Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Second Stage (12 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. Again, I go back to the situation of someone who is trying to access healthcare and is fearful about doing so, or prevented or intimated from doing so. They are not reporting to the police. They are leaving the area and not accessing the healthcare. The Bill is about creating safe zones for people to access healthcare so that they do not necessarily have to make a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Second Stage (12 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: I beg to move That the Second Stage of the Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill [NIA 35/17-22] be agreed.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Second Stage (12 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you. First, if possible, I reassure Members that the Bill is by no means a rushed response to the escalation of protests that we are seeing at hospitals, clinics and family-planning centres across Northern Ireland. It is a response to what I witnessed and experienced during my time as a volunteer at the Marie Stopes clinic in Belfast city centre. What I learned during that time was that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Second Stage (12 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for the intervention. In my experience, the current harassment laws simply do not suffice. Under current harassment laws, we have to have the one person targeting the same person on two or more occasions, and that person then reporting it to the police. In my experience, anybody who is accessing particular services will not report harassment to the police because they want...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Arts and the Creative Industries (11 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: It is great to hear so many speaking in support of the motion and acknowledging the lack of value we have shown the sector. That is exactly what has led to the ongoing disgraceful and stressful situation that the sector continually finds itself in. I speak as the chair of the all-party group on arts. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. The notification for the next one will go out...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Arts and the Creative Industries (11 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: I support the motion. I would like to see the rapid development of an urgently needed strategy whereby we can not just sustain and maintain the sector but allow it to thrive.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Health: Medical Abortions: Provision of an Early Access Point (4 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: Minister, I, first, declare an interest as a board member of Informing Choices NI. I do not want to go into the specifics, but you mentioned that it put in a funding request of £83,000. You commented that BPAS will now provide the service at no cost, which is a wee bit misleading because it is a cost. Although it may not be at a cost to your Department, it is at a cost to BPAS, which is a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Sanitary and Phytosanitary Standards: Bespoke Agreement (4 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: My goodness, from listening to some of the contributions, Mr Speaker, you might be fooled into thinking that Brexit has had no impact in GB and only on us in Northern Ireland. As others have said, Brexit has been a disaster for the UK: for GB and for Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Sanitary and Phytosanitary Standards: Bespoke Agreement (4 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: What about petrol stations? What about empty shelves? I could go on. [Interruption.] The UK Government had years to prepare for the mess that —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Sanitary and Phytosanitary Standards: Bespoke Agreement (4 Oct 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The UK Government had years to prepare for the mess that they made, but we all suffer their bluff and bluster as they continue to uphold their mess without our consent. They have repeatedly shown contempt for consent as a principle, so that should not surprise anybody. For the duration of the Brexit process, we have been bombarded with legislation, statutory instruments...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Small-Scale Green Energy Bill: Second Stage (28 Sep 2021)

Clare Bailey: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I have seriously cut down my speaking notes, so I will not be saying everything that I wanted to say. Most of us know that we are in a climate emergency in Northern Ireland. In our push to achieve net zero, the energy sector will be able to move far and fast, and renewable energy will be key to achieving that. The Green Party will support the key policy...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Small-Scale Green Energy Bill: Second Stage (28 Sep 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Member for that. He is really getting into the planning system there, and we are going to go into that one. I have spent a long time looking at AD plants, the pollution and the ammonia-emitting projects. I will be happy to show the Member a picture of the ammonia map that we have produced for Northern Ireland. We have a lot to do, and while there is a theory, we are not good at...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (27 Sep 2021)

Clare Bailey: I thank the Minister for giving way. There has been much mention of the CCC's independent expert advice in setting the targets and advising you and the Executive. Can you let the House know what other expert advice you have availed yourself of when drafting the Bill?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (27 Sep 2021)

Clare Bailey: It is impossible to look at the Bill without also looking at the state of us in Northern Ireland. We have had carbon reductions of 18% since 1990, when every other region is reducing by an average of up to 40%. Why is that? We have been pursuing the Going for Growth strategy with no regard to the environmental, climate or human health consequences. Our habitats and communities are choking on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (27 Sep 2021)

Clare Bailey: Minister, you sit on the North/South Ministerial Council. You should have that conversation with your ministerial colleagues in the South and bring that learning back to us. Recently, I read about a project called Farm Zero C that has received funding in County Cork. It aims to make 5,000 dairy farms carbon neutral within the next five years. That is the kind of innovation that is being...
