Scottish Parliament: Early Learning and Childcare Provision (29 Sep 2016)

Elizabeth Smith: ...; it is also a sign that the issue continues to present the Scottish Government—if not the whole Parliament—with some of its most significant challenges, as the publication of this week’s report makes abundantly clear.

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

Claire Hanna: .... It is disappointing and a little bit unusual that there is no Minister in the Chamber today. I appreciate that this is a complex issue and, indeed, could probably have landed in one of three or four Departments. I understand, however, that it was assigned to the Executive Office and that none of the four Ministers is available, despite the normal publication cycle of the Order Paper....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: BBC Royal Charter and Framework Agreement (27 Sep 2016)

Jonathan Bell: It is an important debate. As I understand it, while it is down as a take-note debate, the UK Government will look at what comes from the Northern Ireland Assembly and from Scotland and Wales. That will then be factored into the report that the UK Government will present on the charter and the agreement to the Privy Council in time for it to come into force on 1 January 2017. The points...

Fra McCann: Like Adrian, I will try to be brief, because there will be a number of other opportunities to discuss the Bill, including in Committee.

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Fergus Ewing: Presiding Officer, “I believe that the risks of leaving the European Union are just too great ... All the economic experts predict that the potential damage a Brexit would do to jobs, mortgages and the economy as a whole across Scotland is just too severe.” Those are not my words but the words of David Mundell, and I could not agree with him more. In June, Mr Mundell and many...

Scottish Parliament: Feminine Hygiene Products (27 Sep 2016)

Annie Wells: As the equalities spokesperson for the Scottish Conservatives, I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak about the topic. We are all familiar with the debate surrounding the much-opposed tampon tax this year and last, and I was pleased to see the United Kingdom Government acting decisively to rid sanitary products of their 5 per cent VAT rate. In March, UK Government leaders spurred on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: State Pension: Impact of Changes on Women (26 Sep 2016)

Naomi Long: No, I will continue, if that is OK. I have supported similar motions in Westminster concerning the pension injustice facing women, and I am wholly supportive of the campaign being run by Women Against State Pension Inequality.

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

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. The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht is responsible for enforcing the European Communities (Birds and Natural Habitats) Regulations 2011, which contain provisions to address the problem of invasive species.
