Northern Ireland Assembly: Special EU Programmes: North/South Ministerial Council Sectoral Meeting (27 Nov 2000)

Mark Durkan: ...Commission’s own requirements. The European Court of Auditors’ report was somewhat critical of the fact that it had not happened in Peace I. It would also be appropriate with regard to public procurement policy.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Programme for Government (24 Oct 2000)

Mr Seamus Mallon: ...budget for 2001-2002. I believe that this signals the beginning of an investment programme which will bring the existing network up to modern safety and quality standards, and that includes the procurement of new rolling stock. As the taskforce made clear, the ten-year transport strategy provides the next key building block in developing a coherent view on this issue. We look forward to...

Mark Durkan: ...force, which reported to the Minister for Regional Development in September. We have decided to make provision for the first stages of the safety work identified in the AD Little report and for the procurement of new rolling stock for the network. Again, this is the sort of spending proposal which would fit appropriately within the framework of the proposed infrastructure Executive...

Northern Ireland Assembly: First Minister (9 Oct 2000)

Peter Robinson: order to judge: that there is a clear and unequivocal commitment that cease-fires are complete and permanent. that the ‘war’ is over and violence ended; that targeting, training, weapons procurement — does that ring a bell with the First Minister in light of the phone calls he has been making to the USA on the subject? — and so-called paramilitary beatings cease forthwith;...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Enterprise, Trade And Investment: North/South Ministerial Council Sectoral Meeting (11 Sep 2000)

Séan Neeson: ...made in these areas? In the communiqué, reference was made to an initiative on e-commerce. Can the Minister update us on what is happening and say whether or not the issue of tendering and public procurement is part of that initiative?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Food Safety and Health:  North/South Ministerial Council Sectoral Meeting (11 Sep 2000)

Bairbre de Brún: ...I know that that is an area that he is particularly concerned about. I am very pleased to be able to say that having worked with colleagues in Dublin, we have identified outline objectives for a procurement system, and these effectively will be the terms of reference for a project team. They will include sharing equipment and facilities, telemedicine, information and communications...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Finance Initiative Scheme (Antrim) (27 Jun 2000)

Mark Durkan: ...transport. Against this background we need to explore, and be ready to exploit fully, any method of delivering services that offers potential for improvement over the more traditional ways of procuring new assets in the public sector. I hardly need to remind Members that these traditional methods are not always fault-free, with cost overruns and delays in construction occurring perhaps too...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Abortion (20 Jun 2000)

Ms Jane Morrice: ...for Northern Ireland reduced. However, banning abortion will not prevent it from happening. We have heard the figures: more than 1,500 women travel from Northern Ireland to England each year to procure terminations. Also, worryingly, a survey conducted by Dr Colin Francome in 1994 found that 11% of Northern Ireland’s general practitioners had encountered the after-effects of amateur,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Supply (Northern Ireland Departments) (12 Jun 2000)

Mark Durkan: ...stock, as well as raising questions Danny O’Connor proposed that asset leasing should be used to help the Transport Holding Company to buy new stock. This is not always a cost-effective means of procuring assets in the public sector, as the Government is able to borrow at lower rates than the private sector. There is not any great advantage in that option, if any at all. There may be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Police: Patten Commission Report (24 Jan 2000)

Prof Monica McWilliams: ...and the district partnership policing boards are likely to be public bodies, so Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act should apply to them in that they should be looking at recruitment, the procurement of services and, indeed, public safety. These are all functions mentioned in Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act. We too will be looking at the legislation when it comes out to see...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Presiding Officer:  No-Confidence Motion (1 Feb 1999)

Edwin Poots: ...North/South bodies — bodies which these Members agreed to and voted for on that particular day. However, we cannot understand what Sinn Féin has had to give up. Some people have had to give up procuring weapons to stand for election; some people have had to give up planting bombs and setting off explosions; and other people have had to give up attempting to murder. That was not much to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Report of First Minister (Designate) and Deputy (18 Jan 1999)

Esmond Birnie: ...the creation of the body with responsibility for aquaculture and marine matters. If the body with responsibility for trade and business development can bring about improvements in trade, supply and procurement on both sides of the border, and this improves the employment situation in both parts of the island, then this will clearly be a win-win situation. I have tended to be sceptical...
