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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for her intervention. I am not sure if she was here at the start of the debate, but I was not present to move amendment No 1, which proposed the 2045 target, so I think that that is off the table already. Money is flowing into Scotland because of the challenges that Scotland faces with decarbonisation. Why, then, is there the attitude at UK level, which we in Northern...

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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his ambition. If we are really leading the way and doing better, why stop that ambition and slow us down? Why not keep going? The European Union has introduced a 2050 net zero target. Northern Ireland cannot just become a solitary corner of Europe that is left behind. Net zero is possible. The chief executive of the CCC, speaking on 'Good Morning Ulster' in November,...

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

Clare Bailey: The Member rightly raises the fact that different states across Europe have their own targets. While Europe has set a target of net zero by 2050, Sweden, for example, has increased that ambition; I think that its target is now to reach net zero by 2045. Finland has set a target for net zero by 2035, in line with your policy; maybe Finland has taken a leaf out of the Member's manifesto....

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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. It goes back to what I have said already: we are a separate land mass, and the environmental impact is very different for us than it is on the GB land mass. We know that we, in Northern Ireland, are the climate laggards. We are the highest emitters across these islands. The biodiversity and the environmental damage being done here is not the same as that in GB....

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

Clare Bailey: I want to finish this. Am I only speaking to this amendment, Mr Principal Deputy Speaker?

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

Clare Bailey: OK. Thank you. I will wrap up on this amendment. As legislators, this is our decision. The targets are a political choice. We have to make a decision for ourselves. It goes beyond party political interests. It goes beyond short-term considerations. It goes beyond elections. It goes beyond the interests of corporate lobbyists. It is about securing a future for ourselves, for our children and...

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

Clare Bailey: I beg to move amendment No 2: In page 1, line 6, leave out “82%” and insert “100%”.

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

Clare Bailey: I will take the opportunity to apologise to the House. I was not in my seat, and I was not here on time. I am very sorry. Business has moved much quicker than scheduled today. I can only apologise. Thank you for allowing me to speak. If it is OK, I will speak to the group as a whole. The amendments in group 1 relate to the targets and the interim target years. A strong and certain target will...

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

Clare Bailey: I referenced 2045 because it is in the context of what the Green Party proposes. Of course, I am not moving amendment No 1, but the other amendments that we proposed to the Bill are all linked. I am speaking to the general debate rather than the amendment. I hope that the Member will allow me to do that, because almost every party present in the Chamber signed up to that commitment in the...

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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for his intervention. Of course, that is the same KPMG that was found last week to be falsifying minutes and records in order to produce a report for the fossil fuel industry. Yesterday, we heard from KPMG that the figures that it gave in that report removed the public subsidies to the sector, which are up to 86%, when doing that assessment. It removed the public subsidy...

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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his intervention. Of course, had he listened to my words, I said that many countries that rely heavily on agriculture have set net zero targets, not that farmers in those countries were very happy with that. What he refers to in the Act that has been enacted in the South is that it needs the plans to go with it, and that is in motion at the minute. The South will set...

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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for the intervention. Again, I will go back to what I just said. The imports from other trade deal negotiations being undertaken by Boris Johnson — the post-Brexit utopia that he envisaged — are the greater threat to Northern Ireland produce being able to continue to survive in GB markets. To continue down that path with blinkers on is insanity, given that we do not...

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

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for the intervention. Of course, food supplies will change as climate mitigations and climate change become even more apparent. What they will be remains unknown, but we need to really question whether it is Northern Ireland that will feed Brazil, if that was your example. I am not really sure about that or whether we would even have the capacity to do that. We are part of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Rural Policy Framework for Northern Ireland (31 Jan 2022)

Clare Bailey: The historical failure of the Department to engage women and young people cannot be denied. Minister, as I listened to your statement, I noted that there was no mention of women or young people in it, which makes me wonder what is new about the framework. I listened to your reply to Ms Sheerin. Outside of meet-and-mingles in rural halls, Minister, what is the plan in the new framework to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Rural Policy Framework for Northern Ireland (31 Jan 2022)

Clare Bailey: I never mentioned pollinator schemes.
