Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Nature-friendly Farming ( 7 Jun 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: I support the motion. Farming in Northern Ireland could be about to change significantly for the worse. The threat comes from the likely free trade deals with Australia and, subsequently, New Zealand and future trade deals with the United States. Northern Ireland's farming and food production sectors have been placed in needless peril. The guilty parties are the Brexit Leave campaign and, I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2021-22 ( 7 Jun 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: The debate on the Supply resolution for the Main Estimates 2021-22 requires Members' consideration and scrutiny. Members, right across the House, have indicated that this is extremely difficult for numerous reasons, as outlined. We have many financial difficulties and pressures, right across the Departments. We have serious problems in Northern Ireland, and they are so severe that we should...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2021-22 ( 7 Jun 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Yes, I do. As I indicated, we have no interest in blocking allocations of money that are desperately needed by Departments, but we have one vote. We would do things differently if we had more. As I said, you would not realise the extent of our problems, if you were to look at either the Finance Minister's Budget or the Economy Minister's plan. I will give a little example of why things are so...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2021-22 ( 7 Jun 2021)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matters of the Day: Special Envoy to the United States ( 7 Jun 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: The last thing on anybody's mind is to make this debate personal. It could easily be seen as a personal attack on Trevor Ringland, and I have no wish to be part of that at all. I want to express my party's very serious concerns that, once again, the Secretary of State is doing things on the hoof and without structure or process. That is not good enough. He is not some old-fashioned British...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget 2021-22 (25 May 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: This is not a good Budget. My colleague Matthew O'Toole stated the reasons why the Budget is beyond poor and inadequate and why the people of Northern Ireland deserve better. For the past 14 years, Northern Ireland has been led by joint First Ministers from Sinn Féin and the DUP. That leadership was supposed to deliver prosperity after the peace that was delivered by gigantic leaders such as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget 2021-22 (25 May 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: I will. Instead of prosperity, the North continues to have some of the worst economic outcomes of anywhere in western Europe. My city of Derry has the highest levels of poverty, unemployment and economic inactivity, but it is not just Derry that is suffering. The situation is the same in Strabane, west Belfast and east Belfast. Those are the areas that have suffered most from the neglect of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget 2021-22 (25 May 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: This is about the Budget: it is about how we allocate money in this place. I am talking directly about the Budget and the lack of investment in skills and education, including higher education, in Northern Ireland that has been going on for 14 years. I am entitled to explain what is actually happening here to the people of Northern Ireland, should they care to listen.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget 2021-22 (25 May 2021)

Sinéad McLaughlin: It is past time for the two largest parties to remember for whom they govern. It is not just for themselves or their party members; it is for the people of Northern Ireland. It is for our families, our children and the future. Those two parties lead the Administration, and they must lead. They must deliver. That means that they must deliver for those who are most in need: those on the longest...
