Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: We have heard a lot today, and we have heard a lot over the weekend since this poll took place. People do not like it when the little people speak, and, when people are given their democratic right, there is something infinitely wrong with that, particularly from those opposite. It will soon get to the stage, I suppose, where there will be sections of our community and our great nation who...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: United Kingdom Withdrawal from the European Union (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I will let you in later. I have heard you long enough. The EU referendum was a momentous democratic moment for the United Kingdom. The decision to leave is, without question, one of the biggest political moments that any of us have experienced. For me, the decision to leave is the right one for the United Kingdom. For me, the decision to leave could not have been better. I believe that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage (21 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for giving way. Does he agree that broadband is fundamental, particularly in rural areas, to developing business and taking it forward? In my area, we have many black spots where small businesses and rural communities cannot access the Internet. Does he accept that much more needs to be done, concentrating in particular on rural communities?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage (21 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Can you clarify whether it is in order for a Member to move a motion to which their name is not attached?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Early Years Development and Preschool Childcare (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this motion, which is of some considerable importance, and I welcome the fact that it has come before the Assembly at a very early stage. I also welcome the Minister of Education. I think that this is his first time responding as Minister, but if it is not, it is the first time that I have had the opportunity to publicly welcome him. I look forward to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Early Years Development and Preschool Childcare (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Oh yes. You want me to sit down; right; I will do so in a moment. I do have concerns, and I wonder whether Carmel Hanna is on the same page as me: does she feel that it is acceptable for parents who earn up to £100,000 to be provided with free childcare? I have no doubt that the SDLP will deal with that one.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Early Years Development and Preschool Childcare (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I apologise to the Member; I think that I called her "Carmel". That was her wonderful mother. It is Claire.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Illegal Drugs (6 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I commend those who have brought the motion to the House. As others said, it is a timely motion, and it is one, I am delighted to see, on which the House finds itself in agreement across the Benches. That is also the case with the amendment. Today, we will have the first response from the new Minister. I welcome her here in that capacity, and I wish her well in her new post. I think that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Illegal Drugs (6 Jun 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I extend an invitation to the Minister to come to Breakthru in Dungannon. If you have never been to Dungannon, Minister, your education is not complete. [Laughter.] I am sure that you will do that one day.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Appointment of the First Minister and deputy First Minister (12 May 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Mr Speaker, before I say anything more, I congratulate you on your elevation to the position of Speaker. I certainly have confidence that you will do an excellent job, as you did when you were Principal Deputy Speaker. I wish you well and hope that I and everyone around the Chamber will give the support that you deserve. I congratulate my party colleague Arlene Foster on her position as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Appointment of the First Minister and deputy First Minister (12 May 2016)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Houses in Multiple Occupation Bill: Final Stage (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank all the Members for their contributions. What has been clear, not just today but throughout the passage of the Bill, are the supportive, positive remarks for the introduction of this important piece of housing legislation. I just want to say that it appears and has come across very clearly that the House is in general support. Some Members are more enthusiastic than others;...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Houses in Multiple Occupation Bill: Final Stage (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I beg to move That the Houses in Multiple Occupation Bill [NIA 60/11-16] do now pass. I welcome this further opportunity to speak about my Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Bill, which consists of 91 clauses and eight schedules and is significant and necessary legislation. A new HMO definition and associated exceptions now provide clarification of what is or is not to be classed as an HMO....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Social Housing: Grosvenor Barracks, Enniskillen (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: My task and responsibility is to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of social-sector housing right across the Province. Like the Member, I am favourably disposed to ensuring that includes Fermanagh and South Tyrone. I think that he is trying to dance on a pinhead, but if he wants to talk about the issue, my door is open, and he is welcome to discuss it with me.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Belfast Streets Ahead: Phase 3 (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: My Department submitted a planning application in April 2015 for the Belfast Streets Ahead phase 3 project. It received approval from the Belfast planning office in November 2015. Subject to additional approvals, economic appraisal and traffic regulation orders, as well as funding, the construction stage of the phase 3 project will take place from early 2017 to mid 2019. Furthermore, my...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Belfast Streets Ahead: Phase 3 (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for her question. When she hears the answer, she may agree with me that there is good rationale for that. A report by TLT — a top-50 UK law firm — has highlighted untapped potential for retailers here in Northern Ireland, placing us among the top three regions with the greatest opportunities for development. Belfast is the main retail centre here, and the enhancements...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Voluntary and Community Sector (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Maybe it would be appropriate at this time, as I understand that Anna Lo will not be seeking re-election to the House, for me to wish her well. I had the honour, or privilege, of serving under her when she was, and still is, Chairperson of the Environment Committee. Despite differing on issues sometimes, I think that we struck up a good workmanlike relationship and just got on with things....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Voluntary and Community Sector (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: Yes, I think I would. I am quite happy to say it as briefly as that.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: State Pension Age: Impact on Women (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Maurice Morrow: I thank the Member for his question. I believe that he is referring to the recent media coverage that criticised the Government for failing to inform women that their state pension age had changed despite the original legislation having been enacted in 1995. While it is unfortunate that some women appear to have been unaware of the change to their state pension age, we must recognise that...
