Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Change Bill: Second Stage (10 May 2021)

Clare Bailey: Does the Member realise that his party's manifesto commits to net zero by 2035, which is much faster and a much more compressed time frame?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Change Bill: Second Stage (10 May 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for his intervention. It is not envisaged in the Bill that the climate commissioner will have any enforcement powers; it is simply a monitoring and reporting function to assess how the legislation is progressing. I have lost my place, Mr Speaker, so I will start again on clause 11. Clause 11 relates to the alteration of climate action plans following the climate...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Change Bill: Second Stage (10 May 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his comments. I would be a bit surprised if he were not aware that a private Member's Bill is not mandated to go out to public consultation. There will be evidence sessions on the Bill with all stakeholders at Committee Stage, if it passes Second Stage today. Clause 12 provides a duty that there must be no regression from the environmental standards that were in place...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Change Bill: Second Stage (10 May 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for his intervention. I am certainly not a climate denier or a climate sceptic. I will act on all the work that comes from international bodies and from states across the world in trying to deal with the issue. Even in Northern Ireland, we are seeing the impacts of it, particularly in our weather patterns. I do not think that any of that should be ignored. The legislation...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Change Bill: Second Stage (10 May 2021)

Clare Bailey: Before I begin, I will also take this opportunity to wish Mr Aiken good luck. I am delighted that he is remaining as an MLA because he is always a very positive person to work with. I wish him well. The Bill sets a framework for climate change adaptation and mitigation in Northern Ireland. Since 2008, climate change legislation has been slowly but steadily emerging around the world. Although...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Wildfire in the Mourne Mountains (26 Apr 2021)

Clare Bailey: I am from a family of firefighters, and I have the utmost respect for the work and dedication of the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and, indeed, of all our emergency services, particularly when they face such personal risk. I, too, take the opportunity to thank each and every one of them for their efforts over the weekend. In the past week alone, we have seen serious fires on Cave...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Health: Abortion Services (22 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for making himself available today. We know that women trying to access services are being forced to travel during the pandemic and that those who can access the very limited services here run a gauntlet of protests — in some cases by people who are travelling for their right to protest during the pandemic. In some of those cases, we have seen protesters entering health...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Change Bill: First Stage (22 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I beg to introduce the Climate Change Bill [NIA19/17-22], which is a Bill to enable the mitigation of the impact of climate change in Northern Ireland; establish a legally binding net-zero carbon target for Northern Ireland; provide for the establishment and powers of the Northern Ireland Climate Commissioner and Northern Ireland Climate Office; guarantee existing environmental and climate...

Clare Bailey: — a sense of community. I do not think that the Speaker will let me.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Post-primary Education Provision in South Belfast (16 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I am delighted that the Minister has begun the appointment process for members of the panel of the independent review of education. I look forward to their work, which is long overdue. Across the school estate, we have in the region of 50,000 empty seats. We spend £95 million a year on the duplication of services. Recently, the Integrated Education Fund estimated that £1 million had been...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Republic of Ireland: Health MOU (16 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: T1. Ms Bailey asked the Minister of Health what areas of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Republic of Ireland will be reviewed and how that will proceed, given that, in response to a question from Mr Allister yesterday, he stated that, on finding out about the Republic of Ireland’s issues with the AstraZeneca vaccine, he asked the Chief Medical Officer to review the terms of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Republic of Ireland: Health MOU (16 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I see that there is a report out today from an EU committee saying that there is no evidence of the AstraZeneca vaccine having negative impacts. Have you sought any assurances or, more importantly, have you been given any assurances from your counterpart in the South that they can go ahead and use the vaccine again?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill: Second Stage (15 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I declare an interest as a board member of Informing Choices NI, formerly the Family Planning Association in Northern Ireland. I also speak as a mother who supports my right to choose how many children to have, when to have them and whether I want to have them at all. I support my right to choose to continue with a pregnancy or to terminate it. I support the right of any woman and all women...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Health: Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaccine: Roll-out (15 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for coming here today. Like Mr Gildernew, I fall into the bracket and welcome making the phone call to get my vaccination. If they offer me the AstraZeneca one, I will gladly and happily take it, as others in my family have done. Minister, if people are uncomfortable about taking that vaccine when they go for their vaccination, will they be able to request a different vaccine?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Death of Sarah Everard (15 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I, too, extend my sympathies to the family of Sarah Everard and to the families of the five women in Northern Ireland who, we know, have been murdered in their own homes since lockdown began. Last Monday was International Women's Day. Yesterday was Mothering Sunday. The images being beamed across the world and across social media really show how we as a society respect and value women....
