Northern Ireland Assembly: Economic Performance (28 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: Dr McDonnell spoke about underpinning the peace. Perhaps he will help to underpin the peace by declaring that the SDLP will support the Police Service of Northern Ireland. SDLP Members should sit on the board of the Police Service rather than cling on to IRA/Sinn Féin or look over their shoulders at it. I welcome the fall in unemployment that has taken place over the past years. Last month...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Term-Time Workers (Education): Retainer Payment (28 Nov 2000)

Edwin Poots: I support the motion. It is a matter that particularly affects my area, Lagan Valley, as it is concentrated in the South Eastern Education and Library Board area. There are a number of anomalies in the system, and these have been accepted by the boards. I would like to home in on the fact that staff signed contracts to do these jobs. They agreed to the terms before they took up the jobs. Let...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Agriculture:  North/South Ministerial Council Sectoral Meeting (4 Dec 2000)

Edwin Poots: I noted in a previous answer to one of my Colleagues that the Minister referred to "British and Irish farmers in Northern Ireland". Perhaps she could give us a breakdown; my understanding is that they are all British subjects. The document says that a report on best practice is being prepared. Was there any discussion on worst practice? In particular, I would like to refer the Minister to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Agriculture Industry (5 Dec 2000)

Edwin Poots: The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development’s role is not an easy one. Although I always try to ask her difficult questions to extract information from the Department, I recognise that there was a crisis in the industry when she took on the position. Nonetheless, the Minister is responsible for leading the way. Her Department must come up with innovative and practical ways to help...

It shows that the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment will receive an additional allocation of £2 million and an extra £4.5 million for EU programmes. The total shown is £1 million. I note that the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development (18 Dec 2000)

Mr Poots will receive a written response from that Department. Similarly, question 12 in the name of Ms Lewsley has been transferred to the Department of the Environment, from which the Member will receive a written...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Budget (2001-02) (18 Dec 2000)

Edwin Poots: I listened intently to the last Member. I am sure that Mr Lenin and Mr Stalin would have been proud of him: he creates more jobs by creating more bureaucracy. He thinks that making more jobs for civil servants is real job creation. However, it has been pointed out for years that Northern Ireland relies too heavily on the public service sector and that more opportunities should be created in...

Edwin Poots: Is it in order for the Member for Strangford to describe constituents in Northern Ireland as tribes?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Economic Development Agencies (19 Dec 2000)

Further to that, can the Minister outline the efficiency that would result from the amalgamation of the agencies? Will he also tell us about ongoing developments with local authorities? The Minister talks about doing this...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Electronic Communcations Bill: Second Stage (15 Jan 2001)

Edwin Poots: I thank Junior Minister Haughey for bringing this Bill before the House on behalf of the Office of the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister. The House will generally welcome the main principles of the Bill. In November the Committee of the Centre considered the Bill’s policy issues and agreed with the need for this legislation to be brought forward. It will bring us into line with...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Skill Shortage: Schools: Capital Spending (16 Jan 2001)

Edwin Poots: I intend to speak for people who do not seem to have much of a voice nowadays — namely, the low-to-middle income families in the Province. We hear a lot about targeting social need and those on the lowest incomes. Many resources have been geared towards helping such people. However, there is another group of people who are employed on low incomes. One partner may have a part-time job. They...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Transport: North/South Ministerial Council and British-Irish Council Meetings (22 Jan 2001)

Edwin Poots: Can the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister explain why they failed to raise the issue of tax on people flying within the United Kingdom at the British-Irish Council meeting? If they did raise the matter it is not in the report. Can they also indicate when the next meeting of the British-Irish Council is to take place? Is the fact that tomorrow’s meeting has been postponed not...
