 2000)
