Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Condemnation of Threats to Workers at Border Control Posts (2 Feb 2021)

Matthew O'Toole: First, I send my best wishes to the Agriculture Minister, Edwin Poots, as others have done. I hope that he is back at his job soon. I also stand in solidarity with any workers who have been affected by what has happened at Larne, and with Stephen Farry, on whose constituency office graffiti has been daubed. As others said, it is extremely important that we approach the issue with extreme...

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Protocol (20 Jan 2021)

Claire Hanna: I thank the Secretary of State for his words about Edwin Poots. Everybody here is rooting for the Minister in his battle. Has the Secretary of State given any thought to structures he can use to engage with the Irish Government on the protocol and other relevant issues now that they are not meeting within EU frameworks? Specifically, does he think the British-Irish Council or the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Climate Change and the Introduction of a Climate Change Act (21 Jul 2020)

Edwin Poots: .... It is very easy to say that a cow produces so much methane but no one is saying what a cow does with regard to sequestration of carbon. She eats that lovely green grass; that green grass has roots that goes down into the soil and that green grass captures carbon and takes it down into the soil. The cow actually tramples grass down into the soil along with it, particularly cows that are...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Mr Ivan Davis (23 Mar 2020)

Paul Givan: I did not know Ivan to the same extent as my colleague Edwin Poots did, nor did I have the history that his family did with the Davis family. I first met Ivan on a school tour in Parliament Buildings shortly after the Belfast Agreement was signed. Ivan had been elected for Lagan Valley with his colleague Billy Bell of the Ulster Unionist Party. My school principal was an avid Ulster Unionist....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Afforestation Programme (2 Mar 2020)

Edwin Poots: ...young. That is all an aside. On planning policy, trees are more challenging in built-up areas. I suspect that most Members have been lobbied about getting trees taken away and so forth because of roots growing through footpaths or leaves shedding on people's roofs and causing problems. Tree planting in urban areas and, especially, identifying it through planning need to be done with the...

Scottish Parliament: Commonwealth War Graves Commission (9 Jan 2020)

Maurice Corry: ...of architectural design from the beginning. In its commemorative planning it utilised a wealth of skills and experience by having three well-known principal architects: Sir Reginald Blomfield, Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Making Life Better 2013-2023: Strategic Framework for Public Health (24 Jun 2014)

Edwin Poots: ...and on addressing health inequalities.  That is what Transforming Your Care and this framework, Making Life Better, seek to reinforce.  However, the health system on its own cannot tackle the root causes of poor health and well-being.  We must also look beyond health to a societal approach, requiring national leadership, strategic and local alliances and coherent collective and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Mental Health (28 Apr 2014)

Edwin Poots: ...and well-being for children and young people.  The Public Health Agency is taking forward a range of programmes to promote mental health and emotional well-being in our young people, including the roots of empathy courses in school and the iMatter pupils' emotional health and well-being programme.  The next suicide prevention strategy will also include an early intervention section,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Emergency Department Review (10 Feb 2014)

Edwin Poots: ...and placement of patients in the hospital is good but that the system has, on occasions, struggled to cope with the large numbers of patients who are awaiting admission.  It appears that one root of the problem is as much in the delay in discharging patients who no longer need care in the acute setting as in the flows into and through the hospital.  When large numbers are waiting for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Farming Community:  Mental Well-being (3 Feb 2014)

Edwin Poots: ..., I helped launch an evaluation report on the community network approach to promoting mental health and preventing suicide in the northern area.  The report highlighted how this approach, which is rooted in partnership working and maximising community involvement, brings mental health promotion and suicide prevention into the heart of rural communities.  I firmly support the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Exploitation of Children and Young People (30 Sep 2013)

Gordon Dunne: ...to prevent any further exploitation of our children and young people, whether they are in care homes or living at home in our communities.  I welcome the recent measures that the Health Minister, Edwin Poots, undertook.  I commend him for taking swift action in announcing an independent expert-led inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Northern Ireland.  That is an important measure...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Emergency Services: Day of Recognition (17 Sep 2013)

Edwin Poots: ...ways to further the relationships that were built between schools, communities and the services during the games.  The aim is to provide a new generation of sports ambassadors and champion grass-roots sports. Our police, firefighters, prison officers and customs officers who took part in the World Police and Fire Games events demonstrated that they are on a par with service personnel...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Health Inequalities: Report of the Committee for Health, Social Services and Public Safety (18 Feb 2013)

Edwin Poots: ...associated factors, such as diet, alcohol and tobacco use.  The review also drew attention to the evidence that investment in early childhood interventions can reduce the societal inequalities rooted in poverty, by providing young children from disadvantaged backgrounds with a more equitable start in life.  Early interventions have the potential to reap long-term benefits, as they can...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Planning Bill: Second Stage (22 Jan 2013)

Edwin Poots: ...health.  Certainly, on suicide issues, I could receive considerable help from other Departments that would save lives.  I have said frequently that the approach to suicide prevention must be rooted in partnership working and maximising community involvement.  Therefore, it is not just about government. That is exactly the approach that the Public Health Agency has taken in the wider...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Health: Transforming Your Care (9 Oct 2012)

Edwin Poots: The Roots of Empathy programme is excellent value for money and is a programme that I support strongly.  A high level of interest has been shown by stakeholders, including staff at primary schools and early year providers, in the Roots of Empathy programme.  The PHA is examining the possible scale and pace of expansion of the programme, and a major benefit of it is the legacy of skilled...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Royal Victoria Hospital: X-rays (25 Jun 2012)

Edwin Poots: We could possibly answer some of the questions, and we could speculate on some of them. We have sought to carry out a root-cause analysis of what has happened. I understand that, earlier this year, a new departmental head instigated a course of work, looking at X-rays. It was not something that would have immediately sprung to mind in terms of what had actually happened. It was only on having...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Northern Ireland Assembly (12 Dec 2011)

Edwin Poots: ...children’s homes. Members should remember that many children who enter residential care do so at a later age. Some have had a very difficult life prior to entering the care system and have deep-rooted problems. Unfortunately, some will already have been the victims of sexual abuse or sexual exploitation. Indeed, that may be the reason for their coming into care. Working with those...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: School Closures: South Eastern Education and Library Board (28 Nov 2011)

John O'Dowd: ...’. Whatever comes out of this report that is in the interests of the population … it is incumbent on us to meet the challenge and implement it.” Those are the words of our Health Minister, Edwin Poots. I am not criticising Mr Poots for that. He is absolutely right: we have to implement change and stand up to the difficult decisions that we refer to. Mr Poots went on to say that he...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Hospitals: Missed Appointments (19 Sep 2011)

Edwin Poots: ...who are waiting for review appointments; developing pathways that reduce unnecessary follow-up appointments; and the production of an annual report by the trusts providing an analysis of the root causes and demographics of non-attendance, together with performance against local “Did not attend” targets.
