Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flags: South Belfast (27 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: Thanks for that. I think that is just an —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flags: South Belfast (27 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: It is just another example of where this debate is going and how seriously the issue might be taken. I am recently elected, for the first time, in South Belfast, but, for years, I have been contacted by residents there with their concerns over flag-flying. There is a range of concerns. Some people are concerned that the flags are there in the first place. Some people are concerned that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flags: South Belfast (27 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: Thank you. The flying of flags in Northern Ireland is not something that I see as a celebration of identity; it is something that I see as a root cause of a crisis of identity. When people are not confident and not feeling secure, that will work its way outwards. When Christopher Stalford was speaking, he challenged Claire Hanna and asked her when so many flags went up. Well, the flags went...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Relationship and Sexuality Education (27 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: T5. Ms Bailey asked the Minister of Education for his assessment of whether a consistent approach to the teaching of relationships and sexuality education (RSE) in all our schools would help to reduce educational inequalities. (AQT 240/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Relationship and Sexuality Education (27 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Speaker. Thank you for your answer, Minister. That being the case, can you let us know how the Department evaluates the education that happens in our schools?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: State Pension: Impact of Changes on Women (26 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Principal Deputy Speaker. I will keep it brief. I have heard most Members state that they understand exactly the implications and impacts that this issue is having on women. Naomi Long said that our Executive have no control over these changes, but having the debate in the House can highlight the fact that we as a society need to embed urgently a gendered impact study on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: State Pension: Impact of Changes on Women (26 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for giving way. Would you recognise, if it was a European-driven policy, that many other European countries have removed a lot of the economic barriers for women — something that the UK, particularly Northern Ireland, has failed to do? Targeting them at the end of their working life, rather than removing barriers during their working life, is still a failure.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Domestic Violence: Court Listings (20 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: A recent briefing paper given to me by the Assembly's research team shows that, although the total number of homicides in Northern Ireland has fallen over the past few years, those with a domestic abuse motivation have remained relatively constant, to the point that, whereas in 2008 16·7% of homicide cases were female victims, in 2014 that proportion had risen to just over 41%. It is good...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Domestic Violence: Court Listings (20 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: — but what other initiatives will she be addressing as a matter of absolute urgency for domestic violence victims?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Stalking (12 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: Will the Minister give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Stalking (12 Sep 2016)

Clare Bailey: It is great to hear, Minister, that you are touching base with all the agencies. Are you doing any work with housing providers on this issue? As far as I am aware, there is absolutely no onus on housing providers to move victims who are being terrorised in their own homes, although we have provision for harassment and intimidation. Our cultural understanding really limits that to issues of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Landlord Registration Scheme (20 Jun 2016)

Clare Bailey: For most of my life, I have lived as a tenant in the private rented sector. I want to make sure that the House is aware that regulation is so badly needed in that sector. There is no standard for tenants: the heating, insulation, conditions and decor that come with a house is very haphazard. I have lived with my two children as a single mother — we have heard an example given today —...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Jo Cox MP (20 Jun 2016)

Clare Bailey: Like others in the Chamber, I did not have the privilege of knowing Jo Cox, but I have listened over the past few days and heard about her legacy and the work she carried out. I feel inspired that people such as Jo Cox put themselves forward for public life and that they can come forward and see value in every human being. I extend the deepest condolences of the Green Party to Jo's family,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Programme for Government Framework 2016-2021 (6 Jun 2016)

Clare Bailey: Unlike many of my new colleagues in the Assembly, I will not take the opportunity today to make my maiden speech. I will do that another time. I will just make my comments brief. Throughout the document, there is much mention of improving health, housing, respect, poverty, economic inequality and education. It mentions various targeted demographics, such as children, the disabled and...
