Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Independent Environmental Protection Agency (13 May 2024)

Patsy McGlone: I beg to move That this Assembly declares an ecological and biodiversity crisis; acknowledges the complex characteristics of biodiversity and ecological breakdown in Lough Neagh, which includes high concentrations of phosphates and nitrates from agricultural run-off, the durability of the waste water infrastructure, the impact of invasive species and the catalyst of higher temperatures caused...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Independent Environmental Protection Agency (13 May 2024)

Patsy McGlone: It is with some disappointment that I move the motion today, not because of a lack of enthusiasm or a lack of need to establish an independent environmental protection agency or because of the urgency with which that is needed, but because we should have had an agency in place already. Like many necessary developments, it has been promised and delayed repeatedly by Executive parties. That is...

[Translation: I thank the Minister for her answers so far.] Minister, you have had the overwhelming support of the Assembly to negotiate a fiscal framework that reflects our needs, and you have outlined those.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Fuel Poverty (16 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: As we all know, household budgets are under enormous pressure. Childcare continues to be exorbitantly expensive and, in many areas, difficult if not impossible to access.

That is why a fuel poverty strategy is essential,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Fuel Poverty (16 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: Absolutely. When you look at the exorbitant, crucifying profits of the oil companies in particular in times of crisis, you ask yourself, "Who's codding whom here?". It is despicable.

The cost per litre is currently around 66p, but, in the past 18 months, it has varied from...
