Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Language Issues (19 May 2008)

Edwin Poots: The Department has received several requests for translations. The Member is correct in asserting that, in the main, requests for translations come from the ethnic minority communities, as opposed to the indigenous language communities.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Derry City Football Club (19 May 2008)

Edwin Poots: The initiative rests with the football club, in the first instance. However, I discussed the matter with the previous Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism, and I am happy to discuss it further with the new Minister.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Support Structure for Museums (19 May 2008)

Edwin Poots: My Department is considering that. It would be unacceptable to have a gap in funding between 2009 and 2011. There­fore, if we cannot transfer the Northern Ireland Museums Council’s functions by 2009, it would be logical to continue its funding until that transfer takes place.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Performing Right Society (19 May 2008)

Edwin Poots: Although that is true, people who are involved in the hospitality industry, such as hairdressers, may not be as keen as music writers. However, it is my responsibility to represent the music writers, and I will make their case in Government.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Northern Ireland Strategy for 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (27 May 2008)

Edwin Poots: That ambition could be delivered if we had fit-for-purpose premises. Ultimately, delivery of that ambition depended on our proceeding with plans for a multi-sports stadium. However, until we make a decision on whether to proceed with the stadium, we cannot pursue any plans for Olympic soccer competitions.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Community Festival Funding (9 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: To date, 22 councils have responded to accept the offer of community festivals funding. Three councils — Craigavon, Derry City and Ballymoney — have indicated that they intend to accept the offer. Belfast City Council has yet to formally respond to the offer.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Active Places NI Website (9 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: One would assume that if 5,500 places are promoted across Northern Ireland, most of Northern Ireland is covered.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Upgrading Football Stadia (9 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: There would be a one-year planning process and a two-year building process, so it is really down to the decision-making process. It takes three years, and the closer you get to that, the less of a chance there is of it happening. It is as simple as that.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Sport NI and the Irish Sports Council: Co-operation (9 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: Previously, a bid was made for the 2011 UEFA Under-21 European Championship. That bid has now been withdrawn. The IFA worked with the FAI on that bid, but the lack of a suitable stadium in Northern Ireland prevented that from proceeding.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Culture, Arts And Leisure: Foras na Gaeilge (9 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: There is no provision for Foras na Gaeilge to operate a capital-funding programme in Northern Ireland. No provision has been made in the comprehensive spending review for it to fund capital-development projects for the next three years.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Statutory Committee Membership (17 Jun 2008)

William Hay: As is the case with other similar motions, the motion on Statutory Committee membership will be treated as a business motion. Therefore, there will be no debate. Resolved: That Mr Edwin Poots replace Mr Sammy Wilson as a member of the Education Committee. — [Mr Weir.]

Northern Ireland Assembly: Office Of The First Minister And Deputy First Minister: Regeneration at the Maze/Long Kesh Site (23 Jun 2008)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Finance and Personnel: Central Procurement Directorate: Maze/Long Kesh Regeneration Site (23 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: 4. asked the Minister of Finance and Personnel what has been the role of the Central Procurement Directorate in developing the process to engage private-sector delivery partners at the Maze/Long Kesh regeneration site.      (AQO 4136/08)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council — Education Sectoral Meeting (24 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. It is very clear in Assembly rules that speeches must be translated into English. We are not going to allow this to happen.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Irish-Medium Primary School (24 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: Will the Minister give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Social Development: Programme for Government Commitments: Update (30 Jun 2008)

Edwin Poots: Will the Minister clarify that there is nothing in the Programme for Government that precludes spending on urban regeneration outside the cities of Belfast and Londonderry, and that there is nothing in the Programme for Government that states that every other town and city will receive only crumbs?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Primary-School Funding (1 Jul 2008)

Edwin Poots: I am well aware of that. That is disap­pointing because many schools need capital works to be carried out and facilities to be put in place. Instead, the Minister has handed money back to the Westminster Administration. That is to the detriment of children, the construction industry and the country of Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Executive Matters (16 Sep 2008)

Edwin Poots: Will the Member give way?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Town Centres and PPS 5 (22 Sep 2008)

Edwin Poots: Does the Member recognise that, under the current wording of the motion, the IKEA development would have been turned down?
