A recent survey demonstrated that 90% of consumers look at the rating of the premises compared with the 22% who look online. I also welcome the fact that this will allow for an authorised officer of a district council to issue a fixed penalty...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: People Diagnosed with HIV (29 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: I welcome the motion, which we will, of course, support. World Aids Day takes place this week, so the motion is timely and will, no doubt, be welcomed by those impacted by the disease and organisations such as Positive Life and the Rainbow Project. The number of people living with HIV has reached its highest ever level: almost 1,000 people in the North know that they are living with HIV....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Rural Schools: Draft Strategic Area Plan (21 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: As my party colleague Barry McElduff has outlined, we will oppose the motion and vote in favour of the amendment from the DUP. I accept that, as detailed in the draft plan, the nature of the North's education system, with its range of school management types, means that in proportion to the number of children and young people to be provided with places there is a higher number of schools than...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Rural Schools: Draft Strategic Area Plan (21 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: I thank the Member for her intervention. Our Education Ministers, including the most recent, John O'Dowd, made decisions based on pupils, their attainment and the value of the education that they receive. I am confident of that. I want to note in particular the vision outlined for the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon District Council area, which I represent. It includes a commitment:...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Nurture Provision (15 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: I thank the DUP for bringing the motion to the House; it is a motion that we are happy to support. A recent report in 'The Irish News' detailed the 529 children who are making consistently large improvements in social, emotional and behavioural development thanks to their inclusion in nurture provision. That alone is testament to the importance of continuing investment in nurture groups....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Middletown Centre for Autism (15 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: I thank the Member for giving way. I urge — [Laughter.] I thank the Member for his contribution. Apologies: it was me speaking. We do not want to divide on the issue. That would not send out a positive message to the centre or to teachers, parents and carers of children with autism. I hope that we can move forward on the issue, with consensus right across the House.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Middletown Centre for Autism (15 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: I thank all Members who contributed to the debate. It was a positive debate. I thank the Minister for being here.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Middletown Centre for Autism (15 Nov 2016)

Catherine Seeley: I thank the Minister: indeed, he has given multiple assurances this morning that have to be welcomed. When I spoke to the centre, I found that that is exactly what they want. They want to re-engage the Minister and the Department with a view to ensuring that there is a small level of residential provision and that access to respite is available. In my conversation with staff, they really...
