Harry Harvey: Will the Minister highlight what steps he has taken in the past two years to improve our environment?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Bovine Tuberculosis in Northern Ireland (24 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: Minister, do you agree that the wildlife intervention is needed to maximise the success of the next phase of the policy, which is primarily vaccination, by breaking the cycle of infection and reducing the infection load?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Future Agricultural Policy Decisions for Northern Ireland (24 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: Farming with nature is a key element of the policy, and I welcome the outcomes-based model that it follows. However, Minister, how will you ensure that all land types play their part in delivering for nature?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Speaker's Business: End of Mandate (22 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: To those of you who will not be standing for election again, I wish you well. I have enjoyed getting to know you all and have really enjoyed working with you. Some of you are in the House today, and others are at home. There are lots of reasons that you will not be standing, but I will miss you, and, as I say, I have enjoyed working with you. I also want to remember those who departed from us...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Fair Employment (School Teachers) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (21 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on the amendment. As was noted at Consideration Stage, my party and I continue to support the passage of the Bill. The 24 months will be useful to provide schools with the time to prepare for the introduction of the legislation. It will also allow for positive conversations with stakeholders. It is worth noting the consensus generated across all...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Schools Estate: Major Capital Works Projects (21 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: I welcome the Minister's statement. It is good to see her back with us. Will today's announcement of a large number of post-primary-school projects prevent future capital calls from being made for the next decade?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: General Teaching Council (Directions) Bill: Final Stage (15 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: At the outset, I thank the Minister for the speed at which she has acted to address the issue. It was clear to those of us on the Education Committee not only that the Bill warranted approval but that it should be moved under accelerated passage. I am pleased to see it come to Final Stage. To say that the Baker Tilly Mooney Moore report revealed an organisation in chaos would be an...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Final Stage (9 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: As the Bill comes into the home straight of the legislative process, the time for decisions is upon us. We have reached the last chance saloon for Members to wake up to the realities of what the Bill will mean for their constituents and for the schools that are in their constituencies. I know that, over recent weeks, many have been listening to the growing voices in the controlled and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Final Stage (9 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: Throughout the passage of the Bill, I have continually sought to defend the agri-food sector against attempts by some in the Chamber to destroy the industry. Since the introduction of the Bill, it is fair to say that our farmers have been to the brink and back. The process has caused a lot of needless anxiety and concern for many who have watched on, aware of the potential of the legislation...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Challenges Experienced by Women in the Local Agriculture Sector (8 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: As Members have said, it is very fitting that this motion is being debated on International Women's Day. It goes without saying that women contribute so much across society, in traditional roles and, more and more, in roles that would have been less popular for them in previous years. One such area has been engineering. That is evidenced by the rising number of females who are entering that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Independent Strategic Review of the Northern Ireland Agri-food Sector (1 Mar 2022)

Harry Harvey: Do the devastating developments in Ukraine not further highlight the need to retain food production capacity in this region and to not rely on others?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (28 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: I will base the majority of my remarks around the fundamental amendment in the group, which is amendment No 1, and the other amendments that flow from it. Unfortunately, the Bill, as now amended, is a far cry from the Minister's original Bill, which was based on science and the recommendations from the UK Climate Change Committee. That having been said, I welcome any amendments that seek to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Blue-carbon Habitats: Action Plan (28 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: I thank the Minister for bringing the statement to the House today. Minister, I welcome this approach. However, will you agree with me that there are still a lot of unknowns? It reinforces the need for clearer research to mitigate any unintended consequences of any policy changes. Does the Minister agree that we need to invest much more in pilot projects with robust scientific monitoring?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: I will make a brief contribution on this group. First, in relation to the funding of the education estate, amendment Nos 5 and 6 speak to the "overall sustainability" of the school estate. I appreciate the intention of the Member with these amendments, but they fly in the face of the clear outworkings of the Bill generally. As the Minister rightly pointed out during the group 1 debate, many...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: As we come to the final legislative stages of the Bill, we are very swiftly entering the last chance saloon for Members to speak up for the education sectors set to be left behind thanks to the Bill. I do not need to rehearse the debates at previous sittings. The comment was made that the Bill has been rushed, and rushed legislation never makes for good legislation, not least when it deals...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. As the Department and the Minister have told us ad nauseam, the money will have to come from somewhere else in education. I am interested to know where, the supporters of the Bill believe, the cuts should be made. It is now the time to decide. There can be no more sitting on the fence: either Members support discrimination against the controlled and maintained...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools: COVID-19 Guidance (23 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: Minister, I understand that the Department issued guidance to schools in December about remote learning. How is that being monitored? What advice was issued about examination classes? Can the Minister share with the House any information about the extent to which remote learning has been used?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Environment Fund 2022-23 (22 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: I welcome the Minister's statement. Does he agree with me that farmers are key to delivering for the environment and that, without them, we would not have managed landscape, which creates the backdrop for wildlife habitats and biodiversity?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Autism (Amendment) Bill: Consideration Stage (15 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: I thank my colleague Pam Cameron for bringing the legislation to the House. I also thank the all-party group on autism and Autism NI, which provides the APG with its secretariat, for their efforts in bringing the Autism (Amendment) Bill to the Assembly, 10 years on from the Autism Act (Northern Ireland) 2011. We all have loved ones, family members, friends, co-workers and neighbours who are...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: School Age Bill: Second Stage (8 Feb 2022)

Harry Harvey: I echo the remarks made by other Members in thanking the Minister for bringing the Bill before the House. I am glad that the Education Committee agreed to recommend accelerated passage for it. Hopefully, that will ensure that greater flexibility will exist for the children who are due to start primary 1 next year. Legislation on the matter has been talked about for some time. I am glad that...
