Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Promoting a Gender-sensitive Assembly (8 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I beg to move That this Assembly, on International Women’s Day, notes recommendation 12 of the Assembly and Executive Review Committee's 'Report on Women in Politics and the Northern Ireland Assembly', which proposed that the Assembly should consider adopting measures to create a gender-sensitive Assembly; and endorses the recommendations in the gender-sensitive Assembly action plan as put...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Promoting a Gender-sensitive Assembly (8 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: Happy International Women's Day to everyone in the Chamber. This is the first time that there have been predominantly females in the Chamber, and that is good to see. Thanks to Trevor and Mike — yes, you get a special mention. I move the motion as the current chair of the Northern Ireland Assembly Women's Caucus. Members will be aware that the 2015 'Report on Women in Politics and the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Students: COVID-19 Restrictions (8 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: T3. Ms Bailey asked the First Minister and deputy First Minister whether the First Minister will outline the specific, detailed and unambiguous COVID-19 regulations that will apply to students while they are residing at a term-time address, bubbling and travelling in the lead up to St Patrick's Day and the Easter period. (AQT 1073/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Students: COVID-19 Restrictions (8 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for her answer. I asked a question about the PSNI response in the Holylands area last week, where £11,000 of COVID fines were handed out. There is a hamster wheel that goes on every year; I was dealing with that issue long before I was elected. The problems in the Holylands extend beyond the COVID pandemic. I am aware that the Executive set up a task force to deal with...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Withdrawal Agreement Grace Periods (8 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: Here we go, yet again, discussing the impact of Brexit when many of us knew — all of us knew — that it would bring no benefits and certainly no settlement for Northern Ireland. When we hear that businesses are adversely impacted by the protocol, the question needs to be asked. Businesses were going to be impacted no matter what the arrangement. This is not about where the border is if you...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Withdrawal Agreement Grace Periods (8 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: No, I will not. Any solution for issues arising because of the protocol need to be sorted out with the Joint Committee. Nobody in the House should be fooled that the EU or the United Kingdom Government are looking for the best outcome for Northern Ireland when they are rolling out the programme for Brexit. That is not the reality, because, every which way, Northern Ireland is set to be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (2 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you for giving way. Minister, I made points about where money could be reallocated and saved in order to spend on priority needs. Continuing with the current system of duplication of services and silo working is not effective and is not fiscally responsible, and I was using those examples to try to encourage Executive Ministers to work better together to prioritise and reallocate our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (2 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I welcome the opportunity to speak today on another Budget and another accelerated passage. I will do my bit to save Mr Catney from breaking his Lent alcohol fast. I do not wish to repeat much of what has been raised by Members during the debate today, but I have to admit that, at this stage, I am really glad that I do not share your commitment, Mr Catney. We have heard Committee responses to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Port Inspection Facilities (1 Mar 2021)

Clare Bailey: I want to go back to a quote from the First Minister, just a few weeks ago, on 'The Andrew Marr Show', when she described Brexit with the protocol in place as: "a gateway of opportunity for the whole of the UK and for Northern Ireland". What has changed in those few short weeks that has lead the Minister to take such action? It is not Brexit or the protocol. Does the Minister believe that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The draft Direct Payments to Farmers (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021 (22 Feb 2021)

Clare Bailey: We have been repeatedly assured that the SRs are mainly technical amendments to how direct payments were previously administered. For that reason, we will be supporting them today. The Green Party broadly welcomes the simplifications, because we welcome the ability for payments to continue into 2021, thus providing that limited certainty for farmers. It is important that minor simplifications...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Deposit Return Scheme (8 Feb 2021)

Clare Bailey: My question was just answered, Mr Principal Deputy Speaker. Thank you very much.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Fish: UK Stocks (8 Feb 2021)

Clare Bailey: At a recent Committee meeting, we were informed that up to 80% of baby eels from the lough are removed for stocking eel fishery farming. What are the Minister and the Department's thoughts on that decline of 80%, and what are we doing to address that? Is it sustainable?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Checks at Ports (2 Feb 2021)

Clare Bailey: I, too, welcome the Minister to his new post. I also look forward to working with him and maybe even seeing him at Committee. That would be great. In light of the fact that Northern Ireland has a number of very serious ongoing cases of avian flu and that that can have dire consequences, I can only imagine how busy your first day has been, but have you met port inspectors today? If so, what is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Condemnation of Threats to Workers at Border Control Posts (2 Feb 2021)

Clare Bailey: I also wish Edwin Poots well. I am pretty confident of his speedy recovery. I thank Stewart Dickson for bringing this Matter of the Day. It is 2021, and it is absolutely shameful that, in Northern Ireland, people are being stopped from going to their work. No one should be put in that position. We will, of course, await the PSNI's assessment of the situation. It is equally shameful that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Historical Mother-and-baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries (26 Jan 2021)

Clare Bailey: I, too, welcome the long-awaited report. It is an important day for victims and survivors. Not only does it mark the end of one process, it begins the next steps of further processes. I have listened to the comments from the Floor. While the report highlights the culture of misogyny that we all lived under as a society, we should not fool ourselves that it is something in the distant past. It...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Adverse Impact of the Pandemic on Access to Special Educational Needs Support for Vulnerable Children (26 Jan 2021)

Clare Bailey: I, too, welcome the debate and thank the Education Committee for tabling the motion, which the Green Party fully supports. I would be surprised if any MLA has not been contacted by schools, staff, parents or our third sector during the 10-month lockdown to highlight the specific problems and impacts for all involved, many of which have been mentioned in the debate. We really need to remind...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Adverse Impact of the Pandemic on Access to Special Educational Needs Support for Vulnerable Children (26 Jan 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for his intervention. Not just I but the whole sector would absolutely agree with that. It has been waiting and been under pressure for long enough. Something that really struck me during my time at Glenveagh was that the school wanted to turn part of the outside space that they have into a memorial garden, because it is not uncommon for a lot of the children to die while...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council: Agriculture (19 Jan 2021)

Clare Bailey: Minister, your statement refers to close cooperation: "on significant environmental issues, as they relate to the implementation of future agriculture policy." We know already that, under current policy, Northern Ireland fails to meet its obligations under the habitats directive. I am starting to hear reports of animal waste now being moved across the border in what are suspected to be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Belfast Multicultural Association (18 Jan 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you Gerry for bringing the Matter of the Day to the House. The Green Party also condemns that arson attack and more so the people who carried it out. I want to put on record that, in the light of that attack, the community response to help BMCA after that despicable hate crime against it has been quite phenomenal. We should not lose sight of that, because that is the core of who we are...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Ammonia Emissions (15 Dec 2020)

Clare Bailey: 3. Ms Bailey asked the Minister for Infrastructure what discussions she has had with the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in relation to a review of the planning application process to ensure planners have appropriate guidance on ammonia, including being led by science and data to mitigate ammonia emissions. (AQO 1377/17-22)
