Sinéad McLaughlin: T8. Ms McLaughlin asked the Minister for Infrastructure, given the spin and politicking from Sinn Féin earlier today, to outline the truth of her position on the October monitoring round. (AQT 1728/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Infrastructure: October Monitoring Round: DFI Position ( 1 Nov 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Does the Minister agree that it is totally wrong that a Minister would come to the House and repeatedly peddle falsehoods and spin? It is punishing the people who are most vulnerable. They do not deserve it. They deserve the truth.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: October Monitoring Round ( 1 Nov 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Minister, it is fair to say that the UK Prime Minister has a fondness for stretching the truth. I would argue that so do you. There was a bid from your Communities Minister. You had the power and the money to deliver the £55 million for universal credit; you chose not to do so. You are the Minister who also signed off on £165 million for a shopping voucher —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: October Monitoring Round ( 1 Nov 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: — for all over-18s. Surely you have the foresight to know what the priorities of the most vulnerable in our society are. That is your job.

Sinéad McLaughlin: There were other options.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Autumn/Winter Contingency Plan (19 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: I thank the First Minister and deputy First Minister for the statement and contingency plan. The Committee has been consistent in its message that the introduction or removal of restrictions must be evidence-based, and that there must be clear messaging around what we all should do and not do. I think that it is fair to say that messaging from the joint office is not always clear or...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Inter-parliamentary Dialogue (18 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: There are many reasons why it is essential that we have a sober and sensible discussion in and around Brexit and its specific impact in Ireland on both sides of the border. We all know that this is not just about trade, but we also know just how important trade is. Above all, it is about respect — respect for all the traditions that exist on this island. Many of us, including me, regard...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Inter-parliamentary Dialogue (18 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Thank you very much. There is a lot of work to be done in order for us to get the correct procedures in place so that there is true governance and transparency. However, that work has started as a result of the announcements by the EU. It is on all of us to, collectively, find a pathway through so that we all feel that we are represented and we all have a voice. We are not there yet, but we...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Justice for Derry (18 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: My role here is to represent the people of Derry, and I have to tell the Assembly that people in Derry are angry. They are angry because our city has the highest unemployment in the North of Ireland, which has been the case for many years; because the rate of poverty in our council area is the highest in the North, which has also been the case for many years; because the people who live in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Jobs: Derry (12 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: T3. Ms McLaughlin asked the Minister for the Economy how many jobs he has announced in Derry this year, given that today’s employment stats show that 5·9% of working-age adults, including 7·6% of working-age men, in Derry are on a claimant count register. (AQT 1673/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Jobs: Derry (12 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Sorry, Minister. The issue is that —.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Jobs: Derry (12 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Minister, you still did not answer my question: I asked how many job announcements you had made this year. You did not answer that. However, you have announced 1,600 jobs in Belfast this year. Why have the DUP Minister and his predecessors constantly neglected Foyle for jobs and university provision? What are you going to do about the unemployment crisis in my constituency? What is your...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Bill: Second Stage (12 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: I support the Bill. I, too, commend Ms Bailey for bringing it to the House. Let me be clear: this is a debate not about our personal views on abortion — I have pretty strong ones — but about affording people the right to access healthcare free from harassment and abuse. Safe access zones for those seeking information and services in relation to abortion are long overdue. Everyone has a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Labour Shortages (11 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: I support the motion. I am sure that the Minister for the Economy and the Agriculture Minister will argue that the labour and skills shortages that we are suffering today are not simply the result of the Brexit that they and their party so strongly argued for and voted into place. If the Minister says that skills shortages already existed prior to Brexit, he will certainly have a point....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Labour Shortages (11 Oct 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Sorry, I have a lot to get through, Keith. We need a more positive and progressive Government to persuade more of our young people to stay here, to commit to their futures here, to rebuild our society here and to provide us with the skills that we need to expand our economy and increase the wages of all our people. Over the years, the Economy Committee has received a raft of reports outlining...
