Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Environment Strategy (24 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for his statement. It will be noted that there are those who cry much about the environment and purport to be the champions of the environment who did not have the courtesy to come to the House and be present when the statement was being made. I declare an interest, as I have a brother-in-law who farms near the Garry Bog in my North Antrim constituency. Will the Minister...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Bovine Tuberculosis in Northern Ireland (24 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for his statement. Clearly, there are some in the House who want to continue with the same old, same old and get the same outcomes at a huge cost to the public purse and to farms in Northern Ireland. The Minister is absolutely right: it is a scourge. We have seen the consequences on farms in our constituencies of what bovine TB does to our farm industry and to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Future Agricultural Policy Decisions for Northern Ireland (24 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I am sure that the Minister will be aware, having listened to the Member who spoke before me, that the farmers of North Antrim will make an informed choice about who best supported farmers during this mandate of the Assembly. Thankfully, our hands have not been on any legislation that would have decimated and destroyed sheep farmers, beef farmers and the farming industry in its totality. I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Minister for the Economy: Achievements (22 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for his answer. All politics is local, so I will bring it back to my constituency, North Antrim. Will the Minister join me in congratulating Christies Direct, a local company in Ballymoney, which will celebrate 30 years in business next weekend? It is now part of the Californian Nexus Brands Group, one of the largest organisations in that industry in the world. As that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Magilligan Prison: CJINI Report (22 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: The report identified areas of innovative work, to which the Minister referred, that resulted in particularly good practice, including: "care driven by the Prison Safety and Support Team" and the work of: "Family Support Officers ... in partnership ... to sustain and promote family contact". Will the Minister take the opportunity of her final Question Time to thank our prison and associated...

The Department's correspondence outlined that Access...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Connect2 Regional Hubs (21 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: In the Minister's original answer, he talked about the hubs becoming operational "when appropriate". Can he elaborate on what that means? Does "when appropriate" mean "when we have in place a proper return-to-work policy", so that spaces that have been identified are no longer continually vacant?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Concessionary Fares Scheme (21 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: The Minister said that, for the continuation of the scheme, it will be vital that we have an infrastructure to deliver it. When will the regional strategic transport network plan be published? She has promised the House on a number of occasions that it would be, but we are told today that it is going out to consultation?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland Assembly Commission: Parliament Buildings: COVID-19 Precautions (15 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I concur with the comments about being cautious. However, even though we are in the last weeks of the mandate, for how much longer will the stationery office in the Building be closed to Members and their staff? That has been the case since the commencement of the restrictions.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland Assembly Commission: Stormont Estate: Commemorative Events and Memorials (15 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Commission member for his answer. A successful event was held in the grounds of the estate on Monday — Commonwealth Day — to mark Her Majesty's platinum jubilee. Does that not show that, when there is an absence of bigotry and political prejudice, an agreement can be reached that accurately reflects the history of Northern Ireland? Will the Member commit to having further...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Hospital Car Parking Charges (15 Mar 2022)

Mervyn Storey: The Minister mentioned the deficit in funding. Does that mean that, as a result of the imposition of the legislation, instead of us having money and the car parks being managed, there will be a free-for-all? If so, that will undoubtedly lead to chaos in our hospital car parks, as opposed to the current situation in which they are managed and revenue is generated from them.

Mervyn Storey: His conscience is bothering him.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Hospital Car Parking Charges (15 Mar 2022)
