Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Christopher Stalford MLA (21 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I, too, associate myself with a lot of the comments that have been made by Members about Christopher's professionalism, capability and absolute natural talent for the role that he performed and the public service that he gave. On behalf of the Green Party, I especially extend my deepest condolences to Christopher's wife, Laura, his four children and his mummy, all of whom he adored and loved...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Police Ombudsman's Report (8 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: It has been said that everybody deserves justice. It is a sad day when we still have to step up in the Chamber and declare that we support law and order and when, in looking at and addressing such reports, we have to caveat them with political point-scoring. Lives were lost. People died. Other lives were damaged. Families were broken. A community was terrorised. When we know that wrong was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: My goodness. From listening to the Minister rhyme off the list of support and then call for Northern Ireland to do better, one would nearly think that it is the whole world against the DUP. I thank Mr Beggs for raising the issue of extending any funds in a just transition fund for agriculture to farmers in an effort to reduce all greenhouse gases, not just carbon, and I see no reason why that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Read Hansard then. I will repeat, for the Minister's benefit, what I actually said about reduction numbers: "Over the past few months, I have been in touch with many representatives of the agriculture sector and heard a wide variety of views. In the past week especially, I have heard from farmers who have been told that the net zero vote will result in overnight reductions in herd numbers of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: No, thanks. I need to address claims that the protections being discussed today are no good, that had we set a different target last week we would not need them and that the 82% is, in and of itself, a just transition. We do not get to decide what a just transition is, because it is led by people, in collaboration with communities, and people overwhelmingly want strong climate action. Maybe...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for that timely intervention, given that we are talking about energy. The UK's energy price cap is set to rise by 54% this year, for example. Meanwhile, the French Government have introduced measures to limit bill increases to 4% this year. I look forward to working with you in the future in order to make sure that we follow new systems and make decisions that protect our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. No is the quick answer to that one. Over the past few months, I have been in touch with many representatives of the agriculture sector and heard a wide variety of views. In the past week especially, I have heard from farmers who have been told that the net zero vote will result in overnight reductions in herd numbers of up to 80%. It is untrue, of course, but that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I beg to move amendment No 44: After clause 16 insert— “Just Transition Fund for Agriculture   16C. The Department must establish a scheme known as the ‘Just Transition Fund for Agriculture’ to provide financial assistance and advice to the agricultural sector to deliver its contribution under proposals and policies for the purposes of section 16.” The following amendments...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: In the process of creating our own overdue, obviously, and urgently needed climate legislation, just transition as a concept was relatively unknown or engaged with. I doubt that many in the House would have even thought it possible to embed it in legislation. I am proud that the Green Party has pushed this to the fore via the cross-party private Member's Bill (PMB), and credit should be given...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Checks at Sea Ports (7 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: By taking the action again, the Minister must have thought that the first time was so good that he needed to do it twice. Minister, what good was achieved the first time that you made the move?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. If I had had, say, £40,000 in my back pocket, I could have commissioned KPMG to do one for me, but I did not. Business models are being worked on for the other climate Bill, as has been mentioned many times. That, however, is not the one that we are debating or voting on today. If you were to calculate farm incomes now without including subsidies, you might also...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank Members for their contributions to what has been a lively, at times, and mostly interesting debate. We have all been listening intently, so I do not intend to summarise Members' comments, but I have picked up common themes relating to this group of amendments, and I want to address those. "Fair share" got a mention. What is a fair target for Northern Ireland? I remind Members that we...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for giving way. Is he aware that we are now being told by climate scientists that methane is posing a more immediate and greater risk than carbon and that we need to go further and faster with methane reductions?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Mr Speaker. [Interruption.] Sorry? That is all right. I had intended to speak to the grouped amendments. I had finished speaking to amendment No 2 just before the break for lunch, so I would like to address the other amendments that we have tabled in group 1. Amendment Nos 7 and 8 relate to interim targets for 2030 and 2040. We will not move those amendments. Instead, the Green...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: — just a second, please — to balance budgets by capping how many carbon units can be credited to the net Northern Ireland emissions account for a particular period at 25% of the total emissions for that period. While clause 9 provides for DAERA to set such a limit by regulations, it gives far too much power to one Minister and Department. The limit must be included in the Bill. I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I do not know what that scenario is, but I thank the Member for that point.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that point. He is going back to part of the previous conversation. The climate does not care about the efficiency per unit produced. What matters is the total amount of emissions. It is the total amount of emissions that we must look to reduce. I will go back to what I said to the Member before: the post-Brexit trade deals are the biggest threat when it comes to the...
