Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Climate Change Bill: North Antrim (17 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I place on record my appreciation of farmers in North Antrim and across Northern Ireland for the work that they do. I condemn yesterday's attack in a rural constituency, which had a real impact on our farming community in Loughguile. Will the Minister shed some light on the comments of the TD in the Irish Republic who is the Sinn Féin spokesperson on climate change? Clearly, he speaks with a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Omicron Contingency Plans: Prison Service (17 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for the information that she has provided to the Committee on the measures that have to be taken in the circumstances, and I commend the Prison Service for the way in which it has sought to deal with a challenging situation. Will the Minister assure the House that the budgetary pressure that is faced by the Prison Service will be addressed in a way that ensures that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Keeping Schools Open and Safe (10 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. You caught me unawares. I thought that you were going to go to somebody else. I declare an interest as a member of the board of governors of the William Pinkerton Memorial Primary School in Dervock and of Ballymoney High School. I take the opportunity to welcome the comments of my party colleague Diane Dodds and to condemn publicly the outrageous and horrific...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Keeping Schools Open and Safe (10 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: No one should be surprised that we are here today, not because of the continuing spread of the omicron COVID variant or the challenges that it brings but because it seems that there are parties in the Assembly that are interested in only a quick headline or a display of political opportunism at its very worst. Members opposite have talked about care and consideration. If they cared or had...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Keeping Schools Open and Safe (10 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: Thank you for the extra minute. Maybe I have missed something, but the fact is that some Members did not sign the recall petition. There are issues in relation to the party politics that are being played. Despite all the rhetoric of working together and the benefits of the local Executive, all we get from parties in the House is proof, if any were needed, that a five-party coalition exists...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Keeping Schools Open and Safe (10 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: — with a paper that was produced on that issue. It comes with a cost, and it is time that the Finance Minister came up with the money.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Keeping Schools Open and Safe (10 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: Will the Member give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Keeping Schools Open and Safe (10 Jan 2022)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Member for giving way. First, does he accept that we are in a Chamber that has no ventilation? The air conditioning is off; we cannot use it. It is time that we started to practise what we preach. Secondly, does he also accept that, if we do that in education, we will have to do it for the entire public sector, and the return to work is a big challenge?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Regional Strategic Transport Network Transport Plan (14 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: 5. Mr Storey asked the Minister for Infrastructure when she will publish the regional strategic transport network transport plan. (AQO 2925/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Regional Strategic Transport Network Transport Plan (14 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: The difficulty, Minister, with the answer that you have given today is that it is a repeat of what we have heard for the past number of months. All we get is, "We are planning to do this", and, in fact, in one answer to another Member, you said that you intended to publish a draft plan for public consultation late in 2021. We are getting pretty late now. Can the Minister assure me that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Criminal Justice (Committal Reform) Bill: Final Stage (14 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I apologise to the Minister for not being here for the start of her speech on the Final Stage of the Bill. I had to rush, so, if I collapse out of breath, you will know why. No doubt, plenty of Members will run to my assistance. On behalf of the Committee for Justice, I welcome the Final Stage of the Criminal Justice (Committal Reform) Bill. It is fair to say that it has been a more...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Robinson Memorial Hospital, Ballymoney (13 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: 4. Mr Storey asked the Minister of Health for an update on the refurbishment of the Robinson Memorial Hospital, Ballymoney. (AQO 2910/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Robinson Memorial Hospital, Ballymoney (13 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for his answer. What he has said is welcome news. It is disappointing, however, that the funding of this has had to come solely from the charitable Gordon Robinson Memorial Trust. The fact that the Robinson Hospital has existed for 88 years is, clearly, an indication of its commitment within the trust. However, will the Minister give an assurance that, with all the talk...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland Assembly Commission: Parliament Buildings: Maintenance and Minor Works (7 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: 11. Mr Storey asked the Assembly Commission for an update on the review of options for the future provision of maintenance and minor works. (AQO 2891/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland Assembly Commission: Parliament Buildings: Maintenance and Minor Works (7 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: Without being facetious, I have to say that the Member's answer sounded more like a repeat on a well-known media outlet. It is the same answer as we have been given a number of times. This issue has been running on since 2016. When will the Commission make a decision and resolve this long-standing problem? People in the Building need to be respected and paid appropriately, including members...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Damages (Return on Investment) Bill: Final Stage (7 Dec 2021)

Mervyn Storey: On behalf of the Committee for Justice, I welcome the Final Stage of the Damages (Return on Investment) Bill. The Committee appreciates the need for a stable, long-term personal injury discount rate to be set in Northern Ireland and for it to be reviewed at regular intervals, particularly given the uncertainty that there has been in recent times, with the reported negative impact in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Rural Halls Refurbishment Scheme (29 Nov 2021)

Mervyn Storey: 3. Mr Storey asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs for an update on the rural halls refurbishment scheme. (AQO 2811/17-22)
