Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Soil Sampling (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: That is why it would have been great to have someone like me as Minister over the last few years as opposed to the Assembly crashing and not operating. Those three years were wasted. A consequence of not having devolution is that everybody suffers in Northern Ireland, including the environment.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Food Producers: Protocol Benefits (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: The fundamentals of the protocol relate first to whether it is a democratic action. Does it change the constitution? It does change the constitution. Therefore, if you want to change the constitution, you should ask the people. If the Member is a democrat, he will want to ensure that the people are asked to support the protocol by a referendum or that we remove the protocol and find another...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Pet Travel in the UK (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: The European Union's expectation that we should treat animals for tapeworm and, indeed, rabies was put back in the first instance to 1 July. I chose to defer that further to 1 October because, again, we need solutions. No one, but no one, can argue that this poses a threat to the single market. Doing what the European Union wants us to do poses a threat to people who are disabled, who are not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Dale Farm: Arla Contract (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: If Dale Farm has achieved something on the back of the protocol, I congratulate it, and I commiserate with the many thousands of businesses that are damaged as a consequence of the protocol.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Illegal Waste Dumping (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: We have the Mills report; a piece of work that was actioned by the then Minister to identify the issues, problems and solutions. We have followed the recommendations of that report. My focus is to ensure that we provide safety when it comes to drinking water in the River Faughan. Testing is carried out weekly to ensure that the water quality remains good, and it does. We are looking at...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: DAERA Ballykelly: Staff Complement (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: Some 250 DAERA staff were located in Ballykelly House when it opened in May 2018. Since then, a further 87 DAERA staff have relocated to Ballykelly, bringing the total to 337. The Department also has plans to relocate a further 54 posts during the 2017-2022 mandate. When filled, that would increase the staff complement to 391. The need to relocate those further posts will remain under review.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Points of Entry Delays: Compensation (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: As Minister for the Department whose responsibilities are most affected by the implementation of the Northern Ireland protocol, I am fully aware of the difficulties that it is causing, especially the impact of additional new rules and the barriers that they place on the movement of goods, products and live animals from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, to which I am firmly opposed. I feel...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Exports: Dual Market Access (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: It is primarily a matter for the industry how it makes the best use of the current set of trading arrangements. Invest NI continues to provide support to Northern Ireland exporters. In discussions with government, I have been clear in my view that the protocol causes significant difficulties for Northern Ireland businesses because of the trade friction introduced on goods moving from GB to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Tributes to Mr Gordon Dunne MLA (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: Today, we genuinely mourn the loss of a very special person, Gordon Dunne MBE, MLA, who gave 36 years of his life to public service. He got elected in 2011 to this institution, gaining a third seat for the Democratic Unionist Party in North Down, a seat that would not have been gained for the Democratic Unionist Party had it not been for the standing of Gordon Dunne in North Down, especially...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Appointment of the First Minister and deputy First Minister (17 Jun 2021)

Alex Maskey: ...justice institutions, including the Policing Board." Members, the Pledge of Office has now been read into the record of proceedings, and I will proceed with the nomination process. I call Mr Edwin Poots to nominate a Member of the Assembly to be the First Minister. I will allow him up to three minutes to say a few words in support of the nomination, if he so chooses.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Simultaneous Interpretation of Assembly Business in Irish and Ulster Scots (15 Jun 2021)

John O'Dowd: ...that's how we got back to the Assembly, and therefore we cannot afford to move away from NDNA"? The Member may think that those are my words, but they are the words of the leader of his party, Edwin Poots. Are you committed to NDNA or not?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business (14 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The resignation of the First Minister has taken place today, and the appointment of a new First Minister is critical to the Assembly. I wish to make it clear that I am ready to nominate a First Minister at the earliest opportunity, and I encourage that to happen. It is important that we respect each other's mandates. In order to deal with important COVID...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Undermining the Public Health Message (14 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: I want to make it absolutely clear that what happened in the Europa Hotel was wrong. The Member of Parliament who was caught up in it was wrong in what he did. I welcome the fact that he apologised very quickly for what happened and is, therefore, seeking to put things right. I sincerely wish that Sinn Féin had apologised for its actions at the Bobby Storey funeral, where a far greater...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Personal Statement from the First Minister Arlene Foster (14 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: I thank our outgoing First Minister, the Rt Hon Arlene Foster MLA, for her very considered and, indeed, powerful speech this afternoon. Arlene and I have worked together since 2003, and we have had much common ground over those years. Arlene is a unionist, and she is also a devolutionist. I believe that has, largely, been built on the fact that she and her family came through troubled times....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Speaker's Business: Ministerial Appointments: Mr Frew and Miss McIlveen (14 Jun 2021)

Alex Maskey: Further to that, I advise the Assembly that Edwin Poots MLA, as nominating officer for the DUP, nominated Paul Frew MLA as Minister for the Economy and Ms Michelle McIlveen MLA as Minister of Education. Mr Frew and Ms McIlveen each accepted the nomination and affirmed the Pledge of Office in my presence and that of the Chief Executive at 11.00 am.

Agricultural Exports from Australia: Tariffs (27 May 2021)

Greg Hands: .... In fact, I have met the Ulster Farmers Union twice in the past week to discuss these issues in particular. I met Diane Dodds, the Northern Ireland Economy Minister yesterday, and I am meeting Edwin Poots, the Northern Ireland Agriculture Minister, later today, so we are doing extensive outreach within Northern Ireland. I would point out to the hon. Lady the huge opportunities for the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Mullaghglass Landfill Site (25 May 2021)

Edwin Poots: Yes, I have plans to visit the site in the near future. I recognise that there have been a substantial number of complaints from the residents in that area. I believe that it is not a tolerable situation, so I want to ensure that either we get on top of the odour problem or we look at the suspension of activities at the site.
