Scottish Parliament: NHS Staffing (21 Sep 2016)

Shona Robison: We value the work of all our NHS and care staff, whether they originate from Scotland or elsewhere. European Union citizens working in Scotland, who account for approximately 5 per cent of the workforce, make a huge contribution. We want to do everything that we can to ensure that they continue to work here in the NHS and care services. I hope that we have a productive and constructive debate...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Health Service Provision: North Antrim (20 Sep 2016)

Jim Allister: To distil the health needs and issues of North Antrim into four minutes is probably impossible. I think if there is one core issue of concern as we go forward, particularly as we await the Bengoa panel, it is to underwrite and underscore the necessity of maintaining the acute facilities of the Causeway Hospital. Without them, there is such a gap in provision for the whole northern part of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Road Maintenance Budget Deficit (20 Sep 2016)

Richie McPhillips: I have too much to say; I do not have time. — his constituency of West Tyrone. He stated that the west had been neglected for years in the road maintenance budget.

Throughout the debate,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Road Maintenance Budget Deficit (20 Sep 2016)

Jennifer Palmer: I thank those who tabled the motion for bringing it to the Chamber. It is, without doubt, a vital issue that is in danger of being obscured by the Department's focus on large prestige projects. Simply put, maintaining the roads is not the most exciting or interesting aspect of governance. It gives precious few opportunities for press conferences or photo opportunities; indeed, the idea of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Japanese Knotweed (20 Sep 2016)

Michelle McIlveen: If you do not mind, I would like to move on quickly.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Dogs: Meat (20 Sep 2016)

Alok Sharma: The consumption of dog meat is legal in many countries, and the United Kingdom has no grounds to intervene or take trade measures to prevent this. We continue to make our views known to the governments of those countries where this practice continues; most recently I raised this issue with the South Korean Ambassador ahead of the Westminster Hall Debate on 12 September. Our Ambassador in...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisons: Education (20 Sep 2016)

Sam Gyimah: Prisons should be places of safety and reform. I am determined to make sure that we achieve better outcomes for prisoners in employment, education and health. Fewer than half the people entering prisons have basic standards of English and Maths and around a third have identified learning difficulties or disabilities. This is a huge problem because we know that low levels of education can...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (EU Referendum) (20 Sep 2016)

Joan McAlpine: I was rather alarmed to read recently in the Financial Times that our fate appears to be in the hands of the chancellor, Philip Hammond, who has emerged as the sole voice of common sense in the Cabinet, holding the thin blue line to protect access to the single market against the three Brexiteers—Boris Johnson, David Davis and Liam Fox—who appear to believe that sailing off in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Used Tyres (19 Sep 2016)

Roy Beggs: I, too, support the motion, which highlights the toxic nature of compounds given off as a result of burning tyres in an uncontrolled fashion. I also have some sympathy for the amendment. It is important that we do not create gaps between legislation in Northern Ireland and the Republic from which criminals could profit. The most succinct and informed document that I have come across on the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: 'A Vision for Northern Ireland outside the EU' (19 Sep 2016)

Steve Aiken: ....] — we are answering your question — into the economy, which staved off the immediate crisis.
