Emma Little Pengelly: ...of the opportunities, challenges and barriers that full participation in international trade entails. It will come as no surprise to hon.

Friend’s points are valid; that constitutes a real and present risk to our economy....

Emma Little Pengelly: listen to businesses about their needs, and the challenges that they found when trying to apply for those types of funds––the red tape and other difficulties.

Emma Little Pengelly: .... I am disappointed by the lack of representation across the Chamber, particularly on the Benches in front of me, as many people come to this House to talk about Northern Ireland in relation to Brexit and other matters.

Food Advertising (Protection of Children from Targeting): EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (26 Jun 2018)

Emma Little Pengelly: I welcome the motion before the House today. As with the previous debate, I believe this is a logical and sensible approach as we move through Brexit into the transition and into renegotiating these matters.

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Emma Little Pengelly: ...a little dull in ambition, but it is undoubtedly absolutely necessary and, in my view, is a prudent and timely approach to this matter, for, to grow and maximise the opportunities in relation to Brexit, we must first ensure that there is no regression. As indicated by the Chairperson of the International Trade Committee, we on the Committee have been examining the issue of transitioning or...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Emma Little Pengelly: ...we cannot be held to ransom by narrow and divisive cultural and identity politics. This is a terrible situation in Northern Ireland, and although there has been much talk in the House today about Brexit and its impact, in Northern Ireland we are in the twilight zone: we have a senior civil service in charge of Departments, with no accountability, because we have neither direct rule...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)
