Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Charlotte’s Law (22 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: Minister, will you give us an indication as to what your legislative programme is, including some indicative times, please?

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. Rampant inflation might have eased somewhat, but prices are still rising. Often, the choice for a household that is under severe financial pressure is between food and heat. 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. Unlike electricity and gas, the home heating oil market, as the Member said, is unregulated and can be highly volatile. The cost per litre is currently around 66p, but, in the past 18 months, it has varied from...

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

Patsy McGlone: — for reducing fuel poverty by which the public can, and we can, judge its effectiveness.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: NI Water: Planning Application Consultations (16 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: I thank the Minister for that detail. Perhaps we could establish whether there is more information around the level of delay that has been experienced by some people. In a previous debate, the Minister referred to the need for or the use of pre-application discussions. Will he commit to providing extra resources to NI Water to facilitate that?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Healthcare: Cross-border Initiatives (15 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: 5. Mr McGlone asked the Minister of Health, further to the work of the North West Cancer Centre, to outline what plans he has to expand other cross-border healthcare initiatives. (AQO 268/22-27)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Healthcare: Cross-border Initiatives (15 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: I thank the Minister very much for his answer; indeed, he answered my supplementary question as well. I recently referred to the Minister a case of a very rare form of genetic cancer. Will he please consider whether there is an opportunity to deal with that on a cross-border basis, or maybe through further collaboration with some UK hospitals?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Minority Communities: Support (15 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: I thank the Minister for her response, particularly the part about social, environmental and economic well-being. Does the Minister agree that, in many areas, there is increased rural isolation, which has been brought about by a denuding of services in some areas, such as health, domiciliary care and the like? We already have a problem with the absence of public transport in some areas. Does...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Birth Certificates: Irish Translation ( 9 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: San am i láthair, tá muid in áit iontach aisteach, ina dtig leat teastas breithe a fháil as Gaeilge, deimhniú báis a fháil as Gaeilge, ach ní thig leat uacht a dhéanamh as Gaeilge ach an oiread. [Translation: At present, we are in the strange position in which one can have a birth certificate in Irish, as well as a death certificate in Irish, but we still cannot have a will conducted...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: NI Water Challenges ( 8 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: I thank the Member for giving way. I have a brief point about NI Water's resources and its capacity to engage with developers. I know of about 400 houses that cannot be built because of delays with NI Water and resources and stuff. However, they are under capacity themselves at the moment. That engagement with developers could take many months before we get a conclusion.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: NI Water Challenges ( 8 Apr 2024)

Patsy McGlone: We in the SDLP welcome the motion. We believe that it offers the opportunity to explore the options without a commitment to restructure NI Water at this time. However, we need to be convinced that any restructuring will not result in water charges. As Mr Boylan said, such charges are entirely unacceptable, as, indeed, is the kind of profiteering and chaos that has been allowed to develop in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Students: Financial Assistance (19 Mar 2024)

Patsy McGlone: 7. Mr McGlone asked the Minister for the Economy for an update on the financial support provided by his Department to students in further education, as a result of the cost-of-living crisis. (AQO 181/22-27)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Students: Financial Assistance (19 Mar 2024)

Patsy McGlone: Go raibh maith agat, a Aire. Gabhaim buíochas leat as an méid atá ráite agat. [Translation: Thank you, Minister. I thank you for what you have said.] Thank you for the amount of detail that you have given us. Your recent announcement, Minister, of financial support for students at universities did not contain further financial support for FE students in particular. Is there any reason why...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Lough Neagh: Blue-green Algae (11 Mar 2024)

Patsy McGlone: T1. Mr McGlone asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development for more detail on the proposal outlined during evidence to the AERA Committee last Thursday, when members heard that his Department would avail itself of the small business research initiative to look at methods to deal with blue-green algae on Lough Neagh. (AQT 101/22-27)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Lough Neagh: Blue-green Algae (11 Mar 2024)

Patsy McGlone: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire as ucht a fhreagra. [Translation: I thank the Minister for his answer.] Will you give us some idea of what the process will then be? Will the research be done, and, if potential good resolutions are identified in that, will there be invitations to companies that might fit the bill for those resolutions?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Bovine TB: Compensation (11 Mar 2024)

Patsy McGlone: I concur with the Minister's congratulations to the new Chief Veterinary Officer, Brian Dooher. I have met him on a number of occasions, and I am sure that he will prove to be a capable and effective public servant. We are talking about compensation. Can you tell us what advice you have taken on addressing the spread of TB, which is the real problem? What information have you sought to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Act 2023 (11 Mar 2024)

Patsy McGlone: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire. [Translation: I thank the Minister.] In regard to the recent use or, I should say, abuse of public interest immunity (PII) certificates to frustrate the inquest process, particularly the inquest into the murder of Sean Brown, will the Minister endorse the comments by Mr Justice Kinney on the establishment of a public inquiry into his murder?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: Water Infrastructure ( 5 Mar 2024)
