Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. He is absolutely right. There are caveats with those rights, but those caveats need to be prescribed by law. They are not, currently, but that is what the Bill would do. Rather than wiping out protest, as some think that it would do, the Bill prescribes in law and under human rights articles the balance of those competing rights. I return to the Ealing case, in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. They are all deemed to be insufficient and inoperable in these circumstances, which is exactly why the behaviours and the distress happen. The health and social care trusts told the Committee that that is why they have had to, I think, put strengthened windows in some of their premises and move services to other places. Their staff have had to change their...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. Those engaging in the behaviour that we are trying to regulate are causing real harm and traumatising women, pregnant people, staff and the wider public. The behaviour is not low-level. Those people are not there to help or support. They are there to bully, harass and intimidate someone away from accessing healthcare safely and in confidence. The fact that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: Thank you to everyone who has spoken so far. As expected, some Members have taken the opportunity to use this debate to rehash views on abortion rather than to discuss what is happening on our streets outside clinics and charities. What is happening is a deliberate campaign of harassment and intimidation against women who are seeking to access services. That would not be tolerated in access...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for giving way. On her point that there has not been enough time, work on the Bill began in this institution in 2016. We had three years with no Assembly, and it was finally introduced in September last year. I note that the Member's party colleague introduced a Bill on 5 July, just before recess: this Bill was introduced just after recess. Although her colleague's Bill has...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Consideration Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for giving way. In clause 4(b), the person who is "accompanying a person described in paragraph (a), at the invitation of that person" is also a protected person: in this case, the mother whom you are speaking of.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (28 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Minister. Do you recognise that, in Northern Ireland, we produce higher emissions per head than China?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (28 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Thanks, Minister. You can berate me all you want about what, you think, I think, but let us not forget that we do not even have a waste strategy. That is something that you can bring forward and it is within your Department's remit, but you have failed to do so.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (28 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Since the introduction of the first Climate Change Bill and a net zero ambition, it has become clear that tasking the very Ministry that has responsibility for our biggest emitting industry to bring forward a climate Bill was never going to work. We need to be really honest and speak to climate change as being the real challenge rather than targets being a significant challenge for some,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (28 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. My opposition is in the context of the amendment paving the way for split targets, a point that I already addressed. All the parties that supported and voted for net zero emissions really need to think about that. The IPCC released its latest report just a few short hours ago at 11.00 am. It is its bleakest report to date. Last year, it told us that humanity was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Blue-carbon Habitats: Action Plan (28 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his statement. However, I point out that there is a widespread lack of faith that the delivery of these actions will be carried out in a timely manner. Following on from the previous question, some blue-carbon habitats are protected by current legislation, based on the habitats' contributions to our biodiversity, but there are opportunities for blue-carbon habitats...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The draft Environment (2021 Act) (Commencement and Saving Provision) Order (Northern Ireland) 2022 (22 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I welcome the Minister's tabling the motion, because it allows us to speak to the commencement and saving provision order. With some reservations, the Green Party welcomes the Northern Ireland provisions of the UK Environment Act coming into operation. We welcome in particular the oversight of the Office for Environmental Protection, as, since Brexit, Northern Ireland has been left without...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: RHI Scheme: Closure (22 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: T1. Ms Bailey asked the Minister for the Economy, albeit it was good to hear him say, about the energy strategy, that he does not want to produce a report only to leave it sitting on a shelf, given that it has been well over two years since the Executive parties agreed to close the renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme as part of the New Decade, New Approach agreement, has that been shelved,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: RHI Scheme: Closure (22 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Will the Minister give an indication as to the response to that consultation and the ministerial decision that he would like to take, if he cannot get it at Executive level?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Environment Fund 2022-23 (22 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Of course, any funding announcement for environmental improvement has to be welcomed, given the absolute dire state that we are in. There is £2·9 million for community groups and councils, and that goes along with the £8 million a year from green growth for environmental restoration, which has to cover forestry and peatlands. It is tinkering around the edges of environmentalism and climate...
