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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for her comprehensive answer; it is heartening to hear. The Minister will be very aware of the ongoing high risk to human health and the environmental damage that occurs the longer we do not tackle the problem. During the same debate in the Assembly, there was a commitment to consult fully the farming and agri-food sector. Has that happened, whether by you or someone in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 17) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 (14 Dec 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for giving way. Minister, there will be a mass shift of people trying to come home for Christmas from other countries. I know of people who will have to be tested clear in the country that they are in and get a certificate before being allowed to travel. Under the test, track and trace system here, will we ask for and look at those certificates on entry? Will we test...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 17) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 (14 Dec 2020)

Clare Bailey: I have to agree with some of the other Members. Here we are again, with the Assembly debating and voting on regulations after the period in which they applied. Ten months into this pandemic, we should not be in this position, fumbling our way from one set of restrictions to the next, with no overarching plan or strategy. We keep being told that we cannot have endless cycles of lockdown, yet...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 17) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 (14 Dec 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for his intervention. That is exactly what this House needs to hear. Tomorrow will be the last plenary day before the new year, and, yet again, we know nothing, so I would really welcome that from the Minister.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Macro Economic Outlook Micro Inquiry Special Report (8 Dec 2020)

Clare Bailey: I, too, welcome the motion. The Green Party believes that we can build back better and that the key to doing so is a climate change Act, that will transform and grow the Northern Ireland economy from being a fossil-fuel-driven economy to being a green-energy-driven economy. That, of course, involves talking about a green new deal and a just recovery. Climate action can be built into stimulus...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Macro Economic Outlook Micro Inquiry Special Report (8 Dec 2020)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for his intervention. He makes very valid points. We need to realise that the COVID crisis is the start of many more crises. We have a health pandemic leading to an economic crisis. We have taken our eye off the ball: we have a climate crisis, and we have not really begun to take on board the ramifications of that. With that in mind, the Bank of England is predicting that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Baby Scan Studios: Regulation (30 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: Is the Minister aware of any instances of women trying to access baby scans at NHS or other premises being blocked from doing so, so they have to go to a private provider? If that is the case, what can be done in such circumstances?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Santa Claus (30 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: Have you been good? [Laughter.]

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Health: Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic (23 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Minister, for giving way. If this is our common enemy, why do we not have a common response? Last week, I stood on the street where a friend's young daughter had taken her life. I watched the funeral cortege make its way to an open-air ceremony before an open-air burial that only 25 people were allowed to attend. The very next day, our First Minister gets into a taxi and, with...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Health: Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic (23 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: We need to have a good look at ourselves. The five-party Executive system is not designed to manage crisis; it was a means to create a sense of stability and bring an end to violence. It was never meant to be a long-term solution, and we have lost sight of that. We see each party playing to its base and doing duck and cover to blame somebody when delivery fails. At the outset, we wrote civic...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Committee for the Economy: Energy Strategy Report (23 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: The Green Party also very much welcomes the motion. We are encouraged by the vast range of views and positive suggestions given by organisations to the energy strategy micro inquiry. We would now like to see those carefully analysed in order to extract the enormous amount of value and level of expertise that has been given to us in the report. Whilst we are hearing the strong common theme of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Committee for the Economy: Energy Strategy Report (23 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: I accept those points, but I have had conversations with electric vehicle owners who have given them up because of bad infrastructure, so that issue needs to be tackled. The existing charging network is outdated, not reliable and needs to be urgently upgraded and extended. We suggest that the Minister for the Economy and the Minister for Infrastructure work together with the owners and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Committee for the Economy: Energy Strategy Report (23 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: Another one is connecting to the grid, and Mr Aiken made a point about costs. We support the motion and thank the Committee very much for bringing it to the House.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Basic Payment Scheme Simplifications and the Direction of Travel for Future Agricultural Policy in Northern Ireland, including Support Payments (17 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: OK. That was my question. Are particular efforts being made to really get stuck into addressing the disparity in farm poverty?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Basic Payment Scheme Simplifications and the Direction of Travel for Future Agricultural Policy in Northern Ireland, including Support Payments (17 Nov 2020)

Clare Bailey: On the issue of the quality of our local food, we should be cognisant of the fact that people will buy the food that they can afford. Given the economic ramifications of the crisis that we are in at the minute, we need to be careful that the potential for cheaper imports to be within the budget of people here does not allow our good quality to be the major export for other markets. That...
