Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Domestic Abuse, Rape and Sexual Crime (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I heard recently about a case in which a female stabbed her husband or partner, and he broke her jaw in return. What happens when that goes to court? I suspect that that is a 50:50 and will not travel anywhere. I do not believe that domestic violence always comes from one side, the male. It also comes from females, no disrespect to them, but maybe the prevalent side is the male side. I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Sustainable Schools Policy and Area Planning (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I am sure that the Minister will agree that parental choice is very important. How do you propose to safeguard that going forward?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: When I first read this motion, I could not make up my mind whether the SDLP was still in denial or whether, in fact, it had come round to accepting the reality of the situation, which is, of course, that the people of the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union. I am happy to state that I was one of those. Not only was I one of those, I campaigned and encouraged everybody else...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: We did not bring the motion. You brought it.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: The SDLP should step into the real world and realise that the people of the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union, not to leave Europe. The sooner the SDLP gets round to accepting that, life will be a lot easier for it and it will maybe start to be a wee bit more progressive in its thinking going forward. I listened to Mr Smith, I think it was, and it is ironic that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Thank you. I heard what the Member said, and I do not think he was entirely accurate in that. Many in the debate, particularly those who moved the motion, said that Northern Ireland will be the lost cause. Indeed, it was Ms Hanna who very boldly stated that the EU understands Northern Ireland far better than the United Kingdom. If that is the case, you have absolutely nothing to worry...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes. We will be in a better position come the day we leave the European Union. I understand that article 50 —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: — is going to be triggered at the end of March.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: EU Special Status for Northern Ireland (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Is it not a pity it is not sooner?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Intergovernmental Agreement on Cooperation on Criminal Justice Matters (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Minister for her statement. In it, she said: "Human trafficking remains a concern in both jurisdictions." I am aware that new legislation is at a fairly advanced stage in the Dublin regime. Were there any discussions on this new legislation? How supportive is an Garda Síochána of it?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes. From statements made by the Minister, I know that much, if not all, of the information, is already available. I know that you would be a good researcher, and you or your staff could research all of that information; or, I suspect that, if you contact the Department, it might be able to assist you and send you all the information that you want. As one who has gone through it, I can...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for giving way. Mrs Long should get it into her head that it was not so much about amending the motion; the motion should have been withdrawn altogether.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: This is a debate that never needed to take place. When we look at the Opposition Benches today, we can see that the Opposition now agree that it should never have taken place. Of the parties that are co-signatories to the amendment, the Ulster Unionists can manage five Members and the SDLP one. Even they realise that this is a bit of a non-event.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Mrs Long continually fires from a sedentary position, but whenever she is up talking, she has not that much to say, at least not that much that is worth —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Hold on a moment. [Laughter.] We have heard you parroting off all afternoon. What you want to say must be very important. Well, there is the Speaker up there, so go up and get your name down. For goodness' sake, you are up and down there like a jack-in-the-box. Some of your colleagues will give way. They will be up in a few minutes telling a great story about a non-event. It is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I knew that it was a mistake to give way, but there you go.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Associations: Reclassification (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Thank you, Mr Speaker. There is no one in the House, particularly among those of us who have served for some years on councils and elsewhere, who is not very aware of the importance of social-sector housing. We are also very aware of the waiting lists that exist, but we are also waiting for some blue-sky thinking from those who seem to have all the answers on how to deal with a chronic...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Snares Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 (3 Oct 2016)
