Exiting the European Union: Northern Ireland (27 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: Whether he has had discussions with representatives of Sinn Féin on that party’s priorities for Northern Ireland in the negotiations on the UK leaving the EU; and if he will make a statement.

Exiting the European Union: Northern Ireland (27 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: May I, too, thank the Minister for all his hard work on behalf of Northern Ireland and Scotland? In recent weeks many discussions have taken place in Northern Ireland about electoral pacts and the bid to block Brexit, as if the decision is reversible. Does he agree that the efforts of all parties would be much better if they were put together in seeking to achieve the best possible outcome...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces Covenant Reference Group: Northern Ireland (27 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what effect the absence of a functioning Northern Ireland Executive has on the ability of the recent appointment of the Northern Ireland representative to the UK-wide Covenant Reference Group to carry out her role.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria: Armed Conflict (27 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps he is taking to help to prevent military action being taken against Syrian civilians by the Assad regime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Staffing (25 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: What assessment has been made of the high levels of turnover of prison staff and the negative consequences that that has on the management of prisons in Northern Ireland? I know that the matter is devolved. There are extremely low pay rates, low prospects and nothing to encourage people to work in the Prison Service.

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: May I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on his positive contribution to this debate? It was really what we needed, because the debate was getting a little bleak at times. I thank the Secretary of State for all the work he has put in on Northern Ireland, including going out and meeting people throughout the community and really listening to them. I want to echo his...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: Will the right hon. Gentleman give us his feelings about the discussions on the military covenant? I joined him on various occasions, and the party that we have all been talking about today that does not take part at least turned up once, but all they wanted was equality. To try to equalise their terrorists with our soldiers is an absolute disgrace.

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: Flexibility is a key point in running the budget. Civil servants run their departments well with their budget, but those little bits of flexibility matter when we as politicians are asked to help people. How does the Secretary of State envisage that working if we do not have a functioning Assembly? Will there be some mechanism so that people on the ground who have lost money or cannot do...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: The Leader of the House did not clarify the point about 2 May, so perhaps we could have some more information on that. Is he aware that the families of the victims of the Hyde Park bombings have been denied legal aid to fund their civil action against the chief suspect? Will he meet the Members and peers who support the victims’ campaign in order to consider the Government making...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality National Framework (20 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: I am very concerned about people who bought diesel cars thinking that they were the best way forward. Will the Secretary of State discuss this matter with the Transport Secretary, the Treasury and the devolved Administrations to ensure that these people are not penalised? We need to find a way forward that looks after them.

Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993: Ballydugan Four (19 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: The hon. Gentleman is making an excellent speech and some very good points. Does he share my view that we should also concentrate on mental health, think about how we can look after all those families—and everyone else—and find a solution on which we can all agree as soon as possible?

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Danny Kinahan: I am pleased to be able to speak in this debate, Mr Speaker. As we all know, Northern Ireland is in a brittle state at the moment. We have no Executive and no Government, and I wonder whether the Prime Minister fully considered what may happen to us. Before the recess, I was given an excellent answer as to our position in the Union, and I was very grateful for it, but I want to get three...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 29 March.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: I echo those sentiments and congratulate the Prime Minister on all the good work done last week and since that time. I also congratulate the Prime Minister and the Government on triggering article 50 today. I know that this is a momentous action for the whole of the United Kingdom. Although I, in common with the right hon. Lady, campaigned to stay in, we recognise that the people have spoken,...

Northern Ireland: Political Developments (28 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: It is good to hear the Secretary of State speaking of an inclusive devolved Government. However, since the St Andrews agreement we have had a bit for one side, a bit for the other, and it has been polarisation all the way through. We need to go back to the spirit of the Belfast agreement whereby people worked together to find the way forward on health and education. Will he look at a new way...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Yazidi Captives: Daesh (28 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: I congratulate the Minister on his actions last week. I have been lucky enough to visit northern Iraq and to meet Yazidis in some of the internally displaced persons camps. What resources and preparation are we putting in place to make sure that they and others can get back to their homes once we have defeated Daesh?

Badger Culling — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (27 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: I am sorry that I was not here at the beginning of the hon. Gentleman’s speech—there are certain things happening in Northern Ireland—but is he aware that we have a pilot scheme in Northern Ireland that is looking at capturing badgers, testing them, vaccinating them and then releasing or, if they have TB, euthanising them? We are looking at different methods. We are not just saying,...

Car Insurance: Young People — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (20 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that in Northern Ireland our premiums are 11% higher and that we do not have the same caps on injury claims? We need those to be introduced; we do not need Northern Ireland to be left behind so that we are outside the system. We also have the restricted plate: instead of an L-plate, an R-plate is put on so that the driver cannot go more than 45 mph. Despite putting...

Car Insurance: Young People — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (20 Mar 2017)

Danny Kinahan: Two issues arise from what I said earlier about the R-plate, which limits people to 45 mph for the first six months: first, the issue of not driving on motorways faster than 45 mph, which causes problems; and secondly, the fact that no one is taught how to drive at night. As the hon. Gentleman said, people need special training so they learn those things before they pass their test.
