Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Waste Water and Sewerage Capacity Crisis (5 Oct 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Member for giving way. One thing that has not been mentioned is the fact that the Minister and her Department have a duty under article 149 of the Water and Sewerage Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006. There has been a lot of talk in the House today about money, but clearly there is a legislative requirement for the Minister to ensure that she is compliant with article 149....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Waste Water and Sewerage Capacity Crisis (5 Oct 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Member for giving way. The hypocrisy of the party opposite never ceases to amaze me. Here we have a Member of the House advising the Minister to go to private finance, but her party blocked, when I was Minister for Social Development, going to the private sector to get money to build more houses. You cannot pick and choose to go the private sector whenever it suits you.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Irish State Collusion (28 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: — about the sectarian nature of the IRA campaign. Let us have the truth. Let Dublin tell us what they know. Let Members in this House face up to the reality of the past.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Irish State Collusion (28 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I commend my colleagues Diane Dodds and Tom Buchanan for tabling the motion. I also commend them for their work over many years to ensure that the memory of Ian Sproule and his family is not forgotten. Sadly, there are those in the House who want to airbrush the past. They want to change the past. Let us nail it for what it was. It was murder. It was the vilest of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Irish State Collusion (28 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I am quite happy to give way.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Irish State Collusion (28 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: The Member needs to take a history lesson: the prison gates were opened as a result of a political agreement that his party signed up to. You then see what that has led to. This is a sad reality: it has led to a corruption of the justice process in Northern Ireland. Subsequent to that, we had decommissioning. All the parties in the House talk about openness, transparency and truth. Let us...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Troubles Permanent Disablement Payment Scheme (27 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: 6. Mr Storey asked the First Minister and deputy First Minister what additional support, both practical and financial, will be given to organisations representing victims following the commencement of the Troubles permanent disablement payment scheme. (AQO 2457/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Troubles Permanent Disablement Payment Scheme (27 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: It is so sad that we have come to a place where we have to provide money for people who have permanent disablement as a result of the acts of terrorists and those who endeavoured to take life. It is ironic that, in the House today, there are people who talk about preserving life but were quite happy to justify the taking of life.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Troubles Permanent Disablement Payment Scheme (27 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: Will the deputy First Minister clarify whose responsibility it is to run the scheme? It seems as though the Minister of Justice has said, "I have created it, and now it is over to the Executive Office". Is that the case?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Court Care Home, Ballymoney (21 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I concur with the comments of my colleague from North Antrim Mr Allister on what was a magnificent display outside these Buildings and also the words of my other colleague in North Antrim sending our best wishes to the Northern Ireland ladies' football team — our national ladies' team. We wish them well for tonight. Today is World Alzheimer's Day. Later, the Health Minister will join with...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice (Sexual Offences and Trafficking Victims) Bill: Second Stage (13 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for the intervention and clarification on that point; her comments are noted. I turn to the provisions of the Bill, particularly clauses 16 and 17. There has been much media attention on human trafficking in Northern Ireland in recent months, with revelations that the numbers of potential victims entering the national referral mechanism (NRM) increased by 750%. I want...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice (Sexual Offences and Trafficking Victims) Bill: Second Stage (13 Sep 2021)

Mervyn Storey: I thank the Minister for bringing the Second Stage of the Bill to the House. I am pleased to speak as Chairman of the Committee for Justice. The Committee welcomes the Bill. We look forward to working with the key stakeholders and the Department during the Bill's scrutiny stage in the Committee. As the Minister has outlined, the Bill consists of 22 clauses and is divided into three Parts. The...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: British Government Proposal for Troubles Amnesty (20 Jul 2021)

Mervyn Storey: The Member opposite refused to give way. The question that was to be put to him was whether he will in the House name the "shadowy figures", as he called them, who are members of the army council today, not 50 years ago. If it is truth that we want, we need to know who is still on the army council.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: British Government Proposal for Troubles Amnesty (20 Jul 2021)

Mervyn Storey: We in the House must be sensitive and mindful today of the many thousands of people in Northern Ireland and further afield who feel betrayed and let down by the actions of Her Majesty's Government. While we have concerns about some of the wording in the motion and would have supported the Ulster Unionist Party's amendment, which was not accepted, we do not want any message to come from the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: British Government Proposal for Troubles Amnesty (20 Jul 2021)

Mervyn Storey: — who was from Cloughmills in my constituency. I passed the place where he was murdered on my way here today. Let his memory not be sullied by these proposals. I trust that they will be the given the rejection from the House that they deserve.
