Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Climate Legislation (31 Jan 2022)

Clare Bailey: Since 1998, the people of Northern Ireland have got used to being let down by politicians at Stormont. The traditional parties have offered us division, indecision and, far too often, the collapse of devolution itself. Tomorrow, we have a collective opportunity to show the courage and leadership that are needed to get us on the path to new ways of delivering the action that we need to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Consideration Stage (17 Jan 2022)

Clare Bailey: I will make some short comments at this stage. I remind the House again that my children attended a primary school where, at one point, up to 27 languages were being spoken, but it was not an integrated school. There is, therefore, a difference with regard to the diversity and demographics of the pupils and the set-up of the school. I am listening to the debate. We had the Bill's Second Stage...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Consideration Stage (17 Jan 2022)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for giving way. I am conscious that he is a recent ex-Minister in the Department. Do schools not already do those audits or know the socio-economic backgrounds of their pupils or their levels of ability, or would that be a new thing for schools to do?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Belfast Rapid Transit: South Belfast (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank my colleague Christopher Stalford for bringing this debate to the House. Listening to the comments, we know that one bus will not solve the climate crisis, nor will it solve air pollution. Of course, most people are supportive of upgrading public transport in South Belfast. Like others, I have heard concerns about phase 2 of the Glider scheme that are a direct result of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Belfast Rapid Transit: South Belfast (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Deputy Speaker.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Belfast Rapid Transit: South Belfast (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: I will just address the concerns that were raised. I have already said that, no matter where the bus goes and what the route is, businesses and residents on that route will have concerns. That is a given. The whole point is that their concerns are linked to not being engaged. Things are done in silos. They feel that the consultation that was put out was a tick-box exercise and that there were...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Belfast Rapid Transit: South Belfast (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you for that. Co-design is where I was going. Of course, the residents and businesses along the arterial routes want to see their areas thrive. They also know and understand their areas. They understand their problems. They see and understand the opportunities better than engineers or departmental officials ever could, so they should be actively involved in designing such schemes. As...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: The Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill: Consideration Stage (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: I too oppose clauses 1 and 2 standing part of the Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill. It is really interesting to note that the Bill makes no mention of disability, despite what we have heard. Severe fetal impairment is a separate issue, but, sure, why let fact get in the way of good moral legislation? My party cannot and will not support either the clauses or the intent of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: The Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill: Consideration Stage (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: Women in Northern Ireland have never been afforded their rights by this institution. When abortion was eventually decriminalised in 2020, it was not done by this House; ironically, of course, it was done in the absence of this House. The legislation was changed at Westminster. It was not done at Westminster because MPs had finally discovered the 50 years of discrimination that they had...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Avian Influenza in Northern Ireland (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for his statement. It is indeed a very distressing time for all bird keepers. Minister, in your response to Mr Blair, you said that communication is absolutely important, and of course it is. The first confirmed cases of the outbreak were in swans at Belfast City Council's Waterworks park in north Belfast. I believe that that was on 25 November. As Mr Blair said, we heard...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill (13 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: T1. Ms Bailey asked the Minister of Health how, if the Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill passes, it will impact on his office, given that, during questions to the First Minister and deputy First Minister, she heard members on the DUP Benches say that, later today, the Assembly will debate the most controversial and far-reaching healthcare regulations to date, and perhaps they...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill (13 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you. Further to that, Minister, can you give an update to the House on how far progressed the commissioning of those services is?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Executive Committee Business: Direct Payments to Farmers (Simplifications) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2022 (7 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: Whilst simplifications are welcome, certainly for farmers, it is extremely disappointing that, for a second year after leaving the EU CAP system, the changes that we are making in Northern Ireland in how we pay directly to farmers remain so insignificant. Despite the fact that there are two climate Bills in the system, the regulations lack any environmental focus whatever. Even at the EU...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Grammar-school Admissions Criteria (6 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: What action can you or your Department take in the case of people appointed as board members of voluntary grammars who are found to be acting unlawfully or not adhering to the Teachers’ Negotiating Committee?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Hatch Report: Leaked Copy (6 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: T4. Ms Bailey asked the Minister for the Economy whether the leaked copy of what is claimed to be the Hatch report, which has appeared on social media, albeit he will be too busy to have kept an eye on it or to have read it himself, though his departmental officials will have, is the same as the report that is on his desk. (AQT 1864/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Hatch Report: Leaked Copy (6 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you. Will the Minister assure the House that absolutely no farmland in Northern Ireland will be given over to the fracking industry?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: British-Irish Council: Summit (30 Nov 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for the statement. I noticed that, when he was asked about robust legislation, he discussed opportunities in the energy sector, of which there are, of course, many. The UK Government have set robust legislation, and we are, of course, part of the UK political union, but we are also a separate land mass, and that is key when we are tackling emissions and climate change....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: 'Decarbonisation of Road Transport in Northern Ireland': Committee Report (29 Nov 2021)

Clare Bailey: Like others, I thank the Committee for producing the report. This is a great discussion and is exactly what we should do as an Assembly, but I do not want to go over the many points and issues that have been raised. The report is pretty damning about the state of our infrastructure system. That should be absolutely no shock to anybody who has been paying attention. Transport is the...
