Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Claire Hanna: South Belfast is a relatively prosperous constituency. It is one of those that would be described as “leafy” in political commentary, along with the presumptions and generalisations that mask the economic diversity and substantial need that exist in the community I represent. It includes the highest levels of universal credit claimant rises in Northern Ireland throughout the pandemic, and...

Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: I was interested to hear the Secretary of State say that he took heed of a party to the agreement warning of disruption. I hope that he will soon begin to listen to other parties to the agreement, as well as to businesses in Northern Ireland. A recent Northern Ireland business survey found that two thirds of companies would like to take advantage of the opportunities of the protocol. Invest...

Northern Ireland: Legacy Issues (21 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: No one wants to move forward more than victims and survivors, but they cannot do that until killers allow them to by telling the truth. However, these proposals protect those vested interests and not victims’ interests. Fresh forensic evidence has just been found in the investigation into the IRA murder of Tom Oliver, giving a lie to the claim that investigations cannot be advanced. For...

Northern Ireland Protocol (15 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: After all these months, it is hard to know what is left to say on the protocol. It was nobody’s first choice. It was the last thing left on the table after a series of choices made by the UK Government based on votes made by the Conservative Party and the DUP. Having a very hard Brexit and frictionless trade are regrettably not both possible, and they never have been, and it is dishonest...

EU Settlement Scheme (7 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: Like other Northern Irish MPs, I have spent a lot of time in the Chamber, in Select Committee meetings and in the media talking about the free movement of goods and about people’s emotions and identity in the context of Northern Ireland. However, there has been much less discussion of the plight and the rights of EU nationals who have been living, working and contributing in our community....

Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill: New Clause 2 - Appointment of First Minister and Deputy First Minister (6 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: The previous amendments to the Bill tabled by SDLP Members were probably probing amendments, but we believe that new clause 3 is fundamental and fairly existential for the Assembly. It is worth saying that for the last 20 years the SDLP has advocated adherence to the Good Friday agreement and the mechanisms and safeguards designed in good faith during that process. The reason why we have...

Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill: Clause 5 - Petitions of concern (6 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: I acknowledge that they exist, but they are not enacted and, when I questioned the Speaker at the evidence session last week, it was not clear why they have not been established. While I understand where the hon. Member for Belfast East is coming from, there is a creeping narrative that the attempt to thwart the vetoholic nature of some Ministers is somehow pulling up a ladder as demographic...

Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill: Clause 4 - Ministerial Code of Conduct (6 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: I beg to move amendment 15, in clause 4, page 6, line 11, at end insert— “(3) If an investigation by the Commissioner for Standards finds that a Minister has breached the Ministerial Code of Conduct by engaging in harassment, bullying or inappropriate or discriminatory behaviour, then the Minister shall be deemed to have resigned their ministerial post at midnight on the day of the...

Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill: Clause 4 - Ministerial Code of Conduct (6 Jul 2021)

Claire Hanna: Certainly, Mr Stringer. In that case, the Minister would be deemed to have resigned. Amendment 16 would ensure that Ministers co-operated with any investigation and gave due regard to existing standards, including reports from the Commissioner for Standards. The Minister has made an argument, about legislating for the ministerial code of conduct within the Assembly, that I think has the broad...
