Northern Ireland Assembly: Office of First minister and deputy first minister: Potato Crop (Brown Rot) (6 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: 4. asked the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development if she is aware of an outbreak of brown rot in the Scottish potato crop and, if so, what steps she has taken to ensure that it will not contaminate the potato crop in Northern Ireland. (AQO 226/00)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts and Leisure: Lisburn Library (6 Nov 2000)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Electricty Costs (6 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: I welcome Mr Byrne’s motion and the amendment moved by Mr Beggs. I understand that they have come to an agreement about the motion. The Democratic Unionist Party will support whatever the Members have agreed. It is good to see that not all members of the SDLP suffer from the Dallat syndrome and can put forward practical and useful motions.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly: Languages (7 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Yesterday’s statement by the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety was made in Irish and English. However, the accompanying documentation omitted a paragraph of the statement in English, and that paragraph was also omitted when the statement was read out to the House. Can you give a ruling on statements that are made in Irish and English, to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: BSE (7 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: As a result of the BSE crisis, I believe that the Government took action in Northern Ireland to ensure that the most stringent measures were put in place for the production of beef. To some extent that has restored consumer confidence in Northern Ireland beef production. However, one of the issues mentioned in Ms Rodgers’s statement was about delays in taking action at various points in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Planning (Compensation, etc) Bill:  Second Stage (7 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Is this in relation to the Bill?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Programme for Government (13 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: I wish to address section 1.3 of the Programme, ‘A Cohesive, Inclusive and Just Society’. It discusses the new targeting social need policy. We should consider that policy: members of the public often refer to it as "targeting sectarian need". We must ensure that the targeting social need programme reaches across the entire community and does not reach only to specific areas of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Enterprise, Trade and Investment: Lagan Valley Constituency: Tourist Board Support (13 Nov 2000)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Higher and further education, training and employment: Walsh Visa Programme (13 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: 6. asked the Minister of Higher and Further Education, Training and Employment if he will detail (a) the number of young people who have participated in the Walsh Programme so far, (b) his satisfaction with the jobs allocated, and (c) the drop-out rate of those participating. (AQO 291/00)

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council:  Environment (14 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: There is nothing pedantic about the Chairman of the Environment Committee asking reasonable questions of the Minister. It is the role of the Committee to scrutinise the work of the Minister. [Interrpution] I am coming to the question, Mr Deputy Speaker. You were fairly liberal with other Members. I welcome the mention of the major accident hazards Directive. Did the Irish delegation give a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Budget Proposal (2001-02) (14 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Before getting to the bones of what I intend to say, I must comment on some of the things that have been said so far. I was astounded by Mr Cobain’s generosity, and I am sure that Mr Campbell, the Minister for Regional Development, will be delighted to learn that he has now got an additional £50 million for the railways as opposed to £20 million actually in the Budget. Of course, we can...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly: Languages (20 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Several weeks ago I raised the question of statements being made in the House in Irish which were not fully translated into English. You were to give a ruling on the matter. We received a rather inadequate excuse from the Minister involved, but we did not receive a ruling from you.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Public Expenditure (2000-01):  October Monitoring (20 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: The £1·5 million spent on the Shankill Road and the further £200,000 from the Department of Health to rehouse people in that area show the poison of paramilitaries in our society. They need to stand down. Good use could have been made of that money and social housing provided for people who need it. The victims originally asked for £500,000, and the £200,000 coming now is too little, too...

Northern Ireland Assembly: North/South Ministerial Council:  Trade and Business Development (20 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: In case the Minister would mislead the House, can I ask him to indicate which part of the Belfast Agreement envisaged the setting up of the Trade and Business Development Body? From the annex to the agreement, it is quite evident that it was not envisaged. This body was set up as a result of the Ulster Unionist Party being prepared to give further concessions to Nationalism. The Minister also...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Regional Development: Roads Improvement: TSN Policy (20 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: It is interesting that the Deputy Chairperson of the Committee does not read the letters that he receives. Can the Minister confirm that in the current year’s proposals there is enough provision to start these roadworks? Can he also confirm that unless the budget is cut drastically by the Executive, there will be sufficient finance to complete these roads in years two and three?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Student Finance (21 Nov 2000)

Esmond Birnie: ...Maskey, Kieran McCarthy, Barry McElduff, Gerry McHugh, Mitchel McLaughlin, Monica McWilliams, Francie Molloy, Maurice Morrow, Mick Murphy, Sean Neeson, Mary Nelis, Dara O’Hagan, Ian Paisley Jnr, Edwin Poots, Sue Ramsey, Mark Robinson, Jim Shannon, Denis Watson, Peter Weir, Jim Wells, Sammy Wilson. Question accordingly negatived. Main Question put and agreed to. Resolved: That this...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Special EU Programmes: North/South Ministerial Council Sectoral Meeting (27 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Does the Minister acknowledge that the £1·2 million being allocated from the Executive’s Budget would be better spent in actual programmes within Northern Ireland? Does he recognise that the cross-border element reduces the ability of areas not along the border to tap into that money? Is there not, therefore, an element of discrimination against areas such as Lagan Valley?

Northern Ireland Assembly: BSE (27 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Does the Minister recognise that it was she who set a date of October 2000 to have the beef ban lifted, thereby misleading the agricultural community? When will the ban be lifted? She told the Assembly that it would be March 2001. Is it going to be October 2001, October 2002, or October 2003? Is she implying that the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development did nothing during the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Education: Citizenship: Teaching In Schools (27 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: One of the rules for good citizens is the upholding of law and order. Will the Minister of Education call on school leavers to join the Police Service of Northern Ireland as part of the practice of good citizenship?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Health, Social services and public safety: Nurses (D Grade) (27 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: 3. asked the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety if she will detail the percentage of nurses employed at D grade in Northern Ireland and what is the comparable figure for the rest of the United Kingdom. (AQO 354/00)
