Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland (19 Apr 2021)

Jim Allister: ...a single passage in the Belfast Agreement that prevented the United Kingdom leaving as one nation, that prevented the two parts of Ireland belonging to different single markets and that required a border in the Irish Sea? If the protocol, by its very authors, is built on such flagrant falsehoods, how is such a warped and intolerable imposition meant to be experienced and endured? Does she...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Health: Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaccine: Roll-out (15 Mar 2021)

Jim Allister: I congratulate the Department on the exemplary roll-out of vaccinations. We have heard much talk during COVID about the need for cross-border collaboration. Therefore, how and when did the Minister know that it turned out that the Republic of Ireland had issues with this vaccine?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Organised Crime (1 Mar 2021)

Jim Allister: I want to ask the Minister about the role of the National Crime Agency in respect of the cross-border task force. Can she expand a little on how extensive it is? Since that agency does not have a stand-alone budget, all expenditure eats into the budgets of each constituent part. How far is that an inhibitor of involvement in the cross-border agency?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: North/South and East-west Trade (23 Feb 2021)

Jim Allister: Thank you. The EU showed itself in its true vindictive colours and, of course, usefully indicated where the border should be —

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Condemnation of Threats to Workers at Border Control Posts (2 Feb 2021)

Jim Allister: ...itself. It is political action that is seen to be effective and determined that is the best antidote to threats of this nature. Before people get too sanctimonious, let me say to the House that the border between the EU and the United Kingdom is in the Irish Sea because of threats of violence if it had been put in the place where it should be. It was the implicit — nay, sometimes...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: EU Proposal to Invoke Article 16 (1 Feb 2021)

Jim Allister: ...the people of Northern Ireland, even in circumstances where we might need vaccines to save lives. That does not matter. The second takeaway point is that, after all, it turns out that an Irish land border is possible, if and when it suits the EU, no problem. That would have been the manifestation of the decision: a land border would have kept the vaccines out. The third takeaway for me is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland: Implications (18 Jan 2021)

Jim Allister: ...of the protocol, does he too, though, not have a credibility problem? He is the Minister who told the House on a number of occasions that he had no intention of facilitating infrastructure at the border, yet he is the Minister whose Department has built the infrastructure for the Irish Sea border. Having built the border, what does he now intend to do to get rid of it?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Brexit Preparations and Post-transition Regulations (14 Dec 2020)

Jim Allister: ...very destructive nature of the protocol to the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom. Why then is her Agriculture Minister building the very infrastructure for the Irish Sea border at our ports over her "blood red" lines"? Why did she and her MLAs vote last Tuesday to bring in, in perpetuity, 45 EU directives and regulations so as to help implement the protocol?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Border Checks (30 Nov 2020)

Jim Allister: How does the deputy First Minister feel about the guarded border that is being provided by the Republic of Ireland in respect of COVID-19? Does that not illustrate the faux anger and farce of opposition, both from Dublin and politicians such as herself, to as much as an extra camera on the border when it came to Brexit? Is she so wedded to an ideology that she does not care whether...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: North/South Ministerial Council: Education Sectoral Format (9 Nov 2020)

Jim Allister: ...of teacher qualifications, in Northern Ireland, of course, the most appalling issue is the discrimination that arises from the Catholic certificate. Has that been addressed yet? Is there a cross-border element to that, in respect of teachers from here who want to teach in the Republic?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Irish Sea Border: Infrastructure (3 Nov 2020)

Jim Allister: T6. Mr Allister asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to state whether he can yet lift the veil of secrecy and update the House on the infrastructure for an Irish Sea border that his Department is providing at our ports and to outline where and when that documentation can be inspected. (AQT 606/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Irish Sea Border Infrastructure: Proposals (12 Oct 2020)

Jim Allister: 1. Mr Allister asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs why the details of his Department’s proposals for Irish Sea border infrastructure at Larne port are not available for public scrutiny. (AQO 863/17-22)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Irish Sea Border Infrastructure: Proposals (12 Oct 2020)

Jim Allister: ...of the Minister to blame officials and the Department in Westminster to salve his unionist conscience. Is he not in danger of becoming the Minister who provides the infrastructure for an Irish Sea border? Is that not what is really happening?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Consequences of the British Government Breaking International Law (5 Oct 2020)

Jim Allister: ...about threats to business and job losses, when the very thing that they are supporting is the thing that will do that. Does Sinn Féin care? No, because the ideological achievement of driving a border down the Irish Sea trumps everything for Sinn Féin. My only regret is that some who should know better — some who recognise the pattern of needless motions — will egg them on today by...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Honouring the EU Withdrawal Agreement Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Jim Allister: Chapter and verse: which clause or paragraph says that you cannot have regulations between Northern Ireland and the Republic? Which clause says that you cannot have a border between Northern Ireland and the Republic? Which clause says that you must trash article 6 of the Act of Union? None of them — not a single one. Yet the proponents tell us, "You have to protect the precious Belfast...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Climate Change Bill (8 Sep 2020)

Jim Allister: ...in Northern Ireland as an immoveable foundational pillar. Why, then, is the Minister continuing to be ready to provide infrastructure at our ports in Northern Ireland to create an Irish Sea border?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Implementation of the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland (7 Sep 2020)

Jim Allister: ..., of course, it is all dressed up, most disingenuously, as being about supporting the Belfast Agreement. The Belfast Agreement, I remind the House, never had anything to say about trade across the border in terms of whether there should or should not be a border.

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Executive Office: 'The European Union (Withdrawal) Act and Common Frameworks: 26 December 2019 to 25 March 2020' (16 Jun 2020)

Jim Allister: Taking what the Minister said in her earlier answer about withdrawal from the EU, am I now to take it that the First Minister accepts the iniquitous protocol, which will create a border down the Irish Sea? Does she no longer fear or think that it will create constitutional and economic damage of a catastrophic nature? Is that why it seems that the Executive are now working to implement the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Coronavirus Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (24 Mar 2020)

Jim Allister: ..., but it does concern me somewhat that, in recent weeks, it was the greenery of some people's view that led their thinking about the schools needing to close: because it had been done south of the border, it had to be done north of the border. I think that it was those people who were allowing their politics to rule their head in this matter. Will that same politics rule their head if it...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Coronavirus Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (24 Mar 2020)

Jim Allister: ...necessary support of the army in this part of the United Kingdom? Is there going to be any fetter on that? There certainly should not be. If we get to a point where hospitals, particularly on the border, are being overrun by people from outside the jurisdiction, anxious for help, are there steps we can, would or should take in that regard? Are there powers in the Bill to allow the Minister...
