Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Public Inquiry on the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (24 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I thank the Minister for his answers so far and for the announcement of the inquiry. In common with other Opposition parties, we have been calling for a long number of weeks for an inquiry under the 2005 Act. I am glad of the acknowledgement of that. Better late than never, although it is a regret that people are going to the polls without at least some of the facts being in the public...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: RHI Scheme Recipients (24 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: T3. Ms Hanna asked the Minister for the Economy what contingency or plan B, which would allow for transparency, his Department had in place in the event of a ruling against publishing the RHI names. (AQT 698/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: RHI Scheme Recipients (24 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: My question was about a contingency or plan B, as the challenge was entirely foreseeable. Has the Minister given any thought to publishing an anonymised list? Such a list could contain some geographical detail, the date, the output and the payment, so that we can get a sense of the levels of applicants that are credible and not credible.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Good Friday Agreement Values and Principles (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: Thank you, Madam Principal Deputy Speaker. Like others, I wish you well in life after this Assembly, and I hope that we will not all join you in life after this Assembly in the next couple of months. I thank all who participated in the debate, which has been an important review of the principles. As Members have said, it is a bit sad perhaps that we are restating and discussing those...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Good Friday Agreement Values and Principles (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I do agree; I was going to come to that. Stephen Farry raised a number of points about the ugly scaffolding. We have said that there can and should be an evolution of that. I think that John McCallister did us all a service when he put some of those mechanisms on the table. We all engaged with that in good faith. It is something that can be revisited. However, I have to agree with Alex...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Good Friday Agreement Values and Principles (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: In the context of the motion's being about the talks that will follow the election, and to prevent there being a second election simply because if this one will not solve anything, another one certainly will not, we do not feel that there is a window of opportunity. We are very happy to come to back to it, hopefully, in these refreshed institutions. I just want to pick up on another few...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Good Friday Agreement Values and Principles (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I speak for the SDLP only. I agree: I do not feel that anybody who is elected here to any of the 18 Westminster seats is a better Irishman than Parnell, Davitt or many other Irishmen who went and represented at Westminster. Wherever our future is being discussed, the SDLP will be there to deliver on our pledges. As I said, Stephen Farry raised the issue of ugly scaffolding. We are up for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Investing in the Teaching Workforce: Update (23 Jan 2017)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I thank all those who have spoken. Like others, I attended the launch of the report on Friday and have spent some time since reading it. I think that, for everybody there, it was a very difficult few hours — even for those of us who did not live through those experiences. It has to be said how much the strength, dignity and determination of the campaigners came through on Friday, as it...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I agree with that, and I agree, of course, that —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: — it is so important we let the people who have put all those qualities into the public discourse know they have been validated and that the redress they are entitled to is delivered to them. They were children who were entrusted into the care of the state and deprived of that very fundamental human need for love, and they suffered the systematic sexual, physical and psychological abuse...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: Everybody in the Chamber has to finish the job and deliver the redress and support that Sir Anthony Hart made clear they are entitled to.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Failure of the Executive (17 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I thank all Members who contributed to the debate, which has been a retelling of the very sad life story of this failed Government. Mike Nesbitt opened the debate with a lengthy blooper reel of some of the failings of the DUP and Sinn Féin over the last decade. He spoke about the survivors of institutional abuse — they are here today — and that issue has a lot of resonance with me. It...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Drug Misuse: South Belfast (17 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: 4. Ms Hanna asked the Minister of Justice what she is doing to address drug misuse in South Belfast. (AQO 921/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Drug Misuse: South Belfast (17 Jan 2017)

Claire Hanna: I thank the Minister for her answer. Some Members might be aware of a persistent supply of drugs problem in the Lagan Meadows area in Stranmillis, which it is understood might have been displaced from another park. This is a well-used beauty spot, but drug-related paraphernalia and the appearance of crime are putting people off. Young people have been gathering there for a different...
