Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Housing Executive: Transfer of Ownership (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: 2. Mr E McCann asked the Minister for Communities, pursuant to AQW 4374/16-21, to outline his Department's scrutiny of discussions by the Strategic Investment Board and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive in relation to the transfer of ownership of Housing Executive buildings. (AQO 961/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Housing Executive: Transfer of Ownership (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: As the Minister noted, I have raised this question a number of times in my stint here. The question that I am asking here goes to the heart of the matters which I have raised in questions and letters that I have sent to various people involved. When I read the minutes of the meetings of the Strategic Investment Board (SIB), I read discussions about the Housing Executive stock and whether it...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Review of Bail Policy in Cases of Terrorism and Murder (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Mr Frew has just referred to people campaigning with placards demanding the release of this one and that one. He characterised it as standing side by side with extremists. It is not standing side by side with extremists to call for the release of anybody — certainly not. I hereby repeat my call for the release of Tony Taylor. Tony Taylor is a republican from Derry who was released under...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Review of Bail Policy in Cases of Terrorism and Murder (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: That certainly is the perception, and of course —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Review of Bail Policy in Cases of Terrorism and Murder (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Thank you very much. When there is such a perception, and it is based on material reality, that is a real problem for law and order in any society. Yesterday, we voted for the motion in relation to the attempted killing on the Crumlin Road. We did that because we are against the strategy of "armed struggle", as republicans call it. We are not against it since the Good Friday Agreement; we...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Review of Bail Policy in Cases of Terrorism and Murder (24 Jan 2017)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Cavity Insulation: NIHE Properties (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Will the Minister give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Cavity Insulation: NIHE Properties (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Given what the Minister just said, does he agree that all the problems in housebuilding and maintenance would be eased and ameliorated if the Housing Executive were given the right power to borrow money on the market to fund the work we all know needs to be done urgently? Does he agree that should be done? If he does not agree, why not?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Cavity Insulation: NIHE Properties (24 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Every single Member so far has mentioned the financial constraints on the Housing Executive. Does the Member agree with me that there are ways out of this problem of a lack of resources to deal with cavity wall insulation, damp and mould, which affects houses in every constituency? One obvious way forward, which is not being explored, is to give the Housing Executive the power to borrow...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: I want to say first that, having sat here and listened to the debate, there were one or two occasions when I felt a wee bit uneasy. Those were occasions when quite spirited attacks were made on the Sinn Féin party for its actions which contributed to the suspension of the Assembly or the crumpling of the institutions. The suggestion seems to be that, somehow, Sinn Féin was — or seemed...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: — was too worried about wee Catholics disappearing from the Termonbacca school. They disappeared. These people were in the custody of the state. I could give you other examples, but I do not have the time. We have to —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report (23 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Yes. We should do all the things that are said here. We should also draw certain conclusions about certain institutions.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (23 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Sorry, Mike. Yes. I mean, not sorry. Come ahead. [Laughter.]

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (23 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: I suppose that it does. I am glad that you made that point.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (23 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: That is fair enough, Mr Speaker. I will. I have to say to you that in the course of the debate — it has been a lengthy one — we have had passages of debate in which the regulations, or anything associated with them, were not mentioned for five or 10 minutes. I have certainly said nothing so far that was as far removed from the regulations as other Members have been — repeatedly —...
