Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Consideration Stage (30 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: I, too, welcome the opportunity to speak on this important issue at the Consideration Stage of the Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill. I was not a Member when the Bill went through its Second Stage, but the Committee and the Department have done a considerable amount of work, and, in that time, I have certainly recognised the Bill's importance. This Bill follows the introduction of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Consideration Stage (30 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: No, you will have plenty of time. That is of great concern, and every effort must be made to ensure that it can be delivered on time, as the Minister has already warned. Miscarriage is an extremely sensitive and complex matter, and there can be many stages to it. Miscarriage can bring such devastation to so many families, and, unfortunately, some families can suffer multiple miscarriages,...

Stephen Dunne: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this important issue — the Second Stage of the Domestic Abuse (Safe Leave) Bill — and I am happy to support it at this stage.

It impacts on women, men and children, regardless of colour, class or creed, and it can take many forms, including...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Roads (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 2010 (22 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: I thank the Minister for her answer. Given the range of concerns about the outworkings of the legislation from community groups, sporting bodies and others since it took effect over four years ago, does she recognise that many small community organisations are simply put off organising those events owing to the red tape and prohibitive cost involved, particularly for advertisements and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Ulster Tower (22 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: Friday 19 November 2021 marked the centenary of the opening and dedication of the Ulster Tower in the northern fields of France, close to Thiepval Wood.

The Ulster Tower is a lasting...

What other avenues are the Department and the EA exploring to address the staffing challenges throughout the system?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Skills Strategy (9 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: Skills are indeed a vital part of growing our economy. I ask the Minister how important the skills academies that his Department is rolling out are, particularly at addressing the short-term needs of the economy, given that many employers are struggling to find suitable employees. For example, I met the owner of a tile business in my constituency last week, and he highlighted to me the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Water Quality and Safety at North Down Coastal Bathing Areas (2 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I thank the Member for securing the debate on this important issue and the Minister for coming this evening. Sea swimming has become an incredibly popular activity for people of all ages, and North Down has some of the best and most beautiful areas of Northern Ireland for open-sea swimming. Areas like Helen's Bay, Ballyholme, Brompton Bay, Crawfordsburn, Orlock,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: High Street Scheme (2 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: I thank the Minister for his welcome statement on the extension. It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge his enthusiasm in delivering the scheme. The retailers in my constituency are delighted with the scheme and have already seen a positive difference. That is certainly the feedback that I have received. In my experience, the vast majority of people have bought into the "spend local"...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Crisis (2 Nov 2021)

Stephen Dunne: Access to a safe, secure and fit-for-purpose home is a basic and fundamental human right. However, a roof over our head is much more than just that: it is vital to the physical, mental and emotional well-being of adults and children who, without a stable, safe and comfortable home, are less likely to succeed academically, more likely to end up in poorly paid employment, potentially be led...
