Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Wildlife and Natural Environment Bill: Final Stage (1 Mar 2011)

Edwin Poots: ..., they have lots in common. As you well know, Mr Speaker, I am a country boy and am proud of the fact that I was raised in the country. I do not care very much where I am, I am proud of my country roots. I can be taken out of the country, but the country will never be taken out of me. As I was taking my breakfast this morning, several hundred starlings landed in my garden. It was a...

Edwin Poots: ...that issue. However, we await the consultation process, and should the subject be raised regularly, we will look at whether it can be addressed. At this time, it is not our intention to deal with roots.

Scottish Parliament: Supporting Social Work (24 Jun 2009)

Trish Godman: ...can be said to have a personality disorder—it is really quite bizarre that anyone should want to do both jobs. We must address the lack of trust and confidence in social work, which is deep-rooted, and take time to fix it. The social work changes lives campaign hopes to identify human interest stories and communicate them in a compelling way to reflect the diversity of social work. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jun 2009)

Gordon Brown: ...and democratic Afghanistan, and the whole country should be rightly proud of the sacrifice these men have made. I have also to report that we have strong reason to believe that a British citizen, Edwin Dyer, has been murdered by an al-Qaeda cell in Mali. I, as will the whole House, utterly condemn this appalling and barbaric act of terrorism. Our thoughts and condolences are with the...

Edwin Poots: ...£1·31 million through Legacy Trust UK to support local Northern Ireland projects that bring together culture, education and sports. There are also opportunities for local communities and grass-roots organisations to get involved and to use the gold dust of the Olympics to raise the profile of their sector. Another key theme is business, and an electronic brokerage system has been...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Future Delivery Arrangements of the Community Festivals Fund (4 Dec 2007)

Edwin Poots: ...departments that deal directly with local communities, and officers who specialise in community development. That direct interface means that councils are best placed to build capacity at grass roots level, and to identify the events that will benefit their communities. My intention, therefore, is to transfer the delivery of the community festivals fund to local authorities from 1 April...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Midnight Soccer in West Belfast (3 Dec 2007)

Edwin Poots: ...for sport and physical recreation 2007-17. On that occasion, I sought to set out the role of sport in society, tracing participation in sport and physical recreation at all levels, from grass-roots community level to achievement at the highest level. In my statement, I also sought to highlight the value of sport. Taking part in sport is fun, fulfilling and is of value in its own right....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Sports Strategy (13 Nov 2007)

Edwin Poots: ...to 2012. However, the transfer of funds from the National Lottery’s distribution fund to the 2012 Olympics does not appear to have taken due account of the needs of community and grass-roots sports. To that end, the matter was raised with Lord Coe last week when he was in Northern Ireland. I also informed him that DCAL had made a bid directly to the Treasury for £53 million for elite...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (16 Mar 2005)

...in scale does not diminish us as men or women, as politicians or ministers—of either kind—or as a nation. It may stop us from getting carried away with ourselves, but most of all it gives us roots, enriches us and enlarges our vision. Even the English have a version of MacDiarmid's vision: "He knows not England, who only England knows". The vision that looks beyond the horizon of me...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Erection of Unauthorised Terrorist Memorials (11 Jun 2002)

Danny Kennedy: ...one reason — to offend and intimidate. The other possible reason is that the erection of the memorial is proof that the unjustifiable Republican war is now over and that, to convince the grass roots that the partitionist settlement agreed to in the Belfast Agreement by Sinn Féin is worth having, with Stormont and Sinn Féin Ministers of the Crown administering British rule in this part...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Draft Budget Statement (5 Nov 2001)

Edwin Poots: ...From the outset of the Assembly, when 11 Departments were created, a radical review of public administration was promised to offset the cost of having five additional Departments. We were promised root and branch reform, that the quangos would be cut to an absolute minimum and that the core issues would be examined. However, we have dragged on and on, and, to date, we have no funding set...

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Minister (9 Oct 2000)

Nigel Dodds: ...pay lip service to the idea that the debate served no useful purpose. Those who claimed it was of no use, but participated in it, gave the lie to that. The DUP is listening to the Unionist grass roots and reflecting what people on the ground are saying. One should never forget that the Ulster Unionists who sit in the Assembly do not even represent half their own party. They claim to speak...

Petition: Libya and Iraq (Sanctions) (29 Nov 1995)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...British Government's entrenched support for United Nations Security Council resolution 986. He writes: Can I bring to your attention … the long term erosion of trust and historical ties taking root among the upcoming generation". I sensed that during my visit. The majority of UK educated Iraqis are reaching retirement age and are being replaced by a generation fed on suspicion of the...

Companies Registration Office (2 Dec 1982)

Mr Dale Campbell-Savours: ...Observer styled it: the daftest piece of privatisation yet. The public opposition to the proposals is very understandable, but I propose to point out to the House a legal objection which is deeply rooted in the spirit and letter of harmonised European company law. I have mentioned the first directive of the European Communities on company law already If one looks at article 3, paragraph...

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside Region (19 Jun 1972)

Mr Patrick Duffy: ..., steel and wool textiles lulled many into a false sense of economic security. Above all, my right hon. and hon. Friends have hammered home their experience, supported by recent analysis, that the root cause of the region's economic weakness is a lack of growth industry, aggravated by the persistence of an out-dated industrial structure. Furthermore, those two factors, and others such as...
