Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Legislation: Non-fatal Disabilities (2 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: I am one of very many who are very thankful to the Westminster MPs, and to Stella Creasy in particular, for changing our laws. Instead of debating why Northern Ireland is still without regulations, we are debating laws that we cannot change. Reducing an abnormality clause to permit only fatal abnormalities can, as shown by the example in the Republic of Ireland, actually limit fatal diagnoses...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Legislation: Non-fatal Disabilities (2 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: — to make decisions about their bodies, lives and pregnancies? What happened to the slogan, "The North is next"? The Green Party will vote against the motion and the amendment. I urge other Members — Sinn Féin included — to do the same.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Green Growth Strategy and Delivery Framework (23 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: I am deeply concerned at the emphasis on growth in the strategy. Why must the economy always be at the centre of every discussion that we have about sustainability and why must relentless growth be the only lens through which we can view solutions? There must come a point when we seriously consider how much growth this planet can sustain. I agree with the Minister's opening sentence though:...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Condolences to the Family of Noah Donohoe (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: On behalf of the Green Party, I want to take this opportunity to pass our sincere condolences to Fiona, Noah's mum, his family and his circle of friends. It was incredibly tragic to wake up on Saturday to the tragic news that it was Noah's body that had been found. Not many people could even begin to imagine how this has affected his mum. As we just heard from the last Member who spoke, so...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Conferral of Functions on the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: I was elected in 2016 after the financial review happened and after the stories of the expenses scandals had broken. The public lost so much faith and trust in us. There is no doubt that there are problems with the independent financial review determination and how we can access and use our office cost expenditure. They are much bigger than putting a phone number on a sign. Ms Bunting was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Conferral of Functions on the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: Thank you. Those issues have been very well made in this Chamber, but what I am hearing is an awful lot about having no trust and no faith in an independent financial review panel because the only one that we have had to date got it so wrong. Sometimes, the House gets it wrong. Sometimes people in the House get it wrong, yet we always have another chance to get it right. That should never...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: COVID-19: Financial Recovery Strategy (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: 9. Ms Bailey asked the Minister of Finance to outline the Executive’s fiscal powers in relation to borrowing and revenue raising for any financial recovery strategy following the COVID-19 pandemic. (AQO 516/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: COVID-19: Financial Recovery Strategy (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his answer. I am keen to look at the underspend that has happened with COVID. The Minister told us in one of his previous answers, I think, that there was £52 million from the business support package scheme that was unspent. Is it possible to use that money and to redirect it to those businesses and people who have fallen between the cracks? For example, I spoke to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Environment Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: This Assembly is being asked to endorse the extension of these provisions to Northern Ireland, but these extensions are sub-power provisions. They are still under scrutiny in Westminster, yet we are being asked to rush them through, despite knowing that we are doing so without adequate scrutiny. Why are we being asked to endorse provisions that are not even law yet and that do not work for us...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Environment Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (30 Jun 2020)

Clare Bailey: Does the Minister agree that, although the House has always had the power to make changes, we have consistently seen environmental degradation and stubborn levels of pollution in Northern Ireland? While we can look to the EU, we have always had the ability; we have just chosen not to act on it.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Executive Committee (Functions) Bill: Accelerated Passage (6 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: This is an important Bill but I cannot support the granting of accelerated passage. I listened to the meeting when the Committee looked at the Bill last week but it spent only a few minutes on it. I do not believe that that represents either good governance or good scrutiny. Accelerated passage should not be used to rush the Bill through. Without proper scrutiny, we cannot understand its full...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — The Executive Office: Funeral of Bobby Storey (6 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: I, too, go back to the question for urgent oral answer. Do the First Minister and deputy First Minister believe that a commissioner for ministerial standards — for all Ministers — should be appointed as a matter of urgency in order to try to restore confidence with not only the public, but Members?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Sea Fish Industry (Coronavirus) (Fixed Costs) Scheme (Northern Ireland) 2020 (7 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: I, too, take the opportunity to recognise the devastating impact that COVID-19 has had on European and domestic fish markets, and therefore on the fishing industry in Northern Ireland. It is really good to see a package announced that so substantially addresses these issues. The package will enable fishing communities to survive and, hopefully, thrive after one of the biggest challenges that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Sea Fish Industry (Coronavirus) (Fixed Costs) Scheme (Northern Ireland) 2020 (7 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: The package for the sea fishing industry has set a precedent for supports to be made available that are not calculated based on the proportion of losses incurred. Given that the Department has been able to provide for the sea fishing industry with a lump-sum financial package, with the only criteria being the size of the boats, it is not unreasonable, then, to expect that similar standards...

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Executive Office: Commission on Flags, Identity, Culture and Tradition (7 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: 5. Ms Bailey asked the First Minister and deputy First Minister for an update on the work of the Commission on Flags, Identity, Culture and Tradition. (AQO 524/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Executive Office: Commission on Flags, Identity, Culture and Tradition (7 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: The commission was established in an attempt to move forward on issues that could not garner political support, at the Executive level at least. Will the Minister provide assurances that, when the costly and long-overdue report is finally received, the political will to implement its recommendations exists?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Climate Change and the Introduction of a Climate Change Act (21 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: I am happy to support the motion, which, my party and I believe, is long overdue. I thank my Committee colleague Mr McGuigan for moving it. I am pleased to see the acknowledgement of climate change as a human rights issue in the motion. For many, climate change may seem like a distant possibility — something far into the future — but that misconception is destructive. It is a falsehood,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Climate Change and the Introduction of a Climate Change Act (21 Jul 2020)

Clare Bailey: Certainly. A climate change Act is well overdue. We are on the brink of disaster. The predicted temperature rise of 4° will be catastrophic for Northern Ireland. We have been given a rare opportunity: let us not lose it.
