Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Flooding: Compensation (3 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: It is good to hear that the Minister is signalling his willingness to stick to ministerial direction. Will he be just as keen to stick to the direction from the House? I think of his decision last week not to call an inquiry into the Mobuoy waste dump despite unanimous support from all in the House to do so.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Universal Credit: Waiting Times (3 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: It is great to hear the Minister saying that she will make announcements in the near future about any potential changes that she can make to the awful process that we now have. She said that an announcement will be forthcoming, but does she have powers to make changes, for example, for people who make claims for universal credit and are suffering life-limiting or terminal diagnoses, such as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Emergency (3 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: First, I thank the honourable Member Caoimhe Archibald and her party, Sinn Féin, for their willingness to enage in this debate and to work collaboratively and in a cross-party way on the amendment and throughout the debate. On a personal note, it is a bit bittersweet to watch the growing understanding across our public decision-making bodies and also within our political leadership, knowing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Emergency (3 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: It is a very valid point. I do not think that it is the only thing that we need to do, but it is very urgent. I think that the moratorium on fracking in Northern Ireland still stands, but I am willing to be corrected if I need to be. We want to see the Executive bring forward a climate Act, environmental targets with strong legal underpinnings and an independent environmental protection...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: FTC Underspend (10 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: 5. Ms Bailey asked the Minister of Finance, given that the Executive had to return £150 million of financial transactions capital (FTC) DEL to HM Treasury, to outline his plans to ensure that ring-fenced funding will not go unallocated. (AQO 74/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: FTC Underspend (10 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: Thank you very much for your answer, Minister. I was glad to hear you mention the co-ownership scheme in particular. Given the level of need for all social housing providers and those working within urban regeneration, does he feel that the Northern Ireland Investment Fund has proved beneficial in relieving any pressures in those sectors?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Attorney General: Recruitment Plans (17 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: 5. Ms Bailey asked the First Minister and deputy First Minister, given that the current tenure of the Attorney General is due to expire in June 2020, what plans are in place to fill this post. (AQO 114/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Attorney General: Recruitment Plans (17 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: To follow on, I would like to ask the question that has been unanswered so far by the First Minister and deputy First Minister: do they have any concerns about potential conflicts of interest in relation to the Attorney General's office, given his recent appointment as a temporary deputy High Court judge?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Landfill Waste (17 Feb 2020)

Clare Bailey: It is great to hear about all the initiatives and how recycling rates have grown. Obviously, incinerators need waste — they need to be fed on waste — but we also have to meet waste reduction targets. Rather than just recycling or circular economies, will the Minister give us more detail on what we are doing to reduce our waste in Northern Ireland?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Inter-ministerial Group for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (2 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: It was good to hear the Minister say that if the EU was good to its word, it would act in the best interests of the people of Northern Ireland. Does he agree, then, that if the Conservative Government were good to their word, they would uphold the international treaty that they negotiated and signed off rather than threaten to break it? Can I also ask the Minister whether he has sought...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Afforestation Programme (2 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his statement. It is welcome to see him move so swiftly to take action on reforestation across Northern Ireland. As somebody who lives on the boundary of Belvoir Park forest and who spent the weekend in Cregagh Glen, I have to say that the work done by many agencies to look after our spaces is to be commended. It was great to hear that you could plant another million...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Areas of Natural Constraint (3 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: I support the motion, which: "calls on the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to use the powers contained within schedule 6 to the Agriculture Bill (HC Bill 7) to bring forward a new areas of natural constraint scheme." It is pretty basic stuff, really. The Agriculture Bill that is working its way through Westminster will set the post-Brexit agenda for the UK agri-sector...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Areas of Natural Constraint (3 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for her intervention, and she raises important points. Change is fluid at the minute, and everything should be continually reviewed. We are facing phenomenal change in the face of Brexit, and we need to put plans in place. The Green Party aims to further the social, environment and economic well-being of those involved in our agri-sector. We have an opportunity to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Abortion Services: Anti-harassment Measures (3 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: T5. Ms Bailey asked the Minister of Justice, in light of the UN CEDAW report that recommended that women be protected from harassment by anti-abortion protesters by investigating complaints and prosecuting and punishing the perpetrators, and the fact that the recent NIO consultation on abortion regulations stated that new powers may be required in Northern Ireland to allow for the proactive...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Abortion Services: Anti-harassment Measures (3 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for her answer. Can she let us know how many reports of harassment and intimidation by anti-abortion protesters have been received to date? What are the numbers of subsequent investigations and prosecutions?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Slurry Spreading: Regulations (3 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: It is good to hear the Minister talk about the weather. Farming is dictated by the seasons. Climate change is messing with weather patterns, and farmers are struggling with that. Will you be looking at slurry spreading in terms of climate change?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Apprenticeships (9 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: Will the Minister let us know what the balance is between available apprenticeships for those educated to degree level and those not educated to degree level? Where can we get information on all available apprenticeship courses? Is that published by the Department?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Education: Coronavirus Advice to Schools (9 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his update on the ongoing work with his UK counterparts. Can he give us an update on what work he is doing with his counterparts across this island, given that our schoolchildren will be moving around this land mass rather than travelling abroad?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Response to the Emergence of Coronavirus (9 Mar 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for the statement. It is greatly appreciated, and I put on record my respect and admiration for all healthcare workers, who are taking on extra duties. They must be commended given that we all know that they are working in extremely stressed and under-resourced circumstances. I am interested to hear the Minister's views on the fact that we are hearing reports that Dublin...
