Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme: Public Inquiry (17 Jan 2017)

Gerry Mullan: Does the Member agree that the fishing analogy that Mr Frew used in his contribution was somewhat unwise when he referred to the feeding frenzy and to members of my party being caught on the hook? Does he agree that the only frenzy that I am aware of — I am sure he is aware of it too — is the frenzy of people who tried to sign up to this botched scheme in the spike when hundreds of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme: Public Inquiry (17 Jan 2017)

Gerry Mullan: I am sorry; I will not take any interventions because you have had long enough to say and do the right thing. You have not done so up to this point and you will certainly not take advantage of me to make any political points. It is ironic that the Economy Minister, Mr Hamilton, seemed very content yesterday to remove regulations, which are open to legal challenge, and he will not publish the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme: Public Inquiry (17 Jan 2017)

Gerry Mullan: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I thank the Member for his comments and I agree totally. I was asking what the money could possibly have been used for had it not been squandered to the extent that it was. Hospitals and our GPs are facing crisis point and our roads are in a dilapidated condition. In my area, work was recently done on the railway line, which caused the roads around my area to be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme: Public Inquiry (17 Jan 2017)

Gerry Mullan: — yet it agreed to a Programme for Government. Mr Speaker, as I am making a winding-up speech, I thought that I had 10 minutes — [Interruption.] — I am not making a winding-up speech. OK. I will conclude and say that —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme: Public Inquiry (17 Jan 2017)

Gerry Mullan: I welcome the opportunity to participate in today's debate concerning very hastily brought forward regulations that attempt to mitigate spend on the botched renewable heat incentive scheme. I do not need to remind anyone that the unregulated and uncapped RHI cash for ash scheme is indeed the biggest scandal ever to hit this country. It is the biggest scandal ever in the history of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Bushmills Outdoor Education Centre: Proposed Closure (6 Dec 2016)

Gerry Mullan: Because of the time constraints that have been placed on me, I will cut to the chase. I echo the sentiments that have been expressed by practically everybody in the House today. It is very concerning that the path to getting to where we are today has been one of deception and dishonesty from the Education Authority. Unless you, Minister, use your good offices to bring this despicable...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Bushmills Outdoor Education Centre: Proposed Closure (6 Dec 2016)

Gerry Mullan: — on the service provided. Nowhere in the review is staffing mentioned. I urge the Minister to do what he can.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teachers’ Pay Dispute (6 Dec 2016)

Gerry Mullan: Regardless of what the Minister may think, I do not speak for the NASUWT; I represent the children. Can the Minister enlighten me on whether he has engaged with the Finance Minister or any other Executive colleagues concerning the future of teachers' pay?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Medical School in the North-west (29 Nov 2016)

Gerry Mullan: I welcome the opportunity to participate in today's debate. I will say at the outset that the focus of the debate should be on the best outcomes that we can achieve for our long-suffering constituents rather than on getting into party politics with disingenuous remarks towards other Members taking part in the debate. It would be remiss of me, in the context of the debate, not to express my...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Energy Affordability and Security (22 Nov 2016)

Gerry Mullan: I thank the House for the crescendo, the very warm introduction, and the accessories. [Laughter.] As a Member for East Derry, I too welcome the opportunity to participate in the debate about the future of our energy supply, especially in the renewables sector. It is clear that there is broad consensus that a transformation is needed in our energy system if our society is to meet the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Energy Affordability and Security (22 Nov 2016)

Gerry Mullan: I cannot agree more. We now face a very uncertain future for renewables and I welcome the Minister's comments on how he intends to plug that financial gap without hampering future renewables investment. In addition, there is uncertainty over how EU directives will work, as they require cross-border connectivity, but these directives, like many EU initiatives, face an uncertain future as...

Gerry Mullan: Can the Minister give further clarification about the e-learning packages that she has advocated and what form they may take?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Rating Policy (22 Nov 2016)

Gerry Mullan: I thank the Minister for his statement. I was glad to note that in your statement, Minister, you recognise the valuable contribution that charity shops make to our society by attracting shoppers onto our high streets and through the very valuable work that they do to support the most marginalised and most vulnerable in society. You intend to carry out further consultations on the matter....
