Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flags: South Belfast (27 Sep 2016)

Doug Beattie: ...coming up with solutions for themselves. This was an intra-community, not cross-community, initiative, but it had a cross-community effect in Portadown. Suddenly, we saw that flags that were up in the nationalist area were not going up in interface areas. It was not perfect, but it absolutely worked. I do not like seeing flags on lamp posts, but I would like to see my flag — the...

Paul Givan: ...within 200 metres of premises. We want to make sure that, when supermarkets have areas in their premises that are zoned off for selling alcohol, they are not able to advertise outside that area as well.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Council Leaders: Meeting (27 Sep 2016)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: or even a west Belfast zone in his constituency. I have an open mind in that regard.

Christopher Stalford: ...drinks promotions. I welcome that. I also welcome the fact that the phenomena of dial-a-drink or dial-a-carry-out is to be tackled. As has been said numerous times by many Members, we need to take action in that area. I am pleased that there is agreement across the Committee that more must be done to help microbreweries and craft distillers. I think that there is agreement in that...

That is a huge population in a rural area who are concerned that they will lose out on services. I will summarise some of the issues raised. Caoimhe Archibald talked about how the broadband issue added to the problem. I will...

There are opportunities for Northern Ireland to be used for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Subregional Football Stadia: Funding (26 Sep 2016)

Paul Givan: ...clubs across a range of sports to have a look at their facilities. The Member had me in Larne with his colleague Mr Hilditch. They felt it necessary to bring the Member of Parliament for the area to that meeting as well; so, the case for Larne Football Club was made very strongly. Ultimately, as with every other club, Larne Football Club will be assessed against the criteria when they...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Jobs and Benefits Offices (26 Sep 2016)

Sandra Overend: ...the local jobs and benefits office in Cookstown.

Paul Givan: ...result of complaints and so on, and I know that, in his constituency, a number of issues were identified when the Housing Executive looked at 35 properties in the Ballymena, Larne and Carrickfergus area after cold, damp or condensation problems were reported. After investigation, including borescope testing, it was found that the properties had no cavity wall insulation at all or that the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: NAMA Revelations: Public Confidence (26 Sep 2016)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: ...a bonus payment by receiving all the land and property of John Miskelly. While ordinary people have gone through hardship, damage, lengthening unemployment queues and emigration, what has happened? He is back this week, in the Market area of south Belfast, with an office development — a monstrous office development — in a working-class street. I do not think that there is a...

Scottish Parliament: Energy Storage Systems (22 Sep 2016)
