Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Childcare (14 Sep 2015)

Claire Hanna: Childcare and its impact on social and economic well-being, gender equality and childhood development is exactly the sort of thing that the Assembly should be discussing, and I will come back to that in a moment. This is my maiden speech, and, last week, I thought that I might not be making it. However, as a member of the SDLP for 15 years and a mum of two young children, I thought that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Waiting Lists Crisis (15 Sep 2015)

Claire Hanna: I also welcome the opportunity to contribute to the debate on such an important issue. I rise in support of the amendment and the substantive motion. It is unacceptable that 373,000 people are waiting for a first outpatient appointment, a diagnostic test or an inpatient treatment at some of Northern Ireland's hospitals. My colleague has outlined that that includes over 212,000 patients who...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Syrian Humanitarian Crisis (22 Sep 2015)

Claire Hanna: I commend the Members for tabling the motion. It is vital that the Assembly continues to give voice to the solidarity, the very clear solidarity, of people here with the millions who are fleeing conflict in Syria and elsewhere. It is also appropriate that we look at the practical support that we can offer. Members have outlined some of the context of the crisis that has seen several hundred...

(AQT 2857/11-16)

Does he agree that the rule of law should prevail and that those flags should be removed?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Autism (6 Oct 2015)

Claire Hanna: I also welcome the opportunity to speak on the motion, and I commend my colleague Dominic Bradley, in particular, for his efforts, through the all-party group on autism and outside it, in promoting awareness of this topic. The fruit of his labour was the Autism Act (Northern Ireland) 2011, which came through the Assembly and brought together all of the most progressive elements of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Learning: Higher Education: Sustainable Funding (12 Oct 2015)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture and Rural Development: Flood Alleviation Schemes (12 Oct 2015)

Claire Hanna: The Minister is aware of the predicament of many householders, particularly in my constituency of South Belfast, who live under constant threat of flooding. Can she give an update on the household protection scheme, and give some assurance to people that they might still be eligible for that scheme, even if an alleviation scheme is planned for their area? In many cases, alleviation schemes...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Marriage Equality (2 Nov 2015)

Claire Hanna: I support the motion and those who will be most affected by the outcome. Like many people, I watched the referendum in the South just before the summer. I actually campaigned in it, and, I have to say, as someone who has been involved in elections for going on for 15 years, that I do not remember one being as life-affirming and positive since the referendum that we had here in 1998. It was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Marriage Equality (2 Nov 2015)

Claire Hanna: I think that it is. Polling shows that over two thirds of people support marriage equality, with a smaller number who have not made up their mind but are not opposed yet. The separate but equal argument is that people should be happy with civil partnership. I ask Members who are married whether they would be happy to downgrade their marriage to a civil partnership if they think that it is...
