Danny Kennedy: I will give way briefly.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Social Investment Fund (6 Dec 2016)

Danny Kennedy: Nothing, frankly, surprises me about the management of this at the top political level. This is not a criticism of people on the ground who have spent their own time on effecting positive change in communities. I pay tribute to that work.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Social Investment Fund (6 Dec 2016)

Danny Kennedy: We are about getting a proper inquiry into the mess in the formulation of the process.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Social Investment Fund (6 Dec 2016)

Danny Kennedy: It is important that we have the opportunity to debate this important issue before we break for the Christmas recess. I think that we have already heard that there are some in the House who would rather the issue was not on the agenda. The social investment fund was intended to bring relief and hope to some of our most deprived communities. That, in itself, is a very noble thing and is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Social Investment Fund (6 Dec 2016)

Danny Kennedy: Clearly, the Member is in winter wonderland if she thinks that Colin McCusker or any representative from the Ulster Unionist Party would do otherwise, because, at community level, that is what supporting communities is about.

Danny Kennedy: The Member is young and inexperienced. [Laughter.] We should be abundantly clear that the mess in this has been with the establishment of the process.

The social investment fund has come under intense scrutiny over the past number of months, particularly focusing on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Planning Applications: NIEA Responses (5 Dec 2016)

Danny Kennedy: I am grateful to the Minister for her answers thus far. Is she aware of the discrepancy in the times that it takes local councils to process agricultural planning applications? For instance, in Antrim and Newtownabbey, agriculture-related applications last year took an average of 18 weeks, compared to over a year in Newry, Mourne and Down District Council. Will the Minister investigate...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: International Human Rights Day (5 Dec 2016)

Danny Kennedy: I am pleased to contribute to this important debate. As with others, the irony is not lost on me that Sinn Féin proposed the motion. It is sometimes difficult to take lectures from Sinn Féin on the issue of human rights, given its background. One hopes that that is in the past, but it is important that those issues are not forgotten. International Human Rights Day gives us the...
